The White House has announced that US President Donald Trump will speak on Islam during his upcoming trip to Saudi Arabia, and the world cannot stop laughing.
The announcement has spawned countless memes, tweets and Facebook posts, with social networks unable, or perhaps unwilling, to come to terms with Trump’s intention.
Of course, Trump is somebody whose speeches and policies, both as a presidential candidate and as the winner of the US election, have arguably been very divisive, with a wave of Islamophobia in the US blamed on him.
From being unable to stop laughing to bracing for the start of an all-out, global war, HT takes a look at some of the best reactions to the White House announcement.

That sound you hear is the entire world laughing.
Instead of sending Trump to Saudi Arabia to give a speech about Islam, how about sending another white-Christian American. Me. I'll do it.— Dr. Craig Considine (@CraigCons) May 16, 2017
