Trump says fight against terror not about religion

Donald Trump has implored Middle Eastern leaders to combat a ‘crisis of Islamic extremism in the region’.

Speaking in Saudi Arabia during his first foreign trip since taking office, the U.S. President said that the fight against terror was a battle between good and evil – not between faiths and civilisations.

He also announced that a counter-terrorism centre is to be set up in the country to help stop extremism across the region.
