Trump Mentions ‘Islamic Terror’ During Speech in Saudi Arabia

President Trump referred to "Islamic terror" during his speech to the Muslim world in Saudi Arabia on Sunday.

"There's still much work to be done," he said. "That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamic extremism and the Islamists and Islamic terror of all kinds."

That comment was a departure from his prepared remarks. They read, "That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires."

During his speech, Trump did not mention "radical Islamic terrorism," a phrase that he chastised President Obama for not using when he was in office.
