Washington – The three summits held in the capital Riyadh over the past two days – the GCC-US Summit, the Arab-Islamic-American Summit, and the Saudi-US Summit – have resonated widely on the various US media outlets which highlighted the positive outcome of the summits and their impact on further strengthening relations between the Arab and Islamic countries and the United States.

The “Los Angeles Times” said that US President Donald Trump highlighted during his talks with Arab and Islamic leaders the untapped potential of one of the region’s greatest resources, which is youth.

The paper quoted Trump as saying that 65% of its population is under the age of 30, and like all young men and women, they seek great futures to build, great national projects to join, and a place for their families to call home.

According to the paper, while some continue to see Trump as biased against Muslims, he charmed others during the weekend visit with his deal-making and deference to local customs.

The paper hailed the huge trade and military agreements signed between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United States, saying they will contribute to enhancing the strategic partnership between the two countries.

Meanwhile, the “Washington Times” praised Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia, saying that Trump “is leaving a singular mark on the world stage as he takes his first trip abroad as president”.

In a strong start to the journey, Trump inked arms sales and economic investment deals with Saudi Arabia and charted a new course for US anti-terrorism and foreign policy with a speech to leaders from 50 Muslim countries, the paper said.

For its part, “The Times” noted Trump’s softened and measured tone in his speech during the Arab-Islamic-US Summit. The paper commented Trump’s saying that fighting terrorism is not a battle between different faiths, different sects or different civilizations, but it is a battle good and evil.

The “CNN” said that Trump’s speech during the Arab-Islamic-American summit in Riyadh marks his first effort to reach out to the Muslim world.

It said that his speech was aimed at resetting his relationship with the Muslim world, noting that Trump sought to disassociate terrorism from religion.
