Donald John Trump, Sr. (born June 14, 1946) is the 45th US president. Before the 2016 election, he is an American business magnate, investor, television personality and author. He is the chairman and president of The Trump Organization and the founder of Trump Entertainment Resorts. Trump's extravagant lifestyle, outspoken manner, and role on the NBC reality show The Apprentice have made him a well-known celebrity who was No. 17 on the 2011 Forbes Celebrity 100 list.

Considered one of best known real estate entrepreneurs in the United States, Trump is the son of Fred Trump, a wealthy New York City real-estate developer. He worked for his father's firm, Elizabeth Trump & Son, while attending the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and in 1968 officially joined the company. He was given control of the company in 1971 and renamed it The Trump Organization.

In 2010, Trump expressed an interest in becoming a candidate for President of the United States in the 2012 election, though in May 2011, he announced he would not be a candidate. Trump was a featured speaker at the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). In 2013, Trump spent over $1 million to research a possible run for president of the United States in 2016.

Donald Trump said the struggle against violent extremism was a “battle between good and evil” as he urged countries in the Middle East to combat radicalisation.

In the grand King Abdulaziz Conference Centre, with crystal chandeliers and gold-rimmed side tables laden with snacks and sterling silver pens, leaders of 50 Arab and Islamic nations listened to Mr Trump’s first official speech to leaders abroad since his inauguration.

Unlike his predecessor in Cairo in 2009, Mr Trump did not issue the traditional greeting of “As-salamu alaykum”, but insisted he was there to “deliver a message of friendship, hope and love”.

Ivanka Trump said that Saudi Arabia has made "very encouraging" progress in empowering women, even though women cannot drive and must escorted everywhere by a male relative.   

"Saudi Arabia's progress, especially in recent years, is very encouraging," The US president's eldest daughter told a group of Saudi women she met in the country's capital Riyadh, while accompanying her father on a visit to the ultra-conservative Muslim kingdom.

But Ms Trump admitted there was "still a lot of work to be done and freedoms and opportunities to continue to fight for."

She went onto suggested that it was culture, not religion, holding them back.

President Trump signed a $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia on Saturday, the initial day of his first foreign trip since taking office.

"That was a tremendous day. Tremendous investments in the United States," Trump said. "Hundreds of billions of dollars of investments into the United States and jobs, jobs, jobs," he said.

The agreement commits Saudi Arabia to buying military equipment from the U.S. and to hiring American companies to build such equipment in Saudi Arabia, according to Gary Cohn, the president's chief economic adviser. The deal includes tanks and helicopters for border security, ships for coastal security, intelligence-gathering aircraft, a missile-defense radar system and cybersecurity tools, according to the State Department.

In a joint press appearance on Saturday with the Saudi foreign minister, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson praised the pact as a "historic moment in U.S.-Saudi relations." He also expressed an openness to talks with Iran.

“I’ve never shut off the phone to anyone that wants to talk or have a productive conversation,” he said. “At this point, I have no plans to call my counterpart in Iran, although in all likelihood we will talk at the right time.”

Tillerson said the pact sends a "very strong message to our common enemies" on trying to disrupt "violent extremist messaging" and "financing of terrorism." He also said the deal "lowers the cost to the American people of providing security in this region."

The Trump administration has been working to finalize the deal over the past several months. White House press secretary Sean Spicer called the deal "huge news for U.S. companies and American workers who will benefit" in a tweet on Saturday morning.

Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner personally called the president of Lockheed Martin, a major supplier of U.S. military equipment, in order to negotiate a lower price for the radar system, according to the New York Times.

"This package of defense equipment and services supports the long-term security of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region in the face of malign Iranian influence and Iranian related threats. Additionally, it bolsters the Kingdom's ability to provide for its own security and continue contributing to counterterrorism operations across the region, reducing the burden on U.S. military forces," the State Department said in a statement.

A White House official added that in addition to demonstrating the U.S. commitment to Saudi Arabia "and our Gulf partners," it also expands "opportunities for American companies in the region, and supporting tens of thousands of new jobs in the U.S. defense industrial base."

Lockheed Martin President Marillyn Hewson praised the deal as one that will bolster the relationship between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia and "strengthen the cause of peace in the region."

“At Lockheed Martin, we are proud to be part of this historic announcement that will strengthen the relationship between the United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia," Hewson said in a statement. "We are especially proud of how our broad portfolio of advanced global security products and technologies will enhance national security in Saudi Arabia, strengthen the cause of peace in the region, and provide the foundation for job creation and economic prosperity in the U.S. and in the Kingdom."

The arms deal includes military sales to Saudi Arabia of $110 billion immediately and $350 billion total over the next decade, according to a White House official. The two countries also agreed to a joint vision statement, private-sector agreements and defense cooperation agreements.

Trump's first overseas trip since the election also includes planned stops at the Vatican and Israel.

The trip comes as controversy swirls in the U.S. around the investigation into potential collusion between Trump campaign associates and the Russian government, which could distract from the president's diplomatic mission.

In response to a question about reports that a current White House official is caught up in the investigation, Tillerson said "I do not have any information or knowledge regarding the person of interest."

Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, an assistant to her father who is accompanying him on his trip, also did not cover her head.

Under the kingdom’s strict dress code for women, most female visitors are required to wear a loose black robe, known as an abaya, in public. Most women in Saudi Arabia also cover their hair and face with a veil known as the niqab. But covering one’s head is not required for foreigners.

Nevertheless, the issue had potential to cause embarrassment for Trump, whose long trail of Twitter messages often comes back to haunt him. Two years ago, he tweeted his displeasure over Michelle Obama’s decision to appear bare-headed in the kingdom.

“Many people are saying it was wonderful that Mrs Obama refused to wear a scarf in Saudi Arabia, but they were insulted. We have enuf enemies,” he tweeted, using a short-hand spelling for “enough”.

Last summer, a message was posted to Trump's Facebook page that said Saudi Arabia wants “women as slaves and to kill gays.”

Later, during a presidential debate, Trump suggested that the Saudis were “people that push gays off buildings” and “kill women and treat women horribly.”

Good luck in Saudi Arabia, Mr. Trump.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has appointed former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III as special counsel to oversee the FBI's investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

Rosenstein in a statement that “it is in the public interest for me to exercise my authority and appoint a Special Counsel to assume responsibility for this matter. My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted. I have made no such determination. What I have determined is that based upon the unique circumstances, the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command.”

The appointment is not a true independent counsel investigation, as some have called for, but instead an extra layer of decision making overseeing the FBI investigation.

Mueller, 72, served as director of the FBI from 2001 to 2013. Although nominated by George W. Bush, he was asked to stay on for another 2 years after his 10 year term ended by President Obama. He's well liked and respected on both sides of the aisle, and news of his appointment as special counsel has been well received.

Mueller also spent 12 years in United States Attorney offices, and as a partner in various law firms. During the Vietnam war he led a rifle platoon during the Vietnam War, receiving the Bronze Star, two Commendation Medals, and the Purple Heart.
