Trump believes Saudi Arabia will normalize Israeli ties

WASHINGTON ( HRNW ) – US President Donald Trump said Tuesday he believes Saudi Arabia will follow Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in fully normalizing relations with Israel.

Trump told reporters at the White House that the Kingdom is among several countries he believes are on the verge of opening diplomatic ties with Tel Aviv, saying that after speaking with King Salman, he thinks the country will do so “at the right time.”

“We have many other countries going to be joining us, and they’re going to be joining us soon,” Trump said just hours after Bahrain and the UAE officially signed documents normalizing ties with Israel.

The president further increased the number of nations he says are close to following in the steps of the two Arab Gulf nations “fairly rapidly” after saying earlier Tuesday that it was five or six.

“We’ll have 7 or 8 or 9. We’re going to have a lot of other countries joining us, including the big ones,” he said.
