Saudi Prince Muqrin shows Ivanka Trump the proper way to drink Arabic coffee
A video of US President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, being shown by Saudi Prince Muqrin bin Abdulaziz on the proper etiquette of drinking Arabic coffee is being widely shared on social media.
In Arab-Gulf tradition, coffee drinkers are meant to shake their cups to signal they are done drinking coffee and should not be served another cup.
A similar video of Saudi King Salman showing Trump the same custom was also being shared online.
Trump is currently in Riyadh in his first official overseas trip as president where he is expected to sign multiple deals with the Saudi Arabia.
He is also expected to give a speech later on Sunday on the Islamic faith during a US-Arab Islamic Summit with nearly 50 other Muslim-majority country leaders.
