    Your view is wrong.

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

    Egypt is not on the State Department's list of state sponsors of terrorism. Sisi actually ousted the Muslim Brotherhood from the Egyptian government.

    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.

    Nice work on the part of the Administration.

    Are we 100% sure that they actually are innocent? If not it would not be the first time that people used their vication's access to children to exploit them

    Golly, you guys sure did dress down Obama over negotiations with egypt. The white guy seems to get a free pass to do what you despised obama for doing.

    And I have no issues with playing the race card on this, if there actually even is something called a race card. I only have issues with laying it down on a post with my friend, dave, who I know is anything but a racist.

    Clean it up or I won't debate you.

    Btw. El Sisi was Morsi's enforcer in the army. You fell for a re branding exercise. Way to go.

    We armed the $#@!s a couple of years back. But seriously it's time to issue the following warning to American citizens in the ME. You have 90 days to get out. We will help you. But after that you are on your own like a storm chaser or camera man rushing towards the flood waters. Or like the idiots who climb McKinley in the winter.
    You know or should know that the risks are real and we aren't going to sacrifice more lives or political capitol due to your poor judgement.

    You never debate. You never inform. You present falsehoods as truth and just hope people are either too polite or too stupid to call you on them.
    Your constant attempts to draw race into the discussion makes it clear you have nothing to offer. Stop posting stupid $#@! and I will stop calling you on it.

    It is instructive to note that I've called no names, used no language that had to be blacked out, or singled out any of my fellow posters.

    Let me deviate from that a bit: You cannot say the same. I don't view you as a constructive poster.
