Saudi Arabia practices a strict form of Islamic law that prohibits alcohol and separates unrelated men and women in public.

The Associated Press on Thursday reported that Keith’s performance is part of Saudi Arabia’s efforts to impress Trump during his first overseas trip as president.

Trump will visit Saudi Arabia on Saturday and Sunday before traveling on to Israel, the Vatican and eventually Belgium for a NATO summit.

The AP also reported that Fox News's Bret Baier is set to address the same Twitter forum as Trump during his visit.
