    Trump gets imprisoned american released

    Family Member of American Imprisoned in Egypt Credits Trump For 'Personally' Engaging Issue to Negotiate Release

    The family of an American woman and her Egyptian husband who were held captive for three years in Egypt are crediting President Trump for helping secure their release.
    Aya Hijazi and Mohamed Hassanein were part of a small group of aid workers who were locked up over allegations of child abuse and trafficking charges, even though they were in Egypt on behalf of the Beladi Foundation, a nonprofit Hijazi founded to help street children in Cairo.
    While the Obama administration did try to negotiate their release, it was ultimately President Trump who sealed the deal.
    "It's been a roller coaster of emotions the past couple of days," Hijazi's brother, Basel, told the Washington Post. "We're very grateful that President Trump personally engaged with the issue. Working closely with the Trump administration was very important for my family at this critical time. It let us be reunited as a family. We're so grateful."
    According to White House officials who spoke with The New York Times, Trump took an interest in Hijaziís case after being briefed about it ahead of Egyptian President Abdel el Sisiís visit. He then told his aides to lobby for her release with Egyptian officials.
    The Trump administration hosted Egyptian President Abdel Fatah Sissi at the White House earlier this month, smoothing over relations. Last Sunday, a Cairo court dismissed the charges against the aid workers.
    Earlier this week, Defense Sec. James Mattis and deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell visited Egypt to discuss the issue. Trump ordered a government plane to Egypt to carry the two back to the U.S.
    A White House official said there was no quid pro quo offered for the releases, but they did receive assurance that the aid workers would not be called back to Egypt if they were found guilty at a later date.

    In fairness to the Obama Administration, I understand that the Obama Administration worked on this but wouldn't give the Sissi administration the formal recognition it wanted. So.... while I'm glad these folks were released, I'm not sure that I know or like why.

    Exactly. In my view, Trump negotiated with the Muslim brotherhood. He negotiated with terrorists.

    African American presidents aren't usually allowed to do that.

    Trump actually promised not to do that.

    So what did he do, give them pallets of cash or release a number of terrorist for one deserter?

    I don't have any idea what being African American has anything to do with it. Poor card playing here.

    Let's also be fair to the Obama Administration - he did, in fact, negotiate with the worse state-sponsor of terrorism when he negotiated with Iran. it's not like his hands are clean.

    I am not opposed to negotiating with terrorists. I think the designation is largely an ethnocentric excuse not to negotiate. I think Ireland and Bosnia are excellent examples of why negotiations with terrorists are often productive.

    Please excuse my card playing.
