It looks like the Arab leaders like Trump better than oBUMa
Sisi isn’t the only significant Middle East leader to praise Trump’s tough approach to jihad terror. Saudi Arabia’s Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman referred to Trump as a “strong president” in the fight against Iran, although that statement was likely motivated by the Sunni-Shia conflict, and doesn’t reflect any genuine opposition to jihad terror on Saudi Arabia’s part.
Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi told Fox News’ Bret Baier in an exclusive interview Wednesday that President Trump has a “true understanding” of the realities in the Middle East when it comes to terrorism, drawing an apparent contrast with the policies of the Obama administration.
“In fact many things over the last four years occurred and caused many, many problems,” El-Sisi said. “That’s a fact. The region is paying a very heavy price for that.”
El-Sisi also described Trump as a “unique personality” and said he had “every confidence of unprecedented success” for the American president.
