U.S. President Donald Trump, in the first stop of his maiden trip abroad, received a regal welcome Saturday in Saudi Arabia.
After his meeting with King Salman and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's meeting with his Saudi counterpart, the American delegation joined their hosts for a traditional male-only sword dance before a state dinner in Trump's honor.

Swaying side to side, the president stood shoulder to shoulder with Saudis for the traditional dance, which includes drumming and singing outside the King Abdulaziz Historical Center where First Lady Melania Trump, his son-in law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka will join Trump to dine with the Saudi king and other senior Saudi royals.
The footage, which also includes shots of Stephen Bannon, who does not seem to join in the dance, might be disturbing to some. In additional footage aired, Trump and Tillerson can be seen doing some fancy footwork with U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur L. Ross.
