miracle and planned the trip during the 2012 campaign, tell us what happened in saudi arabia. first there is in the middle east great sunni shia split and beyond speaking to these people who were there this saudi arabia, there's nothing he could have sate to them or pleased them more than trying to isolate them from iran because it was a trekt contradiction of what barack obama was trying to do. >> right. it was figuring out if there was a deal to be done with iran, if iran could be a potential partner in the region. that had an effect in the eyes of the sunni gulf countries of which saudi arabia is the most powerle that he was downgrading the relationships and they were deeply uneasy about this. for the president of the united states to come to riyadh and say we're in this together, we're here to isolate iran, we're going to work with the sunni countries and israel and now seeing this big arms teal with
7:08 am
saudi arabia really sends a message about a tilt. you saw the iranian foreign minister tweeting out, lashing out at what president trump had done in saudi arabia. it's a clear sign that the iranians are worried. >> and he hopes that saudi arabia and the other countries will help him with is legal doing some teal with the palestinians. >> right. in other words, if israel is to feel that there's space to get some kind of deal done with the palestinians, they want to know it will include some northerlialization with the relationships and that has never come before and i think the trump administration is trying to push the sunni gulf states in that direction. >> he never mentioned radical islamic terrorism. did that surprise you at all? >> no. look. there's a number of things he says on the campaign and he can rejigger for governing and he had to do it here because he had concessions.

8:01 am
morning to fooind themselves squarely back in front of the firing line of the white house. >> they have two choices. surrender or fight to the death because escape is not a possibility. >> he'll ask about the president and the memos that he's kept now that he's agreed to testify before the senate intelligence committee. >> big move. why the shakeup. >> the president took off for a nine-day overseas trip but the wheeled had barely left the ground when this happened. >> according to white house documents president trump in the oval office said days ago the fbi director days ago that, quote, was a nut job. >> in his defense, i can see where he's coming from. >> announcer: this morning ice "eye opener" at 8:00 is presented by liberty mutual

8:03 am
brought many other parts of the middle east toward israel and you could say that's one of the -- there's a benefit, that would be the benefit because i've seen such a different feeling toward israel from countries that as you know were not feeling so well about israel not so long ago. >> president trump spent the weekend in saudi arabia. in a speech the president urged leaders from dozens of majority muslim countries to fight terrorism. >> susan page is washington's bureau chief. good morning. >> good morning. >> so far how do you assess the president as president versus president as candidate? >> we were thinking maybe it would be a debate between president trump and president obama. it was actually donald trump veas president versus candidate. he talked about ban on muslims. he said this is not a war
8:04 am
between religions a totally different tone. >> it's amazing. the speech writer was steve miller? >> i think he got some revisions. this also reflected the tone of rex tillerson and mcmaster. what tellerson said this morning on the flight to tel aviv is that the president's view on islam continue to evolve. >> which is remarkable to hear a secretary of state describe the president's position as evolving. >> it's something that might be seen as kind of patronizing typically in an administration. but, in fact, that's what we see happen. he's israel. during the campaign he promised to move the embassy to jer use limb. that has not happened. >> big issue in arab countries too. >> exactly. that's why it hasn't happened. >> put it in perspective. that's a song called "had a bad day." they had a bad week. how important is this? >> the first foreign trip is
8:05 am
important for any president but this is especially crucial because he's coming off what i think is most catastrophic week for a president in memory. it's just a week ago today we find out he had talked to russian leaders in the oval office and revealed intelligence from israeli intelligence sources and then we have a series of other things happening including there's a senior official in white house that is a person of interest in this investigation of meddling with the russians. i don't know the answer to that question. >> is there a list of three people they might suspect? >> there might be but it's not enough to say out loud on your show. >> very well said, susan. >> you know what else is remarkable about this trip? no press conference and no tweeting by the president. >> what's most remarkable, the white house sees this as a huge achievement that this trip has stayed on message because the president has answered questions, because he hasn't sent out any of those provocative tweetsle here's the
8:06 am
question. they've done it for three days. can he do it for nine days? >> it's hard. the people around the white house, people in the white house now say the president's been exhausted. >> let's give him the benefit of all the doubts he'd like us to. what has he pliched and what may he plich that will perhaps set in motion some kind of grand bargain? >> it's possible that -- it's not like we've had great success in reaching middle east peace. this is dachbt approach. the president says this is a moment in time where it might be possible to have a fresh start on an israeli/palestinian accord. of course, we all hope that happens. >> it's a better word than reset, doesn't it? >> reset has a history. >> susan page, always good to have you here. thaerng you so much. the fbi wants to know if race played a role of a blackman kelled by a white student. 23-year-old richard collins iii
