Watching live.

He's speaking plainly and calling a spade a spade. Some of these leaders look distinctly uncomfortable!

Jordan just responded that terrorism is NOT Islamic, after Trump mentioned several times the goal to stamp out Islamic Terrorism.

I don't think Jordan is being very honest about things. Still trying to play the Arab's standard old, tired game of denial.

Trump called out Iran pretty harshly. It'll be interesting to see what kind of fiery response that gets.

Live feed is concluded. I'm sure there will be a lot of articles discussing this. IMO, Trump hit a homerun with his speech and I didn't see any beating around of the bushes.

On another note, it was good to see Melania and Ivanka sitting there dressed as an American woman does, without the black tent wrapped around themselves and scandalously uncovered hair. :thumb:

While there are those in the media trying to minimize or turn the story on its head, so far Trump has done an excellent job on this trip. Been watching the coverage from Israel this morning, I hope he keeps it up. More than that, I hope he brings this persona home:
