Amnesty International said the "glaring absence of human rights from Trump's agenda" in talks with Gulf Arab rulers will only embolden further violations against critics, peaceful dissidents and human rights defenders. "We are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship", he said. "Instead, we are here to offer partnership - based on shared interests and values".
This is Donald Trump's first overseas visit and his speech was the highlight of his two-day visit.
For Trump, the visit has been a welcome escape from the crush of controversies that have consumed his administration in recent weeks.
During his speech at the Arab-Islamic-US summit, Trump acknowledged that India was a victim of terrorism and asked countries to ensure that terror groups don't find sanctuaries on their soil. "The stories of Saudi women, such as yourselves, catalyzing change, inspire me to believe in the possibility of global women's empowerment", said Ivanka. More importantly, President Trump spoke directly of "the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires".

Making no mention of human rights concerns, the Trump administration framed the massive military deal Saturday as an opportunity to create potentially tens of thousands of new jobs in the USA, adding that it would also reduce the burden on US military forces by bolstering the kingdom's ability to provide for its own security. There were no promises of new financial investment or announcements of increased USA military presence in the region. "Drive them out", Trump said.
In short, an American president stood on holy Islamic ground and called on 50 Islamic leaders to fight against Islamic terrorism.
Zarif also criticised Trump's arms deal and other investments with Saudi Arabia worth hundreds of billions of dollars.
Although Israel also sees Iran as a threat to its security, it has a military advantage over the Arab states and has always been concerned about arms sales to them that could possibly narrow the margin separating them.
Soon after Trump embarked on his trip on Friday, he was hit with more accusations that, with Comey's firing on 9 May, he was trying to squelch a federal investigation into his campaign's ties with Russian Federation past year. The Kuwaiti leader referred to Mr. Trump as "my brother".
He praised Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, telling him: "You have done a tremendous job under trying circumstances".
It was not clear if the $110 billion defense deal was included in that sum, or is separate, as Zarif's calculation suggests.
Foreign Minister Zarif responded to the remarks by reminding Trump that questions continue to swirl about the role that members of the Saudi monarchy played in the 2001 attacks. "Love your shoes. Boy, those shoes", he said.
Top Saudi economic policy makers, including the finance minister and head of the kingdom's main sovereign wealth fund, described ways in which they planned to attract USA capital and technology.
