Egyptian President El-SiSi: “Don’t jump to conclusions” on President Trump…

There is no doubt the genuine secular leaders in the mid-East, those who value freedom and minority protections like Fattah el-Sisi (Egypt) and King Abdullah (Jordan), will find a more consistent and stable ally with President Donald Trump.

“I believe that President Trump will be vigorously engaged with the issues in the region,” el-Sisi said. “As a matter of fact, Trump has shown deep and great understanding of what is taking place in the region as a whole and Egypt in particular. I am looking forward and expecting more support and reinforcement of our bilateral relations.”  (link)

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi has praised U.S. President-elect Donald J. Trump, saying that his inflammatory statements from the campaign trail do not necessarily reflect the actions he will take as president.

El-Sissi, in an interview with Portuguese news agency LUSA released on Saturday, said, “let’s not jump into conclusions or worry” about future U.S. actions or policies in the Middle East. The army chief-turned-president was interviewed prior to his upcoming Nov. 21 visit to Portugal.  El-Sisi was among the very first foreign leaders to congratulate Trump’s on his presidential victory.

“We have to distinguish between the rhetoric that takes place within presidential campaigns and the real and actual administration of a country after the inauguration,” he said. “There will be a chance for more thorough readings.”

El-Sisi’s remarks echoed sentiments that have been circulating on local and regional media, with columnists speculating that Trump campaign rhetoric — such as his call for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. — will be watered down.

Trump and el-Sisi have already shown a certain bond. Trump said there was “good chemistry” when they met on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in September. El-Sisi said Trump would “without a doubt” make a strong leader.

El-Sisi, who was elected in 2014 after leading the military ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, has painted himself as a regional leader in the fight against Islamic militancy — a stance that echoes Trump’s priorities.

The prospect of warmer relations with Trump comes after years of relative chill between el-Sisi and outgoing U.S. President Barack Obama.  (read more)

    We are going to have to reconnect with some former allies in the region, and both Fattah el-Sisi as well as King Abdullah are the best places to start. Neither country is perfect, as both Egypt and Jordan are meshed with the political ideology known as Islam, and they certainly have issues on the front of equal rights (the Coptic Christians are still treated poorly in Egypt). But Abdullah was educated in the west, including Deerfield Academy which is one of the finest coat and tie boarding schools in the United States (which he has replicated with the nearly identical King’s School in Jordan). Fattah el-Sisi has been instrumental in crushing the Muslim Brotherhood within Egypt and could use the support of America (likewise we could also use his help as well).

    I think that Trump is making the correct moves here. While I would rather that Muslim immigration be slowed to a crawl, reversed, or halted completely, I also understand that maintaining good relationships that part of the world is going to be instrumental in the fight against more radical countries and terrorist organizations. To be sure, it’ll be a better beginning than Obama’s Cairo speech which led to the revolt in several formerly pro-Western nations like Egypt and Tunisia.

        We have a real immigration mess on our hands right now.

        It will take several years to clean it up.

        People not only enter illegally but overstay student and tourist visas.

        We have no idea, and I mean no idea of who is in our country or where they are in our country.

        Some posters may think this is not the thread to post this on but when dealing with leaders of other countries I always worry about giving in to their demands on what they want for “their countrymen” not Americans.

        I know Trump is different but we have been stabbed in the back just once too often and I am a little touchy when it comes to immigration and citizenship.

          respectfully disagree with a caveat……we do not want to determine strictly by numbers but instead by NEED……family reunification and quotas are no way to run immigration….we need to look at national shortages in terms of skills and ramp up immigration in those areas…we could thereby tailor the program to areas of need rather than entirely on the wants of those wishing to immigrate here…..in other words do what is good for America first and the immigrants’ needs come secondary

            When it comes to jobs we need to take care of Americans.
            More than 90 million Americans are out of work.
            Almost everyone that crosses our borders automatically qualify for affirmative action.
            That means that they get job opportunities and educational opportunities before we do.
            This needs to stop. I hope that Mr. Trump brings some much needed common sense and patriotism to the supreme court. It would be nice to have the high court on the side of America. It hasn’t been for quite some time.

