An Egyptian-American prisoner being held in a Cairo prison for three years learned the hard way how spineless the Obama administration is.
Aya Hijazi suffered for three years while former President Barack Obama did nothing to safeguard her return.
Now, President Donald Trump has managed to secure her release and has helped her return to the United States.
According to “The Washington Post,” Trump’s aides worked for several weeks with Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi to secure her release.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
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.
Credit to the Trump administration for working tirelessly to secure the release of an American citizen.
The Obama administration should feel ashamed that they let an American citizen sit in an Egyptian jail cell for 3 years. That is completely unacceptable and shows how weak Obama really was.
