President Trump during a speech Sunday in Saudi Arabia avoided the term "radical Islamic terrorism," which he often used on the campaign trail.
During the speech to leaders of more than 50 Muslim-majority nations, the president did use terms such as "Islamic extremism, and the Islamists and Islamic terror of all kinds." Trump diverted slightly from his prepared remarks in using "Islamic" rather than "Islamist."
"Of course there is still much work to do," the president said during his speech in Riyadh.
"That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamic extremism, and the Islamists and Islamic terror of all kinds. And it means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews, and the slaughter of Christians."
