Trump Talks with Saudi King Salman, Plan ISIS Strategy, Refugee Safety

Trump’s Muslim Ban is a measure put in place to allow his administration to undo the harm done by Obama and Clinton.

The ban was directly followed by a series of calls and negotiations with the leaders of the Middle East, calls than went very well.

Had the Obama- Clinton plan not failed so miserably there would have been no need for the drastic steps.

This is a real attempt to deal with the major problem of radical Islam, a problem recognized by all including the Muslim leaders of Islamic countries.

US President Donald Trump and the Saudi King, Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, have discussed the so-called ‘safe zones’ in Syria and Yemen during their phone conversation on Sunday, the White House said in a statement.

“The President requested and the King agreed to support safe zones in Syria and Yemen, as well as supporting other ideas to help the many refugees who are displaced by the ongoing conflicts,” the White House said in a statement.

“They also agreed on the importance of rigorously enforcing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran and of addressing Iran’s destabilizing regional activities.”

The Saudi monarch has agreed to support the creation of the zones, which Trump earlier said should be created to protect Syrian refugees, without providing details.

The two leaders also discussed Iran, agreeing there should be strict implementation of Iran’s nuclear deal while also addressing what the statement called “Iran’s destabilizing regional activities.”

King Salman invited Trump to “lead a Middle East effort to defeat terrorism and to help build a new future, economically and socially.”

Trump also spoke with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Muhammad bin Zayid Al Nuhayyan. The two discussed the Islamic State of Iraq & Syria (ISIS) and the crown prince agreed to support safe zones to protect refugees in the Middle East.

Saudi King Salman sent a congratulatory cable to the US President Donald Trump, as he was sworn in, to assume the office of the president.

In the cable, the King expressed, in his own name and on behalf the Saudi people as well as the government, congratulations and wishes for abundant health and happiness to the president and steady progress and prosperity for the friendly people of the US.
