Guests: Rukmini Callimachi, Ali Al-Ahmend, Laura Rozen
President Trump wrapped up his tour of the Middle East earlier this week in Israel, following a warm welcome in Saudi Arabia. Appearing alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump made clear that his administration will take a harder line against Israeli and Saudi foe, Iran. Today, we’ll talk about Trump’s visit to the area, how it was received by Middle-Eastern nations, and what it means for international counterterrorism efforts. We’re joined by ALI AL-AHMED, director of the Institute for Gulf Affairs, and by LAURA ROZEN, diplomatic correspondent for Al-Monitor. But first, Marty talks with RUKMINI CALLIMACHI, correspondent for The New York Times, about the terrorist attack in Manchester and ISIS’ claim of responsibility.
