Trump's first foreign trip has high stakes at each stop

A White House adviser said Ms Trump, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, will be along for six days of the nine-day trip. The kingdom needs the United States as a security guarantor in the region more than the USA now needs Saudi Arabia. We're going to Israel. We're going to Rome.

On April 7, one day after a U.S. decision and a military action in Syria, Trump informed King Salman through a phone call about the limited military operation in the war-torn country and they agreed that it was essential to respond to the chemical attack against innocent civilians. "And while the pictures from the trip may be great, the White House can't change the headlines that will follow him wherever he goes". She joins us now.

TAMARA KEITH, BYLINE: Hi, Audie. The itinerary, which begins Saturday in Saudi Arabia, is a startlingly ambitious excursion for a president who dislikes travel and has displayed a shaky grasp of foreign affairs.

This is the president's first global trip, but Ivanka Trump made a brief trip to Germany in April to appear on a panel at a conference dedicated to helping women in business. You know, there's precedent for this. President Obama traveled overseas a lot in his a year ago in office, and he was repeatedly, nearly exclusively, asked about the presidential campaign and then-candidate Donald Trump. There's really no escape from domestic politics.

On Sunday, the USA president will join Saudi King Salman and other Muslim leaders for the summit that aims to combat extremism and promote moderation, Jubeir said. So it's possible that this first leg of his trip could provide something of a reprieve.

Abrams from the CFR also pointed out how comforting a trip to friendly Saudi Arabia must be for Trump as he faces several controversies at home. What point is the administration trying to make here? His advisers say he wanted to visit these three major religious centers to deliver a message of unity in the fight against terrorism.

"He strongly believes that it is the strength of the faith of people in these religions that will stand up and ultimately be victorious over these forces of terrorism", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said.

Gunfire heard in Ivory Coast cities
In a statement on Sunday, Gen Touré said that numerous mutinous soldiers had listened to earlier calls for them to stand down. Residents said they heard shots being exchanged from early in the morning, describing the gunfire as intense.

It saw deputy crown prince Mohammad bin Salman hail Mr Trump as a "true friend of Muslims" and launch a defence of the attempted travel ban, claiming it targeted "terrorists" rather than the religion of Islam itself. This is a battle about good and evil.

Trump's delivery of a speech on Islam before dozens of Muslim leaders gathered in the Saudi capital could prove a far more delicate exercise, however, given the tensions sparked by his travel ban targeting several Muslim-majority nations - now stuck in the USA courts.

World leaders, however, are less likely to be interested in the details of Trump's political woes than they are keen to gauge the impact of his "America First" policies on their nations, regions and alliances.

Referring to ISIL and al-Qaeda, he said: "Saudi Arabia agrees with the USA administration's view in relation to the role of the United States in the world and in relation to uprooting terrorism". So it will be very interesting to see how he tries to cross that divide. What are we expecting at those events?

Among the invitees is al-Bashir of Sudan, although it remains unclear whether he will attend or, if he does, whether he will meet Trump. The European countries are going to push him to say, hey, we're not getting the credit that we deserve for all that we're doing. One symbolic way they'll do that is by unveiling an "Article 5" memorial.

The US president, who presents himself as a deal-maker, also aims to close an arms sale while in Saudi Arabia.
