White House readout about Trump's conversation with Saudi King

1) the Saudi media spoke about an American invitation to Saudi King but the White House statement never mentioned that. 2) the White House statement spoke about Saudi request for Trump to lead "an effort" not only to "defeat terrorism" but also to make the region better socially and economically, i.e. Saudi King asked Trump to lead the Arab and Islamic worlds. 3) There was no mention of Palestine. Saudi kings used to give a token mention of Palestine. 4) There was no mention whatsoever of the Muslim ban.  Not a word.
