The deals included the purchase of F-16 fighter planes and the extension of a defense cooperation agreement between the countries for 15 years.

Trump had said during a brief media availability before Thursday's meeting that Bahrain is "doing a lot of business" with the US.

He said Bahrain "buying a lot of things." The president cited the $9 billion figure.

Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa said the visit was important to the kingdom and the 100-year relationship between the two countries.

Al Khalifa said the US and Bahrain will continue to strengthen ties that the people of both countries have benefited from.
