Trump sees progress with Egypt on terrorism as he meets Sisi

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi praised on Tuesday US President Donald Trump's support of Egypt over the past few years, which has resulted in a quantum leap in Egyptian-US relations.

KELEMEN: The visit comes as Egyptians prepare to vote later this month on constitutional amendments that would give Sissi even broader powers and allow him to stay in power until 2034.

Speaking during a meeting with the Egyptian leader at the White House, Trump praised Egypt's efforts to confront terrorism, saying: "A lot of progress had been made in a lot of different ways in terms of terrorism".

An administration official briefing reporters ahead of Monday's visit said that as it relates to human rights, the Trump administration is "focused on getting the return of U.S. citizens who are detained in Egypt", adding that they are also concerned about the treatment of religious minorities in Egypt.

President Trump applauds Egypt's efforts to advance female economic empowerment and promote religious freedom. "I don't know about the effort, I can just tell you he is doing a great job. great president". Seventeen senators this week accused Egypt of unjustly detaining at least a dozen Americans, noting that the country receives $1.3 billion a year from the U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy on the Appropriations Committee is threatening to hold up the sale of new Apache helicopters until Egypt compensates an American who was badly injured in Egypt when the military mistakenly fired on her tourist group.

It's all about greed and profiteering. "They want a health care system which guarantees health care to all Americans as a right". Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Monday, April 15, from 6:30 to 7:30pm ET in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.


It's really incredible what's happened, especially in certain respects that we've already talked about. But we will be meeting with representatives of the President and of Egypt in a little while. And also about trade. According to the White House, the United States is one of Egypt's biggest trading partners. We do a lot of work together.

"We have never had a better relationship between Egypt and United States than we do right now", Al Sisi stated as per state-owned outlet Al Ahram.

Sisi emphasized through a translator that relations "have not been better". "Thank you very much for your support on all fronts".

Warning of the changes to the constitution the senators said: "If adopted, proposed amendments to Egypt's constitution that the parliament is now considering would erode the independence of Egypt's judiciary, giving President Sisi the power to hand-select the heads of judicial bodies, and may ultimately allow [him] to extend his rule until 2034".
