President Trump is in the midst of a two-day stop to Israel as part of a foreign trip that is also taking him to Saudi Arabia, Vatican City, Brussels, and Sicily, according to CNN.
While in Saudi Arabia, Trump made it clear what one of his primary purposes for the trip was, according to NBC News, telling Muslim leaders, "A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and extremists."
Trump’s trip continues to be derided by the mainstream media, with news outlets like the Washington Post already proclaiming in a headline Monday: “Trump's first foreign trip is all downhill from here.”
The opinion piece by columnist Daniel W. Drezner begins sarcastically, “Let’s give it up for President Trump: He hasn’t blown up the world yet on his first overseas trip.”
The criticism hasn’t been lost on Trump, and it’s probably why Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s wife Sara was overheard telling the Trumps something that isn’t going to go over well with the mainstream media in America.
According to the Washington Examiner, she told them, "You know in Israel all the people like us, the media hate us but the people love us. Like you."
President Trump replied, "We have a lot in common. We'll talk about it over dinner."
The Trumps and Netanyahus are scheduled to dine together Monday night, according to the “Today” show.
The allied leaders have enjoyed a close friendship that is in stark contrast to President Obama’s dismissive behavior toward Netanyahu in past years.
