Arabs are known for their hospitality. Yes, I agree they are also known for many other things (good & bad), but an in depth discussion of this is beyond the scope of my post so listen to what I have to say before I forget it. It is said that to an Arab, extending good hospitality is more than just an admirable thing to do, it is a matter of honor and also a sacred duty.

So considering the above, when the president of the most powerful country in the world visits a number of Arab countries and instead of being met with hospitality, he is met with hostility (to my surprise, even by some officials such as the Egyptian foreign minister), I can assure him that it's not because Arabs suck at spelling.
