Saudis reject Obama's Middle East policies
Most of the Middle East saw Obama's Iran policies as a disaster that put everyone else in peril. They see Trump as someone who understands the danger posed by that policy and is willing to work them to oppose the genocidal urges of Tehran's leaders. Democrats who though Trump would aliente allies have been proved wrong.
President Trump was received warmly in Riyadh by Saudi leaders who appeared to embrace an American leader intent on supporting Sunni Muslim countries.
