Saudi Arabia presented Donald Trump during his visit to the kingdom with 83 gifts including swords, daggers, two robes lined with rare fur and artwork featuring a picture of Trump.
King Salman of Saudi Arabia gifted US President Donald Trump 83 presents during the latter's state visit to the kingdom in May, it emerged.

Trump accepted gifts including an artwork of himself and two robes lined with cheetah fur and rare white tiger fur during his visit, which was his first foreign overseas tour as president.

The US president also received a number of traditional outfits, including the Saudi headgear, swords and daggers, as well as nine pairs of leather sandals.

Details over the gifts received during the state visit was released by the US State Department in response to a Freedom of Information request lodged by The Daily Beast.

During his visit in May, Trump praised the "magnificent" kingdom in a keynote speech - despite being critical of the Gulf nation during his presidential campaign.

His visit proved controversial after he failed to address Saudi Arabia's worrying record on human rights.

"We are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship," Trump said.

Instead, the US president bagged a $110 billion arms deal expected to be worth $350 billion over the next 10 years.
