Trump in Saudi says Muslim world must ‘drive out’ extremists

In what many may see as a┬áchange from┬áhis campaign’s anti-Muslim rhetoric President Trump has spoken of friendship, hope and love to the leaders of over 50 Muslim-majority countries. Speaking in the Saudi capital Riyadh he said “we must practice tolerance and respect for one another”.

But he also called on them to to take the lead in combating radicalisation and extremist groups, “drive them out of this Earth”. We have reaction and hear from the American political strategist and Trump backer Roger Stone who has blasted the President for meeting and accepting an award from the Saudis.
