Trump Praises Egypt’s Sisi in Riyadh Meeting

President Trump on Sunday accepted an invitation to visit Egypt before showering Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi with praise during a meeting in Riyadh. “We've really been through a lot together positively,” Trump said of Sisi, adding that the pair was having “very, very important talks” together. Trump thanked Sisi for the release of U.S. aid worker Aya Hijazi, who was released from an Egyptian jail last month after being held for three years. He went on to heap praise on the Egyptian leader for the country’s security situation, saying “safety seems to be very strong” there. “I will get to Egypt. We will absolutely be putting that on the list very soon,” he said. The warm words were reciprocated by Sisi, who described Trump as “a unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible.” Trump was also overheard complimenting Sisi on his shoes, according to the Associated Press.
