White House Announces President Trump Foreign Travel Schedule…

Against the backdrop of President Trump assembling the mid-east alliance group, and with the previous diplomatic outline of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in mind, the travel schedule is not necessarily a surprise.

WHITE HOUSE – President Trump has accepted the invitation of King Salman bin Abd Al-Aziz, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, to visit the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia later this month. The visit will reaffirm the strong partnership between the United States and Saudi Arabia and allow the leaders to discuss issues of strategic concern, including efforts to defeat terrorist groups and discredit radical ideologies.

President Trump has also accepted the invitation of President Reuven Rivlin and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to visit Israel, where he will further strengthen the United States-Israel partnership. The leaders will discuss a range of regional issues, including the need to counter the threats posed by Iran and its proxies, and by ISIS and other terrorist groups. They will also discuss ways to advance a genuine and lasting peace between the Israelis and Palestinians.

President Trump has also accepted the invitation of President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority to meet with him to discuss ways to advance peace between the Israelis and Palestinians, as well as efforts to unlock the potential of the Palestinian economy.

Traveling next to Italy, President Trump will meet with His Holiness Pope Francis at the Vatican to discuss cooperation between the United States and religious communities in areas of joint concern. He will also meet, in Rome, with President Mattarella of Italy to discuss multilateral cooperation and bilateral relations between the United States and Italy. President Trump will later participate in the G-7 Summit in Taormina hosted by the Italian President of the Council of Ministers Gentiloni.

From Rome, the President will continue on to previously announced visits to Brussels for the NATO summit and meetings with EU and Belgian leaders, and to Sicily for the G7 meeting.  (link)

    He’s meeting at the sites of the 3 major Book religions:Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. The symbolic meaning of this alone is enormous.

    In addition, all of these people have some role to play in achieving piece and ending terrorism.

    I am very impressed.

      I fully understand all that about Islam. The fact is, nothing can be done until there is reform within the religion. Why don’t you wait and see what is happening?

      We have been at war for 15 years. If the Saudis have ideas on how to change things, why not listen? Maybe they will take up more of the fighting, maybe they will relax their strictures on women, maybe things can change for the better.

      I remain hopeful.

      Putin is important too. Russia belongs to the most ancient Christian Church. Rome separated from what’s now called the Eastern Orthodox Church after 1400 years to form a very different, Westernized Christianity. Russia has historically considered itself to be the third and final Rome, Constantinople was the 2nd, which means they have a sacred duty to protect every Christian in the world, but the ME and Egyptian are especially dear because these are Orthodox Christian areas. Putin always wears the baptismal cross his mom gave him. He never takes it off. Putin has solid relationships with the same players we do except we have the Saudis and he has Iran. Putin and Trump need to unite. The schism between Eastern and Western Christianity needs to heal.

      The allah deity has nothing to do with the God of the Bible. Those living in pre-Islamic Arabia, worshipped innumerable gods and goddesses in addition to Allah who was one of the many gods. Among them were Allat, Alluza, Mannat who were goddesses and were looked upon as daughters of Allah along with male gods like Hubal (Baal).

      Muslims do not worship the same god as the Jews and Christians.

      This was Mohammed’s Prime Deception and it has allowed muslims to spill oceans of blood in the name of the allah while hiding behind the robes of God.

      Lies, deceptions, and death right from the start.

    Putting on a concern troll hat here, but I sure hate the thought of PDJT travelling to these places. I know the Secret Service will be all over this, but it worries me anyway. Foreign travel is not safe. I think he is very brave and I admire his willingness to work with other countries. I know this is a necessary part of the job. Since it is National Prayer Day I will say an extra prayer for his safety.

      Sylvia, Minnie, Claygate & friends,

      Taormina is next to the US Naval Station of Sigonella, Sicily. It should be an excellent and very safe place for the President to land. Here is some text about it:

      “The Naval Air Station Sigonella has the best claim to be hub of U.S. naval air operations in the Mediterranean. The base command is landlord to more than 40 other U.S. units. Among these are a rotating P-3C patrol squadron; Naval Computer & Telecommunications; and a U.S. Naval Hospital. The hospital was built in 1992. Sigonella is home to more than 4,000 troops, civilian personnel, and family members.”

