Saudi King Destroys Tradition to Greet Melania Trump

Saudi Arabia welcomed President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump and their entourage Saturday.


As reported by The Washington Post, “Trump, his wife, Melania, and an entourage including virtually his entire senior White House staff and much of his Cabinet, were serenaded by military bands, treated to a flyover of Saudi jets, feted in opulent palaces and given the undivided attention of King Salman.”

The king appeared at the airport in Riyadh to welcome the Trumps, and cast custom to the winds as he did so.

As Melania Trump set foot on Saudi soil, the king shook her hand, a gesture that shattered Muslim traditions in which men do not shake the hands of women.

The act was not unnoticed.

“As usual, the mainstream media is falling all over themselves to report the best criticisms they can come up with. Funny enough, the widespread obsession with critiquing the president has the media missing the real story on this one,” wrote Mary Kate Knorr on Young Conservatives.

“The Saudi Arabian King shook Melania’s hand. The Quran forbids Muslim men from shaking hands with women. And Muslims are kinda pissed about it,” she added.

Melania and Ivanka Trump did make a concession to Muslim dress codes and wore clothes that almost covered them entirely. Melania Trump wore a sleeved black robe top with pants and a gold belt while Ivanka Trump wore a black-and-white dress with long sleeves.
