President Trump took his first presidential trip overseas near the end of May. Assistant Professor of Integrated Studies at UVU, Gregory Jackson, joined Good Morning Utah to review. He visited Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Vatican, and Europe over the course of nine days. Trump’s trip was met with mostly local praise, including his speech on countering extremism in Saudi Arabia and his visit to the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
A massive arms deal with Saudi Arabia was announced as part of the visit. Trump’s visit to Israel lasted only 27 hours and the President focused on his hope to bring peace between Israel and Palestine.
