WASHINGTON D.C. - (NBC News) President Trump left on his first international trip in office on Friday, leaving behind a storm of controversy surrounding the investigation of his campaign's ties to Russia.
"This is the most important trip that a president has taken in a long time," said Ambassador James Jeffrey, a former senior American diplomat. "He has to show - despite what's been going on with Russia that he's in charge."
Meanwhile, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is left to wait on a new permanent director, after Mr. Trump elected not to name a replacement for James Comey, whom he controversially fired from the position.
The president will land in Saudi Arabia on Saturday, marking the first time a sitting president has chosen that country as their first stop in office.
