Trump visited Saudi Arabia as the primary stop for his first overseas trip as POTUS. Here are some of the odd details from his full day of activities:

  • A photo of Trump was projected onto the Ritz Carlton hotel at night, where Trump was staying.
  • There were billboards with his face on them and American flags lining the streets from the airport to the Ritz Carlton hotel.
  • Saudi Arabia's King Salman personally greeted Trump at the airport when he landed — that never happened with Obama.
  • After eating a multi-course lunch, Jared Kushner greeted National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster with a high-five.
  • Gary Cohn made his way to reporters before a bilateral meeting to assure them it was all going "really well."
  • Trump barely slept on the plane there because he was working on the various drafts of his Islam speech, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said, per Politico.

Leopoldo López, a former political prisoner and prominent Venezuelan opposition leader, has left the country, his Popular Will party confirmed in a statement Saturday.

Why it matters: He's been an influential force in the push to oust President Nicolás Maduro's regime and a mentor to opposition leader Juan Guaidó. He'd been in the Spanish ambassador's Caracas residence since escaping house arrest in April 2019 following a failed military uprising.

Campaigning for Joe Biden at a car rally in Miami on Saturday, Barack Obama railed against President Trump's response to the coronavirus pandemic, saying "the rest of us have to live with the consequences of what he's done."

Driving the news: With less than two weeks before the election, the Biden campaign is drawing on the former president's popularity with Democrats to drive turnout and motivate voters.
