Trump quickly finds voice on Twitter after returning from foreign trip

And Germany's financial newspaper Handelsblatt dubbed him "Boor-in-Chief". An editorial in Le Monde called him "brutal and heavy-handed".

Trump also made headlines days later, near the end of his trip, when he delayed a photo op at the G7 summit because was too exhausted to walk 700 yards. But on Thursday he declined to restate the US commitment to defend its democratic European allies if they are attacked, as Article 5 of the NATO treaty provides. "ObamaCare is dead - the Republicans will do much better!"

His stops in Riyadh and Europe were stark contrasts with one another, and were sharp breaks with the values that have made America great. This can be seen with a couple of factors, first of which is al-Wahhab's use of the term jahiliyya to vilify a society which he does not consider pure enough, whether they call themselves Muslim or not.

"They think that it is possible that Russian Federation may re-develop those ambitions. Ultimately, they think it's harmless".

"This seems to be the end of an era, one in which the United States led and Europe followed", Daalder said.

Gary D. Cohn, the director of the National Economic Council, compared the atmosphere to a family dinner with his three daughters, in which all those at the table are confident about their views.

That isn't how Europe leaders and most of the continent's media see it. Nevertheless, the leaders were able to agree on NATO's formal membership in the global coalition against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) following the creation of the anti-jihadist front in September 2014 under USA leadership.

His whirlwind foreign trip over, President Donald Trump is facing old and new political and policy challenges at home. "Ireland? He said it took him two-and-a-half years to get a license and that did not give him a very good image of the European Union". "He said his dad is from Germany".

No matter the meetings that appear to go according to plan or the assurances of his advisors who try to act as Trump interpreters, there is no normalizing Trump's foreign policy.

A source at the brief meeting on Thursday between the U.S. president and the EU's two presidents, Jean Claude Juncker and Donald Tusk, of the Commission and Council respectively, described it as polite and businesslike. "The American president did not trouble himself over such consideration with his European allies". The tendency on the part of Merkel and Macron to boost the European Union integration process and endow the European Union with its own defense capabilities might further deepen the transatlantic rift in the face of Brexit and Trump's "America first" mentality. Trump showed support for Netanyahu's initiatives to recalibrate Israel's relationship with its Arab neighbors, as well as for resolving the standoff with the Palestinians.

Trump, on the other hand, seems to see such worldwide organizations as debating societies that are "all talk", when what the world needs now is more action. "The Europeans didn't give him that royal welcome; they didn't treat him like the king of the world", said Volker Perthes, the director of the German Institute for worldwide and Security Affairs.

There were numerous opportunities for satire - an awkward handshake with the French president, wife Melania slapping his hand away, a painful meeting with a solemn Pope, a childish guestbook note at a Holocaust Museum, Trump apparently ignoring his host at the G7 summit, his shoving Montenegro's PM out of the way and a cringeworthy "curtsy" to the King of Saudi Arabia.

In the Middle East, Mr. Trump skirted the hard topics of human rights.

Mr. Trump won praise for his performance in the Middle East, even from critics. Dermer is Israel's ambassador to the United States.

Despite his volte-face on the usefulness of NATO, Trump has been saying for some time that NATO is obsolete. "With it, they can justify overthrowing what many might regard as an Islamic state by essentially denying that it is truly Islamic at all". Nonetheless, Lewandowski has the trust of the president - an advantage that many of Trump's aides lack.

The president has been pressured by G7 leaders to change his attitude on climate change. "People can agree or disagree with them but they certainly feel that being part of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and having a strong North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance where the U.S. is committed to it is important, simply for their existence, and I think they'll be the most frightened about what Mr Trump said or failed to say".
