This took Trump what Ten Days?
Saudi Arabia’s King Salman, in a phone call on Sunday with U.S. President Donald Trump, agreed to support safe zones in Syria and Yemen, a White House statement said.
Trump, during his presidential campaign last year, had called for Gulf states to pay for establishing safe zones to protect Syrian refugees.
A statement after the phone call said the two leaders agreed on the importance of strengthening joint efforts to fight the spread of Islamic State militants.
“The president requested and the King agreed to support safe zones in Syria and Yemen, as well as supporting other ideas to help the many refugees who are displaced by the ongoing conflicts,” the statement said.
This is what you get when you have a president & administration of action vs one of hashtags.
Via the Conservative Treehouse who notes:
This is a jaw-dropping exhibition of the scope of President Trump’s strategic leverage. Remember how Secretary of State Rex Tillerson refused to take the bait from Senator Marco Rubio regarding Saudi Arabia? Put this outcome in the dividend column.
I have an odd feeling the press and protesters will have very little to say about this.
Update: Short Answer Yes.

Can anyone tell me what the Obama Administration and their team of the smartest people in the world have been doing these last 2 years?
Update 2: Don Surber
President Trump and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman agreed on creating a safe zone for Muslim refugees within the Middle East, the New Indian Express (as well as Reuters and Bloomberg) reported.
Conservatives have long asked why America and Europe must take in refugees when their Arab Muslim neighbors have the money to help their fellow Muslims.
Trump is making it so.
I’m amazed that Surber doesn’t have an admin job yet.
