Donald Trump is making his first presidential trip abroad this week, amid a turbulent witch hunt by democrats back in the states.
While the President is away, we are sure to see a plethora of new angles proposed by the angry leftists in Washington D.C., hoping still to pin some form of treachery on Trump, the Russians, or both. Disgraced FBI Director James Comey will likely testify early next week as well, creating even more fodder for the democratic dunces to mangle.
Meanwhile, in Saudi Arabia, the grandeur and uniqueness that Donald Trump brings to the U.S. presidency has not been lost. As President Trump touched down in the rich Middle Eastern nation, it was immediately apparent that the Saudis have an enormous amount of respect for the newly minted Commander in Chief.
“Trump flew to the capital Riyadh overnight on Air Force One – becoming the only president to make Saudi Arabia, or any majority Muslim country, his first stop overseas as president.
“His arrival following a 6,700-mile flight was met with the pomp usually reserved for the likes of a Papal welcome in South America.
“The president got the red carpet treatment – literally – and some airport workers took off their shoes before manicuring it with brooms in 97-degree heat.
“The Saudi King later presented Trump with the kingdom’s top civilian honor, the gold King Abdulaziz medal, at the royal court.
“There were 30 U.S. flags at the ready at the airport, a tiny fraction of the thousands that line streets and highways between the airport and the city center.
“A 90-person Royal Saudi Air Forces honor guard practiced rifle drills and then stood at attention while Trump and his kingly escort ambled toward the terminal.
“He heard an eight-bugle fanfare, watched a seven-jet flyover trailing red, white and blue smoke. And cannon fire. Lots of cannon fire, which didn’t cease until Trump and King Salman were safely inside.”
While the Trump name may be synonymous with metered opulence in the United States, no one does excess like the Saudis do.
Trump’s long stay in the Middle East is just beginning, but, judging by the results that we have already seen in the U.S. to his policies, there is a great chance that our relationship with the kingdom will take a massive upward turn during the next few days.
