Melania Trump makes her global debut as first lady

19 May 2017

Trump will depart Washington on Friday for his first worldwide trip as president, which will include stops in the Middle East and Europe.

The concert will coincide with President Donald Trump's first overseas visit since taking office, the Associated Press reports. The country superstar is headed to Saudi Arabia this weekend to perform during Trump's first official state visit.

Adel al-Jubeir said on Thursday that Trump meeting this weekend will reinforce the "strategic partnership" between Riyadh and Washington in its fight against Islamic extremism.

"I am very excited", the first lady said.

Wisconsin retiree charged in shooting of Amtrak conductor
79-year-old Edward Klein of West Allis appeared in bond court Friday morning, May 19th where bond was set at $1.5 million. He is charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery with a firearm, according to the sheriff's office.

The foreign minister said the visit would also play an important role in improving relations with participating Muslim countries.

The speech is a high-risk, high-reward opportunity, but is hard to get right, said Jonathan Finer, who served as director of policy planning for former secretary of state John Kerry. Though Pope Francis has said he'd "never make a judgment about a person without hearing him out", others on the continent have sharply criticized Trump. Saudi diplomats tried to downplay sources of friction in the relationship, including Trump's anti-Muslim campaign statements, his travel ban from six Muslim countries (not including Saudi Arabia) and a bill passed by Congress over President Obama's veto a year ago that allows victims of terrorism to sue the Saudi government. Trump, whose denunciations of Iran have been welcomed by the Saudis, wants to frame the conflict not as one between the West and Islam, but simply between good and evil, according to his aides.

The kingdom wants Trump to align USA interests with Saudi Arabia's - and is literally counting down the seconds until Trump starts his meetings Saturday.

Foreign leaders are playing a guessing game trying to determine whether Trump's positions will veer in a more radical direction favored by his controversial chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, who's pressed for the dismantlement of the Iran nuclear deal, the end of the One China policy, and the transfer of the US embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

Lingard: Rashford has been "amazing"
It was a mostly even match in front of almost 30,000 fans at Balaidos Stadium, but United had most of the significant chances. Until the goal United's finishing had been poor with Celta keeper Sergio Alvarez thwarting them several times.

While Saudi Arabia's restrictions on freedom and ban on women driving often grab headlines, Trump is not expected to make human rights concerns a centerpiece of his talks with Saudi royals on Saturday.

As a result, Trump will head into his trip, an ambitious first stride across the global stage, pursued by a political maelstrom at home and facing questions from foreign leaders about the viability of his government.

"Is this a first lady that will be called on to be an advocate for U.S. foreign policy now and in the future?" It is also where Fox's Baier is confirmed as a speaker.

The first stop on President Donald Trump's first overseas trip is Saudi Arabia. But, she does have one thing going for her: the Melania mystique.
