Obama Wouldn’t Save This American Prisoner…But Look What Trump Just Did!

One good way to filter your news feed is to watch CNN, listen to what they have to say about President Trump, and then believe the opposite.

For example, one of the liberal media’s favorite lies about President Trump is that he’s breaking apart families. They justify this fake news by repeatedly airing videos of illegal immigrants being deported while their children cry.

These emotional propaganda pieces always somehow fail to mention the crimes committed by the deportee. By failing to follow our laws, illegals are the only ones responsible for their families being separated.

Yet the media continues to blame Trump, vilifying him at every opportunity while claiming he has no compassion.

But the Hijazi family knows that this isn’t true.

Aya Hijazi, 30, has been held captive in Egypt for the past three years. She and her husband, Mohamed Hassanein, were in the country working for their charity for impoverished children.

The Obama administration was then unable, or unwilling, to free them.

But Trump the dealmaker showed Obama how diplomacy is done.

From Washington Post:

The couple and their co-workers had been incarcerated since May 1, 2014, on child abuse and trafficking charges that were widely dismissed by human rights workers and U.S. officials as false.

Virtually no evidence was ever presented against them, and for nearly three years they were held as hearings were inexplicably postponed and trial dates canceled. Human rights groups alleged that they were abused in detention. 

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.

Obama stated to the media that al-Sissi’s human rights abuses prevented him from being able to negotiate Hijazi’s release. Yet in 2014, the year of Hijazi’s capture, Obama had no problem opening the White House doors to some of the worst human rights violators in Africa.

Like everything else about Obama, something doesn’t add up.

One likely explanation is that Obama preferred former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi to al-Sissi. Morsi was backed by Clinton, and both Morsi and Obama were fans of arming the radical Muslim Brotherhood.

Whatever the reason for Obama’s failure, Aya Hijazi’s family is overcome with gratitude for Trump’s success in getting their loved one home.

Aya Hijazi’s brother Basel stated on behalf of the family, “We’re very grateful that President Trump personally engaged with the issue. Working closely with the Trump administration was very important for my family at this critical time. It let us be reunited as a family. We’re so grateful.”
