President Trump and his aides worked for several weeks with Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi to secure the freedom of Aya Hijazi, 30, a U.S. citizen, as well as her husband, Mohamed Hassanein, who is Egyptian, and four other humanitarian workers. Trump dispatched a U.S. government aircraft to Cairo to bring Hijazi and her family to Washington.
NYTimes has reported that the process started under Obama.
Nothing President Trump does will ever be good enough for the Corporate Media
The cucks on tv will never give him credit for this. Sad!
Except Barry the Muzzie refused to allow Sisi in the White House because Sisi booted the Muslim Brotherhood the fuck out of Egypt. He barely even veiled that.
They may yet, pede. Even the CIA shilling vipers nest WaPo had to acknowledge this win.
Nice try Drumplings. It was all because of Obama. In fact. Everything Trump has done is because of Obama except for the things I conveniently say were because of Trump when they don't fit my "progressive" agenda. For example, my wife's boyfriend making me sleep in the garage.
They can't even credit the man for finalizing the deal. The part that is the most important
Hussein was butthurt that the group he funded during the Arab Spring in Egypt was btfo by Sisi and the Egyptian military.
This is what a real leader looks like. And yes fake news, I still support him. #MY PRESIDENT
Hating trump is like a lifestyle choice for these people at this point. Reporters will literally see this and their first thought will be "how can we make Trump look bad for doing this."
Watch. I guarantee tomorrow the narrative on CNN will be how Trump is bad for negotiating with an evil dictator.
When did Trump find time for this, what with all the raping and pillaging.
Such high energy!
It's funny how this is the go-to line everytime Trump has an accomplishment they either can't ignore or spin as a negative. Trump brings funding for clean water to a large US city that hasn't had clean water in years? Oh, actually Obama started that. Trump frees Americans held hostage? Oh well, Obama started those negotiations. Blah blah blah. Well the only question I have is why could Obama figure out a way to send pallets of hundreds of millions on various currencies to Iran but couldn't get any of this simple shit done?
This is what a leader looks like, folks.
Aya Hijazi, 30, a U.S. citizen, as well as her husband, Mohamed Hassanein, who is Egyptian
That fucking racist Trump only making deals to free white people...
Let's get that kid out of North Korea now too
The last part has no relevance. Yeah he may have created it, but Trump acted on it. Would Obama? Probably not.
Obama couldn't get it done because Al Sisi doesn't negotiate with terrorists.
Obama started negotiations on plenty of shit, sure.
But heaven forbid his idiotic ass actually get anything done.
She was there for 3+years and obama couldn't get it done. Pres. Trump met the guy on the 3rd of this month and had it done in 17 days.
The Obama administration unsuccessfully pressed Sissi’s government for their release. It was not until Trump moved to reset U.S. relations with Egypt by embracing Sissi at the White House on April 3 — he publicly hailed the autocrat’s leadership as “fantastic” and offered the U.S. government’s “strong backing” — that Egypt’s posture changed. Last Sunday, a court in Cairo dropped all charges against Hijazi and the others.
This is exactly the talking point libshits use when discussing the President.
So wtf was Obama doing in all that time? Remember the Arab Spring that saw the Muslim Brotherhood takeover Egypt? Remember women getting raped in the big square, even a lib reporter got assaulted.
Who was President then?
NYTimes has reported that the process started under Obama.
I take this as an indictment of Obama, they are admitting that he couldn't get it done. I'm willing to bet Egypt only got politely worded letters from a staffer until Trump got in.
GUYS THERE ARE LESS NFL PATRIOTS THERE THAN LAST YEAR THIS IS ACTUALLY NEWS
The CIA vipers also hate the Muslim Brotherhood and probably helped put Sisi in power. Sometimes even the deep state has the right intentions.
THIS IS WHAT FASCISM LOOKS LIKE, FOLKS. BETTER PONY UP AND GET READY FOR AN OPPRESSIVE 8 YEARS.
Al Sisi knew what a cunt Barry was and just ignored his ass. Just like every other head of state in the world. Barry was given no respect on the world stage because that's how much he earned.
I somewhat agree. The CIA is definitely not monolithic and they do employ good people with good intentions. They have certainly done some good things along with all the fuckery (an extensive amount of fuckery).
I'm not sure if they helped overthrow Morsi though, and I kind of doubt it. More often than not, the CIA has been in bed with Muslim extremist jihadists (*see footnote).
And in the case of Morsi versus Sisi, it seems they may indeed have been in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood:
The CIA also covertly backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, according to Egyptian news outlets. In December 2013, the news website Al Bashayer published audio recordings of a CIA delegation that met with Muslim Brotherhood Deputy Khayrat al Shatir and Brotherhood official Isam al Haddad at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo on Jan. 8, 2013.
*The CIA arming/supporting Islamist extremist proxies has happened in every decade, starting with the 1970s, under multiple presidents.
