President Donald Trump's speech in Saudi Arabia was "bold and courageous," according to British TV personality Piers Morgan, writing Monday in The Daily Mail.

In his Sunday speech, Trump urged Middle East countries to take action.

"A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and extremists. Drive. Them. Out. Drive them out of your places of worship. Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your holy land, and drive them out of this earth," the president said.

In response, Morgan wrote, "Whatever you think of Trump, and he is currently right up there with the most divisive people in history, this was a stunningly bold and courageous thing to do."

Trump could have delivered a speech in a friendly country, but instead chose to visit Saudi Arabia, Morgan noted.

"It was an extraordinary moment to watch the President of the United States . . . let his audience have it right between the eyes about their responsibility for tackling terror groups like ISIS," Morgan said.

Morgan noted that Trump called on people of all faiths to combat the threat, and said the president made it clear he does not hate Muslims.

"He hates Muslim terrorists. Or, rather, those members of groups like ISIS who choose to hijack and twist the faith of Islam and its true meaning for their own nefarious, barbaric gain."

The president's appearances in Saudi Arabia and Israel show that Trump is capable of being a good president, Morgan said.

"Trump has shown that when he exercises self-control and plays to his strengths, he's not just up to the job of president, he has the potential to be a genuinely transformative one."

While Morgan has praised Trump before, he has also been critical of the president's actions. "The President Trump I saw whining away on Wednesday about how mean everyone's being to him was a pitiful parody of Candidate Trump," Morgan said Friday in a Daily Mail opinion piece.
