Trump was not pleased with the news. For example, after his first national security advisor, Michael Flynn, resigned on February 13 over his conversations with a Russian official, Mr. Trump's approval rating remained steady for a week.
Trump is delivering an address on Islam Sunday in Saudi Arabia.
It is understood most of his key staff, including chief of staff Reince Priebus, advisers Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner, and national security adviser Gen HR McMaster, are travelling with the president. The speech - by a man, who called for a ban on Muslims coming into the United States as a candidate - "is meant to unite the broader Muslim world against common enemies", McMaster added.
Donald Trump embarks on his first trip overseas as president today amid growing controversy at home over his firing of former FBI Director James B. Comey and the special counsel probe of Russian interference and potential connections to Trump aides. As he does, Trump responded, calling Francis' comment "disgraceful" and accusing him of being used as a "pawn" of Mexico.

When it comes to foreign affairs, the stakes are even higher.
"I thought it [Comey firing] would be a bipartisan decision", Trump said, citing Democrats who had called for his ousting.
If allies can't trust the American president, what political capital does he have to tackle thorny global issues, like trade, Mideast peace or relations with the Islamic world?
As a candidate he foreshadowed a homebody presidency - touting himself as the "America First" leader who would shun foreign travel to fix the "carnage" in the US.
The president's lack of temperance and integrity demonstrated this week diminishes confidence in his ability to lead in a turbulent world. Such actions were not enough to bring down the group and the Trump administration says it will do more.
