Washington Post: Trump summons Muslim nations to confront ‘Islamic terror of all kinds’

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — President Trump delivered a forceful address here Sunday summoning the Muslim world to confront “the crisis of Islamic extremism” as he seeks to present a united front against global terrorism.

This is a battle between good and evil.”
