On Saturday 20th May 2017, Trump made his first official visit as President of the United States. His first stop was to Saudi Arabia. King Salman gave Trump a remarkably warm greeting, meeting him at the steps of Air Force One on arrival, shaking the hand of Trump’s wife, Melania, riding with Trump in his limousine and spending most of the day with him. See below 20 pictures from his trip.
