Donald Trump said today (May 21, 2017) the struggle against violent extremism was a "battle between good and evil" as he urged countries in the Middle East to combat radicalization, according to the Independent (British) website.
In Saudi Arabia's grand King Abdulaziz Conference Center, leaders of 50 Arab and Islamic nations listened to Trump's first official speech to leaders abroad since his inauguration.
"This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations," Trump told the Middle East leaders.
"This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it. This is a battle between good and evil."
