After trip's final day, Trump to return to tumult at home

President Donald Trump on Saturday said his maiden first trip overseas was a "home run" and he vowed to overcome the threat of terrorism, concluding a grueling five-stop sprint that ended with the promise of an imminent decision on the much-discussed Paris climate accord.

A White House official said Trump was not talking just about the Saudi deals but "benefits to trade from the entire trip from Saudi Arabia to the G7".

"This trip has also been incredible for me as First Lady", Trump said, adding that she would never forget the women and children she met during visits to children's hospitals in Italy and Belgium.

Trump said he had helped forge more worldwide cooperation in the fight against Islamist militants, a threat he said was underscored by a suicide bomber in Manchester, England, and the killing of Coptic Christians in Egypt. "And together we will overcome this threat". The president said he plans to make a decision next week. "We made and saved the U.S. many billions of dollars and millions of jobs", the president said.

Besides reaching a decision on the climate agreement once back in Washington, Trump will also face a new crush of Russia-related controversies.

Some of President Donald Trump's top aides are refusing to address reports that Trump's son-in-law - White House adviser Jared Kushner - and a Russian diplomat may have discussed setting up a secret communications channel between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin. His lawyer said Kushner will cooperate with investigators.

Trump, who during his presidential campaign once called climate change a "hoax", made the announcement on Twitter ahead of the other nations pledging their commitment to the deal at the G-7 Summit in Taormina, Italy. "Money is starting to pour in", Trump said, echoing a tweet earlier Saturday on the subject.

"The president was able to make some of the most awesome deals that have really been made by any administration ever", enthused his economic adviser Gary Cohn.

But Trump is a remarkable man.

The smaller moments of the president's trip were endlessly dissected as well, from first lady Melania Trump's apparent reluctance to hold her husband's hand on occasion to his shoving aside of Montenegro's prime minister to get to the front of a pack of leaders at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation photo opportunity.

Tensions recently escalated between the two countries after the Trump administration imposed new tariffs on softwood lumber from Canada and railed against its pricing of domestic milk to cover more dairy ingredients, which impacts USA dairy producers. "And now we're getting on that very big plane and heading back to Washington". But he also held one-on-one meetings with the leaders of Japan, the United Kingdom and Germany. "Changing the infrastructure of global trade to tilt it back toward the USA would save and create millions". Subscriptions start as low as 25¢ per day.
