Following weeks of anticipation and media attention, U.S. President, Donald Trump finally arrived to Saudi Arabia on Saturday, along with first lady Melania, daughter Ivanka and son in law Jared Kushner. 

Receiving a warm red-carpet airport welcome, the U.S. President and his entourage were greeted by Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

During his first foreign trip as President, Trump will be attending the kingdom's international Islamic summit, and is set to meet leaders of all the Gulf Cooperation Council nations as well as leaders of other Muslim nations including Turkey, Azerbaijan, Nigeria and Indonesia. 

The two-day visit to the kingdom will also include several other activities and meetings, with Trump expected to sign a major weapons deal, give a speech on Islam and discuss the fight against terrorism.

Naturally, following his arrival, Trump's visit began making waves online with thousands taking to Twitter and other social media platforms.

Here's a little of what people had to say: 

A few are commenting on the red carpet arrival scene

Others are sharing the moment Trump received the Saudi top civilian honor

A few welcomed Melania

Others have a lot to say about Arabic coffee and "finjan" shaking

Many are obsessing over 'Bint Trump"

Ivanka's hashtag is actually breaking the internet

Some are in love ... with one of Ivanka's security guards

And others are turning to sarcasm to make us all LOL

Anticipation ahead of a "Historic Summit"

Trump's trip marks his commitment to improving relations with Saudi Arabia. This is significant given the U.S. President has in the past greatly criticized the oil-rich country. 

On the presidential campaign trail, Trump suggested he would block all oil imports from the kingdom and routinely criticized his political opponent, Hillary Clinton for her close relationship with Riyadh. In the past, he has also suggested that Saudi Arabia was responsible for the attacks of September 11, 2001.

His changing rhetoric towards the country and its rulers is already evident as he prepares to attend the highly anticipated "historic" Islamic Summit on Saturday and Sunday. 

The Saudi-U.S. Summit on Saturday features a series of bilateral meetings between King Salman and Trump and will see them “focus on re-affirming the long-standing friendship, and strengthening the close political, economic, security and cultural bonds between the two nations.”

It will be followed by the GCC-US Summit on Sunday, the Arab Islamic American Summit, and the inauguration of the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology.

Saudi Arabia's King Salman has expressed optimism about the summit and   hopes it will mark the start of a "new partnership" between the U.S. and the Muslim world.
