President Donald Trump has embarked on his first foreign trip. While traveling to Saudi Arabia, Israel, and The Vatican, Trump has met with world leaders from Iran, Israel, and the Catholic Church. Trump’s trip has provided the most successful days of his presidency to date. Count Dr. James Dobson, founder and president of Family Talk, among his biggest fans. He has released a statement praising the new president.
Dobson wrote, “By speaking truthfully about Iran, by naming terror what it is and by calling upon Islamic nations to do more than they have in the fight against extremism, President Trump has taken a bold and refreshing stance, one that lays the groundwork for something altogether new in the Middle East – a coalition of nations finally ready to take a stand for peace.”
Dr. David Jeremiah, a pastor and Bible teacher, agrees. The New York Times bestselling author said, “In Saudi Arabia and in Israel, President Trump has laid the groundwork for a broad and unified coalition throughout the Middle East.”
Add Franklin Graham as one of Trump’s supporters. “The president’s speech to leaders of the Muslim world earlier today was great,” he wrote. “It was extremely diplomatic yet strong, direct, and honest.” Graham went on to praise Trump for taking direct aim at Islamic extremism, concluding, “He was not timid in talking about confronting the crisis of Islamic extremism and the Islamists and Islamic terror of all kinds.”
Typically, presidents take their first foreign trips to Mexico or Canada. But predictably, this president did it his way. And for this trip, at least, his way seems to be working.
