President Donald Trump says the first day of his maiden international trip has been "tremendous."
Trump was largely kept away from reporters during a busy day of meetings and ceremonies in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. But late in the day, he said deals the U.S. government and private sector reached would lead to "tremendous investments" in the United States.
He says the deals will also create "jobs, jobs, jobs."
Trump has agreed to a defense cooperation deal with the Saudis, pledging $110 billion effective immediately and up to $350 billion over 10 years. There are some private sector agreements, too.
The military package includes tanks, combat ships, missile defense systems, radar and communications, and cybersecurity technology.
