Trump traveling to Israel on Monday

The luminescent orb in the viral photo was a ceremonial touch.

Rouhani, a pragmatist who won a new mandate in last week's presidential election, also dismissed a summit Trump attended at the weekend in Saudi Arabia as a "ceremonial (event) that had no political value and will bear no results". "We are not here to lecture - we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship", he said. Some of Trump's critics got imaginative, comparing the photo to a villainous comic book and sci-fi movie themes.

Mr Trump's remarks came in a meeting with dozens of regional leaders who gathered in Riyadh for a summit with the USA president and Saudi King Salman.

He offered a partnership with the defeat terrorist groups such as the Islamic State, but he said they must take the lead to end the bloodshed and violence it is spreading in their own homelands.

The American President, who had said during the election campaign that "Islam hates us" and proposed a ban on the entry of Muslims to the USA, rejected the idea that the fight is a battle between religions even as he promised not to chastise them about human rights violations in their own countries.

Mr Trump offered few indications of whether he planned to shift U.S. policy to better-fight terrorism.

As we saw in Games 1 and 2 when he bullied the Celtics for 38 and 30 points, respectively, he can score at will on them. Heading into the game, James was averaging 34.8 points, 9.0 rebounds and 7.1 assists per game in these playoffs.

"Saudi Arabia's progress, especially in recent years, is very encouraging but there's still a lot of work to be done and freedoms and opportunities to continue to fight for", she said. But he briefly referred to his upcoming meetings with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

"We did not know terrorism and extremism until the Khomeini revolution reared its head", he said.

Klein said his organization was pleased that Trump strongly condemned Iran, that he condemned "ISIS, Hezbollah and Hamas and Iran in the same sentence - for they are all part of the same scourge of Islamist terror". "This agreement will help the Saudi military to take a far greater role in security and operations having to do with security", Trump added. And, most importantly to the delight of Arab leaders, as the White House itself pointed out, Mr Trump was not soft on Iran.

"I think that would be a awful abdication of our global leadership when it comes to advocating for people who are the subject of persecution", Schiff said. We believe you're willing.

Mr Trump has also retreated from a campaign pledge to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, bending to the same diplomatic and security concerns as other presidents who have made similar promises.
