The president of the Council on Foreign Relations pointed toward Trump’s stern rhetoric on Iran as one of the reasons why the trip was a success.
Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, called President Trump’s first leg of his first foreign trip “very successful” during an interview on Monday.
“The Saudis were determined to make this trip a success, in some ways because he was not Barack Obama. He was a long way towards succeeding,” Haass commented.
Haass continued, “he came out with a very tough line toward Iran, which is exactly what they wanted to hear. And he wasn’t picking on [Saudi Arabia].”
Haass concluded by saying the trip was “very successful” because Trump was tough on Iran and didn’t pick on Saudi leaders.