      • RC says:

        Further to my 12:32 am response above:

        “Among the aircraft that fly from Sigonella are U.S. Air Force C-130, C-17 and C-5 airlifters, KC-135 and KC-10 tankers and U.S. Navy P-3 Orions, C-2 Greyhounds and C-9B Skytrain IIs and C-40A Clippers, and Italian Air Force Breguet Br.1150 Atlantics. It is one of the most frequently used stops for U.S. airlift aircraft bound from the continental United States to Southwest Asia and the Indian Ocean and has the best claim to be hub of U.S. naval air operations in the Mediterranean. ”

        Flight time from this “hub” to Benghazi is about 45 minutes, but — somehow — our 4,000 troops and multiple planes were overlooked by the Pentagon as a rescue resource during the 9-hour siege of our consulate on September 11, 2011.

    I worry about the security risks for our president, but his duties to engage the rest of the world leaders to promote stability, security, peace, and fair trades will require his visits as part of the art of the deals. Somehow, the God Almighty and his guardian angels will keep watch and protect our president as he is traveling abroad to promote our good will instead of apologizing for something that we have not done to anybody in the rest of the world.

    I have thought long and hard about what Donald J Trump has to gain from being President. From what I see, it’s like tanking on an impossible challenge and making it happen. Maybe that’s it. But I believe in all my heart that it is really to give back to this country all that was give to him. And he knows first hand how corrupt D.C. Is from his private business dealings,

        You are pulling at some interesting threads here: what inspires this love? While I feel it is inate in his character, as a consequence of his many blessings and opportunities, there are other influences.

        As you pointed out, his wife is an immigrant unabashedly in love with her new country. His mother was a Scottish immigrant herself, coming from crushing poverty. There had to have been some remarkable stories and experiences to influence his remarkable faith in and passion for our Nation and her people.

        What wonderful tales shall be written of this Great man and his works in these corrupt and troubled times. Perhaps they shall be sung in Gaelic?

      You are so correct, prayers are very much in order during his voyage. His Presidency’s whirlwind of activity, meeting leader after leader and sending his Veep and Sec State on Epic and substantial voyages, makes it easy to forget he has yet to venture abroad as President.

      His own itinerary is epic in scale, and scope, and I pray for his success as much as his safety: I need to redouble that. I never thought I’d love a President again, especially one with the Hand of God upon him. It’s amazing, we are so blessed.

      While we are at it, pray for Marine! France has her own date with Destiny Sunday. That wretch Macron just filed a libel suit against her over words said in the final debate, words that only a malicious fool could regard as libelous. France needs Marine as we do our Lion.

    You would think that with innumerable unemployed young men and untold millions in charity (foreign aid) from the U.S. and elsewhere the “Palestinian” economy would have taken off like a rocket long ago. Any speculation as to why it never has? Or is it just too obvious?

    • Maquis says:

      That charity is crippling the “Palestinians.” They are also discouraged from becoming self-sufficient both in order to maintain the charity, and because being a slothful indolent cesspool of hatred for the Israelis is their principal charter. They are intended to be festering sores on Israel’s flanks, producing the murderous people we see today. That plan was so successful that no Muslim country will take the Palestinians in. They are a ceaselessly contentious people that disturb the peace wherever they go.

      Besides, their plight “is Israel’s fault,” so why lift their own hands to improve their state of affairs?

      Remember when Israel gave up Gaza, already a profitable producer of agriculture year-round with extensive greenhouses? The moment the Israelis left, the Poor Poor Pitiful Pals destroyed it all, looting bits and pieces, rendering it useless. No effort has been made to restore those. No effort was ever made to protect them and use them to the benefit of their people to begin with.

      They are eager to destroy, to blame and complain, their only industry that drives them is preparing to destroy and kidnap Israelis. Remember the numerous tunnels found during the most recent Israeli-Hamas engagement?

      The ones leading to the courtyards of villages and kindergartens, with ladder equipped shafts leading upwards, leaving only enough soil to conceal their spider holes from which they were to slill, carrying off children and other victims? With hostage equipment at the base of these shafts, sedatitves in pre-filled syringes, handcuffs and ropes etc? With motorcycles equipped to race their victims to prisons in bunkers built under hospitals?

      For years their ceaseless demands for concrete were diverted from genuine construction into the building of modest sized panels and arches to enable rapid and extensive tunnel building.

      When the World stops coddling the “Palestinians” and feeds them no more, they may attempt to make something of themselves. At least, perhaps, feeding their own children something other than hatred.
