Trump briefly joined Saudi King Salman in a traditional male-only sword dance before a state dinner in his honor.
Swaying side to side, the president stood shoulder to shoulder with Saudis for the traditional dance, which includes drumming and singing.
The dance took place 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 menu is to include an array of dishes, including steak and ketchup alongside the lamb and hefty portions of rice.
He was greeted by the Saudi king and a long red carpet upon arrival to the capital, Riyadh, Saturday morning for his first overseas visit in office.
