DONALD Trump has arrived in Saudi Arabia on his first foreign visit as President of the United States.

The 70-year-old is well known to enjoy the comforts of home and his Arab hosts have made sure to serve him his favourite meal of steak and ketchup ahead of talks aimed at combating terrorism in the Middle East.

The businessman travelled to Riyadh on a 6,700-mile overnight flight from Washington DC – the first time he has spent a night away from the White House or one of his properties since taking the oath of office.

The 45th president of the US will then travel to Israel and the Vatican before attending summits in Brussels and Sicily on a trip with his wife Melania Trump.

Alongside the First Lady, Trump will be joined by most of his senior staff from the White House who have planned the trip with Saudi Arabian officials.
