    Trump spoke yesterday night with King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia, Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, and Emir Tamin bin Hamad Al Thani of Qatar.

    The White House says Trump underscored that unity in the region is critical to accomplishing the Riyadh Summit's goals of defeating terrorism and promoting regional stability.

    Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia and its allies on Monday have decided to extend by 48 hours the deadline for Qatar to accept their list of demands to lift a de facto blockade.
