Trump: My Trip Saved US Billions of Dollars, Millions of Jobs

The president was warmly received on his opening stops in Saudi Arabia and Israel, though he has come under more pressure in Europe, particularly over the Paris accord.Trump is wrapping up his first trip overseas as president and returning to the US on Saturday.He could also be drawn into commenting on those unflattering moments and images from the trip that have been picked apart by the global press - Trump shoving his way to the front of the pack at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation; hot-mic moments on the tarmac with Bibi in Tel Aviv; his wife swatting away his hand; calling the Germans "very bad".

"The first lady held her husband's hand as they made their way to Air Force One in Italy on Saturday after addressing USA military personnel at a naval base", the Mail reported.

Trump held no news conferences during the nine-day trip, which allowed him to avoid questions about the Russian Federation investigations.

Meanwhile, the FBI's criminal probe into Russia's election meddling pierced Trump's inner circle for the first time on Thursday.

White House economic adviser Gary Cohn says statements issued after summits like the G-7 are always a "give and take".

He also visited USA troops stationed at the Sigonella Air Base in Italy.

Five stops in nine days- President Trump is headed back to the U.S. Trip has been very successful.

But almost half of that speech was spent recounting his perceived accomplishments, from concluding an arms deal with Saudi Arabia (it had been years in the making) to forcing North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to increase how much they spend on defense (a commitment they agreed to in 2014, under former President Barack Obama).

Earlier in the day, Trump tweeted he will be making a final decision on the climate pact- formally known as the Paris accord next week.

"The U.S.is now paying much more than any other nation and that is not fair to the United States or the United States taxpayer".

The president tweeted Saturday, "I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!"

It is not clear what money Trump was referring to, but Germany has pledged to increase defense spending with the target of reaching 2 percent of GDP.

Trump is meeting with leaders from the G-7 nations in Sicily.

The White House chose to focus on the president's first foreign trip and what Trump called a "truly historic week".

"It signed off on a nine day trip overseas, during which Melania won the hearts of many across the Middle East and Europe", the Mail reported.

G7 leaders announced that they had come to an agreement on establishing further steps to fight terrorism.

Most notably, soon after Trump touched down in Sicily for the final leg of his trip, news surfaced that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is now looking into the role his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner held during the campaign and transition, including his contacts with Russian officials.
