President Donald Trump will leave the United States Friday for his first overseas trip as president.

His trip begins Friday with a stop in Saudi Arabia, followed by planned visits to Israel and the Vatican. Trump will later attend the 28th NATO summit in Brussels, Belgium, and the 43rd G7 summit in Taormina, Italy.

Trump will arrive in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where there will be an arrival ceremony, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster said at a news conference Tuesday.

The president will also attend "a signing ceremony of several agreements that will further solidify U.S.-Saudi security and economic cooperation." The next day, Trump will meet with leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council, McMaster said.

In Israel, Trump will meet with Israel President Reuven Rivlin in Jerusalem and plans to lay a wreath at Yad Vashem, a Holocaust memorial. Trump is also expected to give remarks at the Israeli Museum before later meeting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Trump will meet Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem the next morning and "convey his administration's eagerness to facilitate an agreement that ends the [Israeli/Palestinian] conflict," McMaster said.

The next day, Trump is going to have a meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican, and will follow that by delivering remarks at the unveiling of a NATO memorial and will reaffirm the United States' commitment to NATO, McMaster said.

Trump is expected to then travel to the 43rd G7 summit, which will be held May 26-27 in Taormina on the island of Sicily. In the meetings, he'll "press America's economic agenda and call for greater security cooperation," McMaster said.