            No…because the companies will always find a “need” to import cheaper workers with H1B…and then Americans get to train their replacements. This is happening in ALL sectors of society.
            No, we get Americans back to work first — besides, it destabilizes other countries and doesn’t help them to develop if they have such a brain drain.
            Right now, we don’t really need many immigrants — unless it’s to prop up the grossly inflated housing market.
            We might make an exception for MENA Christians (and only after it can be thoroughly vetted and confirmed that they are Christian) because they are getting their heads lopped off and will likely never have a country to go back to nor are they truly being offered asylum in Europe where they get thrown to the Islamic dogs. Besides, getting some native speakers who would actually be loyal could be a great security and intel boon (it is one of our biggest issues: the languages/accents in question are some of the world’s most difficult and the cultural aspects are a miasma…you really need natives, and we don’t have that many, plus the ones we have can be very suspect).

      Because of el-Sisi’s speech, I do not beIieve he would be opposed to a US ban on moslems if that is the best course. I prefer a moratorium on all immigration for ten years until we weed out this mess. Our country had a great boon and intellectual success during the period from the 20’s to 1965. We had no sizable immigration in that period, until Ted Kennedy stepped in.

      I think the best response is to “trust but verify” — there are some muslims who really don’t want problems, but the problem is with the religion itself. It’s best to just steer clear of entanglements altogether, as much as possible.

    Seems to me the AP is putting words into el-Sisi’s mouth

    “El-Sisi’s remarks echoed sentiments that have been circulating on local and regional media, with columnists speculating that Trump campaign rhetoric — such as his call for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. — will be watered down”

    Really? While el-Sisi was probably referring to some of the more harsh language Trump used regarding radical Islamist terrorists & wanted to tamp it down a bit for strategic purposes, I can’t see him arguing with a temporary ban on Muslims, especially from terror producing countries

    The AP makes it sound as if he was specifically talking about that, which he never mentioned. They’re simply parroting the lefts spin. Typical

    That said, real world leaders understand what a Trump presidency brings to the table, a chance to band together & rid the world of a dangerous scourge

    World leaders who believe in freedom & all that entails, have been waiting forever for a true leader like Trump to take the lead. It gives them hope, the confidence & strength to move to action. A true worldwide coalition against terror & the scum don’t stand a chance

    No more leftist interference from our end will bring about real results

    I saw El SiSi attending Coptic Christian services in Egypt, after the Muslim Brotherhood was deposed and he became the leader. A ministry I have partnered with for years, Kim Clement Center, was in Israel & the Middle East periodically during those times doing one of his “Boots on the Ground” episodes. It seems he (El SiSi) wasn’t just window dressing either. Don’t know about now, but he did so for quit awhile earlier. Winning, winning, winning… I won’t get tired of, but I do have to keep pinching myself to make sure I am awake and and not dreaming!

    el Sisi has done a heck of a lot in his short time in office. I know Trump will do the same. Both are doing it for their citizens, who they love and respect. They’re not doing it for money and power like their predecessors.

    Obama couldn’t get to the phone fast enough to congratulate Morsi for his overthrow of Egypt (its how I saw it)

    . When el Sisi came into office obama never called. I guess he didn’t like his mb being treated so unfairly and labeled a terrorist organization along with being thrown out and hunted to Qatar.

    I love the fact el Sisi has worked so hard with Israel and making them safer. He didn’t have to destroy Hamas’s tunnels and lose good men for it. I know if I was an Egyptian, I’d be ever so proud of el Sisi and his leadership. He has made the ME a great deal safer than what it was.

    el-Sisi is quite open, relaxed but at attention, talking with his hands, looking down to search his own thoughts to recall info for the point he is making. el-Sisi has the “high ground,” the higher straight-backed chair.

    PE Trump is relaxed, thoughtful but inquisitive – notice the rightward tilt of the head, the eyebrows, the mouth. Hands are thoughtful. el-Sisi definitely has all of PE Trump’s attention. PE Trump is listening intitively.
