FILE -- In this Sunday, May 21, 2017 file photo, U.S. President Donald Trump, right, meets with Bahrain's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Trump's administration had approved a multibillion-dollar sale of F-16 fighter jets to Bahrain without the human rights conditions imposed by the State Department under President Barack Obama. On Tuesday May 23, 2017, Bahrain police raided a town where a sit-in has been going on for months supporting a prominent Shiite cleric who had his citizenship stripped by the government. Activists and rights group warn Trump's embrace of Bahrain only will fuel the crackdown. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File)
