US President Donald Trump arrived in Riyadh on Saturday. This was reported by Associated Press.

Saudi Arabia became the first destination in his debut foreign trip as the head of state.

He was met in the airport by the King of Saudi Arabia. Agency notes that Trump is the only American President who chose muslim country for his first foreign visit, and such pick was made partly to show respect toward the region after several months of anti-muslim campaign rhetoric.

Later it was added that Melania Trump's decision not to wear a headscarf upon arrival drew attention on social media.

After spending two days in Riyadh, Trump is to head to Israel, Vatican and Italy. US President will also take part in NATO summit in Brussels and the summit of G7 in Sicily.
