Christiane Amanpour on Trump's First Trip Abroad

Christiane Amanpour on Trump's First Trip Abroad

Christiane Amanpour, chief international correspondent for CNN, looks ahead to Trump first foreign trip on Friday where he is scheduled to visit Saudi Arabia, Israel and Rome. All allied countries she expects a warm reception, especially in Saudi Arabia where they “will roll out a red carpet the likes of which you’ve never seen.”
“I'm sure there are different moods between politicians in Israel and those in National Intelligence,” Christiane says regarding the reaction to President Trump reportedly sharing Israeli intelligence to Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting last week.  She predicts it is going to be more difficult for Israeli allies to President Trump “to be as forth coming and as supportive as they would have otherwise been.” 
As for Trump’s visit to Rome, per the Pope’s request it will “be a short meeting.”