1979 - Carter - Afghanistan mujahideen (Operation Cyclone)
1980s - Reagan - ongoing assistance to Afghan mujahideen
1993 - Clinton - Bosnian mujahideen (was actually the Pentagon not the CIA)
1999 - Clinton - Kosovo Liberation Army
2000s - Bush - Chechen extremists
2011 - Obama - Libyan rebels
2011 - Obama - Syrian rebels (which included a significant Muslim Brotherhood component)
I do honestly believe the deep state was running something with Sisi against Hussein's wishes. Trump is by no means the first President to have to fight an uphill battle against the deep state's wishes. And look, they aren't always wrong about who they back either.
ANOTHER NIGHT IN THE CUCKSHED
You know Beijing is bringing pressure on that front. Part of the deal Trump worked out with XI no doubt.
Already a far more productive POTUS than Hussein.
I will never get sick of this winning. America is being made great again before our eyes :')
Of course they won't give credit to Trump, it's all actually thanks to Obama and everything that goes wrong is because of Bush (but he's a great guy now since he's anti trump) and Trump. /s
WTF I hate freeing american prisoners from hellhole foreign prisons now?!
Wait, you mean to say a real leader and master negotiator was able to do what Obunghole wasn't able to? OMG NO REEEEEEEEEEE
.... Dude no. The Brotherhood is a CIA asset.
They'll give him credit, just the opposite of praising him. "Trump frees hostage from shithole. Is this the end of drumpf?"
Politifact: Trump negotiated the release of 6 charity workers in Egypt.
LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE -- Obama said Trump doesn't have a magic wand so therefore Sissi just felt bad for Trump.
Whether or not you take the "conspiratorial" angle over pure incompetence of the Obama foreign policy "strategy," our interventions in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen etc have done nothing but seemingly intentionally bringing Sunni Wahhabist extremists to power while throwing the entire region into chaos. This directly caused the refugee crisis in Europe, which is radically shifting their demographics. The Egyptian military getting rid of the Islamists running that country, who originally took power with the US' help, was a direct blow to that direction.
Huh? No, the deep state runs the Muslim Brotherhood, sisi BTFO them
WTF, I love imprisoned Americans now!
Welcome home! Our President CARES!
GUYS YOU ARE MISREADING THIS BIGLY. I BET YOU THESE ARE PEDOS WHO ARE GOING TO SPILL THE BEANS ON PEDOGATE!!
The better question should always be "why does he start so many things but he didn't finish them?"
Trump started AND finished multiple things in under 100 days
This should be all over the news! MSM is a total joke.
For fucks sake. Even with the employment numbers that have come out, fake news has said "well of course this is due to Obama's policies and charismatic efforts to help the Bush administration's terrible economy he inherited."
Oh I don't know. I think it's because our new president gives people the confidence to find work! It starts from the top if you have a truly great leader
The Chinese blatantly insulted the leader of the free world. No stairs and no red carpet when Obungo visited China as is customary for heads of states. Made him walk out of the asshole of the plane on the built in staircase. It was no accident, the Chinese are very particular about this sort of thing.
The rest of the world is starting to respect us again and its GLORIOUS!
"The Obama administration unsuccessfully pressed Sissi’s government for their release."
There's Malik's lesser brother being Captain of the Fail-Boat again.
Ocucumber was a walking Pussy with a "Try Me" sticker found on toy packages. Press the button: "ififififififififififififififif okie doke. You win."
MSM: How much tax payer money was used to fly them home from Egypt?
What did Trump secretly offer Egypt? Did he pay them off?
Of course not, that's the oldest fucking lie in the piece of shit book of liberal media. Or hurr durr it's Obama's economy, hurr durr it's Obama's jobs, It's obama insert anything trump does here
I think he's saying that the deep state isn't just one group of colluders, nor is it always single minded, and some subset of them backed sisi against Malik's brothers wishes, and the wishes of some of their deep state peers
Won't see this on redacted
hillary never should have let Mubarak get overthrown when she was SoS. that guy was around as a high level official when Carter negotiated the Camp David Accords, probably the most important peace treaty in the history of US - ME relations.
when the US just let him burn and stand trial like that, every Muslim country was laughing at Mubarak for trusting America even when we loudly proclaim what a friend Egypt is to the US
You nailed it. That's the spin all right.
but I thought Trump hated all Muslims. REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Wtf I hate freed Americans
I wouldn't either if I were him. The Muslim Brotherhood has made two attempts at his life.
And we didn't even pay ransom this time.
What is his secret? (He is the God Emperor)
That's exactly how they'd spin it, too
Just wait until we're three years in and the media is still saying that Obama started it all
Trump has the biggest wand of them all, believe me, folks, there is no problem
Welcome Home!!! What a relief for them and their families
There was a time when no American citizen was every left to rot in a foreign jail. I'm glad we are returning to those times.
