Trump rolls by Toby Keith concert in a golf cart with Saudi King Salman

President Trump briefly paused to take in country pop star Toby Keith perform Saturday night in the Saudi capital with Saudi King Salman.

Keith was part of the festivities meant to entertain guests during Trump’s official visit to the desert kingdom. But according to a pool report, Trump was riding in a golf cart right past the performance, pausing briefly to take in the show on a large television screen amid evening festivities which included a banquet.

Trump “was wheeled into the atrium where the men-only Toby Keith concert was playing on the large screen,” the report said. “He was riding in a large-sized golf cart with a roof, seated next to the King, and took a long stare at the concert screen as he drove by.”

First Lady Melania Trump “was riding on the back of the golf cart,” the report said. Edler daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner were following close behind in a second golf cart with Ivanka in the front seat and Jared in the back.

“Both carts made their way across the atrium,” the report said. “Unclear where they went to after that.”

Keith performed at pre-inaugural event in Washington, D.C., back in January.

Toby Keith rose to fame in the early 2000s after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks with his song “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue,” which talked about the U.S. response in Afghanistan.

Here’s a verse from the song:

Now this nation that I love has fallen under attack
A mighty sucker punch came flyin’ in from somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
Through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
Like the fourth of July
