Toby Keith Will Perform in Saudi Arabia During President Trump’s Visit

Toby Keith will be in Saudi Arabia this weekend to perform at an event in the country’s capital of Riyadh. According to The Washington Post, Keith’s performance on Saturday (5/20) will take place at the same time President Trump visits Saudi Arabia during his first foreign trip as commander-in-chief, although it’s unclear if the concert was designed to coincide with the president’s visit. Keith’s performance is being promoted by the Saudi entertainment website Lammt as a free concert that only men can attend.


  • While Toby’s  show in Saudi Arabia wasn’t official billed as part of President Trump’s visit, the singer did perform at the president’s pre-inauguration concert in January.

Willie Nelson Writes Trump-Inspired Song

Willie Nelson’s upcoming album will include a song that he wrote about President-elect Donald Trump. The new Trump-inspired song, titled “Delete and Fast-Forward,” will be a reflection of Willie’s views on the President-elect as well as the 2016 election. When asked about the song in an interview with Rolling Stone, Nelson answered by speaking some of its lyrics. He said, “Delete and fast-forward, my friend/ The elections are over and nobody wins/ But don’t worry too much, you’ll go crazy again/ Delete and fast forward, my friend.” When asked if the fast-forward he sings about is for only four years, Nelson simply said, “Yeah.”

Trump Stumps at George Daily Saturday

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump threw a campaign rally and picnic at the George Daily Auditorium Saturday and spoke to a overflow crowd.

Trump is vying for the top of the list of Republican presidential candidates in Iowa with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. His campaign staff ordered up a catered picnic-style lunch in front of the Oskaloosa High School and George Daily Auditorium Saturday morning before  he took the podium inside Auditorium.

Trump campaign officials said they had 1,300 RSVPs for the event and an overflow crowd room was set up with a video link in the Oskaloosa Middle School cafeteria so everyone could watch Trump’s speech.

While Hy-Vee employees were grilling hamburgers and hotdogs for people outside, Trump grilled Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton and Republicans Walker and Jeb Bush from the podium during his speech.

Trump immediately went after Clinton as she is being investigated for the possibility of classified information being contained in her emails.

“I can’t see how can a person with a cloud over her head can run,” he said.

Trump also spoke about illegal immigration and a recent trip he took to the U.S.-Mexico border at Laredo, Texas. Trump said he spoke to Border Patrol agents and city officials about the situation on the border.

“It was a little bit scary to be on the border,” Trump said.

Trump said that illegal immigration is a problem that no one wants to talk about.

“If it wasn’t for me, you’d never hear about ‘sanctuary cities,’” he said. “We have to take back our country.”

Trump has taken criticism for past comments about illegal immigrants but he told the Oskaloosa crowd that he likes Hispanics and he has many who work for him and they are great people.
