Muslim pilgrims circle the Kaaba, Islam’s holiest shrine, at the Grand Mosque in the Muslim holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, in September. Saudi Arabia, President Donald Trump’s first overseas stop, hosts millions of Muslim pilgrims annually at holy sites in Mecca and Medina.

Saudi Arabia is making every effort to dazzle and impress President Donald Trump on his first overseas trip, seizing on the visit to cement itself as a major player on the world stage and shove aside rival Iran.

Trump is the hope of the World, and they know that, they aren't dumb, they just have a shiite religion and a kind of "twisted streak". But they ALL know Trump will be a loyal World partner, and are so glad that snake odumbo is out to pasture. In fact about the only ones who cannot think for themselves or see things clearly are those dim-witted communist hypocrites over here !!

Wowy, perhaps you could be an advisor to trump, your world view, your logic and rationality is so similar to Trump. Maybe you share some of the same jeans- no disparagement meant as to your parents.

As McCain said with his little buddy liberman, them muslims are sure different. I guess SA is or isnt the right kind of muslim holy books copied mostly from other heat stroked desert writers. Anyway, they are muslims and our Orange man will show them he doesnt put up with their ways, No calling them peaceful religiousness primates like W did, wont tolerate them making MT wear non revealing clothes or wear a sand protector for her face, and hope upon hope we will hear a good christian prayer before every meal.

Perhaps orange man, in quieter moments in the gold plated locker rooms can discuss how to grab "you know what" with the leaders [ known to grab a few themselves] . This is what is called sharing like cultures.

wowy, perhaps only a few will see the wisdom of your play on words of their particular sect of the illiterate man in the cave communicating with angels . IN the event of being monitored by muslim death squads, I could be wrong , but I think or believe I overheard all this from the right wingers on these post. Just sayin.

Well folks true those foreign guys are not nearly as dumb as the boys in the turnip truck ,they will play the orange buffoon like a pro bass tournament champion playing a big mouth bass. As a pagan infidel he should wow them muslims ( his pious Corinthians second talk wowed Evangelicals), as a heretic pagan sinner a chance for the Pope to save a soul , but as Trump is a bad godfather movie to go to Sicily fits.

In my conversations with the boss of Bosses, i was told I am Ok, but wowy's screwed [ cant say the other word] .

Anyway an old women in mexico taught me not to believe in that magic and supernatural nonsense. She also taught me to fly.

Anyway part II, just as long as those them there inmans dont continue their horrible, horrible sermons against our not so innocent country, calling us very bad names. Surely trump will bring up the christian discrimination going on over there and here and in Israel.

I do worry about the 200 million dollars a day that Fox without Bill o and ms kelley and Beck and others involved in lawsuits, duly and truthfully fair and balanced reported this little episode is going to costs EWE the taxpayer. WOW THAT IS A LOT OF MONEY, and think there is still the extra money for rump tower and that florida place . Funny , the conservatives seem to have lost their voice as well as their mind.

Yet being optimistic I believe this is a real opportunity for trump to create many business contacts for when he is impeached, retires, or gets beat next time.
