The text of his talk is below the break.
Though no official endorsement was forthcoming, the next day, members of the Egyptian delegation to the United Nations did express outrage and frustration over President Obama’s ongoing support for the Muslim Brotherhood and concerns that a President Hillary Clinton would only continue the cooperation with that terror organization.
Ahmed Gad, a member of the Egyptian Parliament’s Foreign Relations Committee told Breitbart on Tuesday:
“I think 90 percent of Egyptians would prefer Trump because he will not cooperate with terrorists.”
President El-Sisi told CNN afterwards that he had “no doubt” that Donald Trump would make a strong leader.
Egypt is one of the biggest and oldest Muslim nations in world history. The Egyptian delegations’ positive comments about Trump and negative comments about Clinton show the irresponsibility of the MSM theme that all of Trump’s relationships with Muslims are toxic.
Trump was accompanied by his two primary advisors during the meeting with the Egyptian President; retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn—the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), and U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL).
After the meeting, the Trump campaign released the following:
“Mr. Trump expressed to President el-Sisi his strong support for Egypt’s war on terrorism, and how under a Trump Administration, the United States of America will be a loyal friend, not simply an ally, that Egypt can count on in the days and years ahead.”
The meetings were organized by Dr. Michael Morgan, a popular Egyptian media personality and host of a show called “American Pulse.”
Morgan was quite open concerning the Egyptians general distrust of Hillary Clinton. He said President El-Sisi wanted to meet with both candidates, because he didn’t want to give Clinton a chance to pretend she had his endorsement:
“As evil as she is, she [would] go out to the media and say: ‘Oh, I have a good relationship with this man [because] I know foreign policy.’ “
“So he made sure [to] meet Trump … to make sure the American public doesn’t think he supports Hillary.”
