President Trump asked Muslim nations to join with him in combatting the threat of Islamic extremism.
President Trump, speaking to Muslim nations at a summit in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, called for their meeting to be the “beginning of the end” for terrorists around the world.
Trump emphasized what he described as “a tragedy of epic proportions,” the millions of Muslims who have suffered under the yoke of terrorism.
“Young Muslim boys and girls should be able to grow up free from fear, safe from violence, and innocent of hatred,” Trump said.
“With God’s help, this summit will mark the beginning of the end for those who practice terror and spread its vile creed.”
The president referenced terrorist attacks that had occurred in countries across the world, but highlighted the suffering that the Muslim world had specifically endured.
“In sheer numbers, the deadliest toll has been exacted on the innocent people of Arab, Muslim, and Middle Eastern nations,” Trump said. “They have borne the brunt of the killings and the worst of the destruction in this wave of fanatical violence.”
The president’s remarks were a departure from his previously combative rhetoric toward the Muslim world.
