US President Donald Trump arrives in Saudi Arabia in first foreign trip Saturday May 20,2017

US President Donald Trump has arrived in Saudi Arabia on the first leg of his first foreign trip since taking office, in a crucial test abroad as political scandals mount at home

In a red-carpet airport welcome, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud greeted Trump, his wife Melania and his entourage shortly after they landed in the capital, Riyadh, around 06:50 GMT on Saturday May 20,2017

US President Donald Trump will hold a series of meetings with the king and other Arab and Muslim leaders on Saturday and Sunday, before jetting off to Israel

During the two-day visit to the kingdom, Trump is expected to sign a major weapons deal, give a speech on Islam and discuss the battle against "terrorism" with more than 50 leaders.
It is the first time a US president has chosen Saudi Arabia as the first stop on a maiden trip.
Trump's visit is seen as highly symbolic, as he looks to repair Washington's ties with its closest Arab ally.
