President Trump enjoins Kuwait, Arab nations to fight their shared enemies

During a joint press conference, Trump confirmed that the crisis began over several countries supporting the funding of terrorism over the years.

Later Friday, the White House said Trump had spoken separately with the leaders of Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Kuwait's Emir Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah has confirmed that Qatar is ready to meet and discuss the 13 demands made by the four Anti-Terror Quartet countries that broke off ties with Doha months ago. He urged the parties to the dispute - Qatar on one side and Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates on the other - to embrace the emir's initiative.

They said the fighters had sneaked into the capital from northern Sinai but did not say whether they were members of ISIL. At least 26 Egyptian soldiers were killed or wounded on July 7, 2017, in attacks on checkpoints in the Sinai Peninsula.

Trump said all the countries involved — members of the Gulf Cooperation Council — are "essential partners" with the United States in efforts to crack down on extremism, including the fight against Islamic State group. Trump chose Saudi Arabia for his first overseas visit as president in May, two weeks before the Gulf crisis erupted. But the dispute has dragged on. "Kuwait has been really the leader of getting it solved, and we appreciate that very much".

President Donald Trump's oldest son is scheduled to make his first appearance on Capitol Hill Thursday as part of a Senate investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election and a meeting he had with Russians during his father's campaign previous year.

"Nothing is inevitable. It would be great if something else could be worked out", said the president. Qatar, which hosts a US military base critical to the effort to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, has long denied funding extremists.

T-Mobile USA also made mention that "Like all plans, features may change or be discontinued at any time". Adding another line makes it $140 a month, adding another line after that (4 total) costs $160 a month.

The Kuwaiti leader is thanking the United States for standing with their country when Iraq's Saddam Hussein launched an invasion.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said before the visit that it was aimed at getting Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations in the region to stand in "unity" with Israel and confront Iran.

In conjunction with a private meeting, President Donald Trump and Kuwaiti Emir Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah are holding a press conference together at 1:30 p.m. ET Thursday.
