May 20, 2017, "Trump tweet projected on billboard in Saudi capital," The Hill, Brandon Carter


"A tweet of President Trump’s is being displayed on a billboard in downtown Riyadh, Saudi Arabia during Trump’s visit to the country.

A Bloomberg TV reporter tweeted a photo of the billboard in Riyadh.

The tweet being displayed was Trump’s first tweet sent during his trip to Saudi Arabia.

Trump’s first day in Saudi Arabia has been a busy beginning to his nine-day trip to five countries. Leaders of the two countries signed a $110 billion dollar arms deal that would see the U.S. selling Saudi Arabia tanks, helicopters and a THAAD antimissile system. 

“Hundreds of billions of dollars of investments into the United States and jobs, jobs, jobs,” Trump said after signing the deal. "That was a tremendous day. Tremendous investments in the United States.

Saudi Arabia has pulled out all the stops for Trump’s visit to the country, planning a concert from country singer Toby Keith and holding a conference Sunday where Trump will deliver a major speech on Islam."
