President Donald Trump of the United States considered isolating Qatar as the beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism, pointing out that all reference was pointing to Qatar in financing radical ideology.

Through his account in Twitter, the US President said: “The Gulf states would take a hard stance on funding extremism. All reference was pointing to Qatar. Perhaps, this will be the beginning of the end of the horror of terrorism.”

“So good to see the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia visit with the Saudi King and 50 leaders of the countries already paying off,” he added.

“They would take a hard stance on funding terrorism; all reference was pointing to Qatar. Perhaps, this will be the beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism,” Trump said.

Saudi Arabia and several Arab allies, including Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, cut diplomatic ties and transport links with Qatar on Monday for the country’s role in supporting activities which undermine the security of the region.

The Gulf states and Egypt banned all flights to and from Qatar and ordered Qatari citizens to leave within 14 days.
