Trump’s on a trip. And its first stop has been Saudi Arabia, much to the surprise of many, since the presidential tradition in the United States is that the first international visit is to Mexico (we already intuited that here not) or to Canada.
Perhaps for being the first for Donald Trump, the king of Saudi Arabia, Salman, has wanted to reward the tenant of the White House. Although, perhaps, the chosen motive is not the most in line with reality.
Since Trump has been honored for “his initiative to improve the security and stability of the region and the world” by King Salman of Saudi Arabia.
Yes, no joke.
The award ceremony is a diplomatic ceremony during visits by senior leaders to Saudi Arabia.
