After frequent attacks, Trump seeks to ‘reset’ relationship with Muslim world

I didn’t obstruct FBI's probe into alleged Russian meddling, Trump says

Controversial US President Donald Trump who is presently on a visit to Saudi Arabia is aiming to reset his relationship with the Muslim world after frequently attacking Muslims on the campaign trail last year and trying to ban many from entering the United States.

Trump will attend the Arab Islamic American Summit and according to a senior administration official, his speech which will be delivered at the summit will be to call for unity and the need for Muslims to confront radicalism.

“Whether he would use his signature campaign phrase “radical Islamic terrorism” to describe the threat was unclear. His speech was still being worked on late on Saturday, and some advisers were cautioning him against using the term,” the senior administration official said.
