US citizen, Aya Hijazi, a 30 year old humanitarian worker and her husband, Mohamed Hassanein and four other charity workers were released from an Egyptian prison during the first 100 days of the Trump Administration. They had been in prison since May 1, 2014. Did you hear about this on the news?
This is an amazing story. Aya is an Egyptian American charity worker from Falls Church, Va. who was jailed in Cairo, Egypt for three years without ever having a trial. (the Egyptian constitution does not grant rights to speedy trial) She returned home to the United States late Thursday on the 20th of April, 2017 after the President Trump’s administration negotiated her release. President Trump himself spoke with Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi to insure the immediate release.
Aya is the founder, along with her husband, of the Belady Foundation, a refuge center for homeless street children in Cairo.
The couple and their co-workers charged with child abuse and trafficking charges. These accusations have been long dismissed by human rights workers and U.S. officials. There was never any evidence presented against any of the parties. For three years hearings were canceled or delayed and Human rights groups were calling for the US to step in for years. The Obama Administration tried to negotiate their release for 3 years. It took Donald Trump 2 weeks and a little reverse psychology.
Trump recently has been moving to reset U.S. relations with Egypt. He invited Sissi to the White House and on April 3, Sissi met with President Trump. Later Trump publicly praised the Egyptian President for doing a “fantastic” job and offered the U.S. government’s “strong backing” On Sunday the 16th of April a court in Cairo dropped all charges against Aya and the others and released them. Trump sent a plane to pick them up and deliver them to Washington DC.
This guy is amazing! Why don’t we hear about this all over the place? This is a big deal. The reason is clear. The mainstream media will do everything in their power to avoid any news about Trump that is positive. Especially if it makes Obama appear as the ridiculously weak negotiator that he was.
This is how a BOSS takes care of things!
This is how a community organizer handles things.
