President Trump departs for his first foreign trip as president Friday. He'll visit Saudi Arabia and Israel, and then go to the Vatican and Brussels.

The trip comes amid a swirl of allegations about collusion with Russia, leaked intelligence which may have come from Israel and questions about U.S. policy on the location of the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

Here & Now’s Robin Young speaks with Wilson Center analyst Aaron David Miller (@aarondmiller2) about how the president is likely to be received.

This segment aired on May 18, 2017.
