United States President Donald Trump on Sunday urged leaders of Saudi Arabia to "drive out terrorists and extremists", reported Reuters, while on his first trip overseas since assuming office.

It was closely watched given the anti-Muslim comments by Trump during his presidential campaign and his attempt after his inauguration to institute a temporary USA entry ban on nationals and refugees from several Muslim-majority countries, although not including Saudi Arabia.

Some regarded his speech as a positive step towards Muslims.

Further, he said, "Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear: Barbarism will deliver you no glory... if you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief and your soul will be condemned". But not everyone was convinced that it was the case.

The official said the Saudi Arabia stop was an "amazing coming together of a lot of people" who are "looking for an opportunity to follow the lead of what the president wanted to speak about". "This is a battle between good and evil".

"The mood was a genuinely good mood", Ross said, adding that at the end of the trip he was gifted "two very big bushels of dates" from Saudi officials. Drive them out of your communities. King Abdullah of Jordan, for example, the Muslim king of a Muslim country, has repeatedly characterized Islamicist terrorism as a civil war within Islam.
