Trump ends nine-day overseas trip with a flourish

Europe "must take its fate into its own hands" faced with a western alliance divided by Brexit and Donald Trump's presidency, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Sunday.

"But we should know that we as Europeans must fight for our future ourselves, for our destiny", she added.

"You have to believe me when I tell you...that the first time any of us ever thought about the issue of putting in a reaffirmation was when we got inquiries about it after the speech", the official told reporters aboard Air Force One.

The G7 summit in Italy on Saturday revealed further divisions between the US and its European partners on various issues, including global trade and climate change.

The chancellor's address illustrates how much Britain and the United States have hurt their worldwide standing in recent months.

The German Chancellor urged the European Union to stick together in the face of new uncertainty stemming from the United States and other challenges.

Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam, gave Trump a chance to square U.S. government policy with the vitriol of his campaign on Islam and terrorism.

The heat is on: President Trump says he will decide this week whether to stick with the landmark Paris climate accord.

But in the United States, President Donald Trump hailed his first foreign trip as a big success.

The clashes dominated conversations in and around the summit after the first day wrapped up Friday, with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, British Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel all singling out, with varying degrees of intensity, the US for getting in the way.

He described a "very robust conversation. a lot of give and take" in discussions that included leaders from Japan, Britain, France, Germany, Canada and Italy. Now, a special counsel has been appointed to look into possible criminal wrongdoing in relation to Russian attempts to affect the 2016 US presidential election.

In Saudi Arabia, Trump called on the leaders of Muslim countries to shoulder more of the weight of the fight against terrorist groups like ISIS - matching his calls on the campaign for Muslim countries to shoulder more of the financial and military burden of the fight against the terrorist group in Iraq and Syria.

President Donald Trump on Saturday said his maiden trip overseas was a "home run" and he vowed to overcome the threat of terrorism, concluding a grueling five-stop sprint that ended with the promise of an imminent decision on the much-discussed Paris climate accord.
