Fair Is Fair

Don't know what quids were quoed, but this is a good thing that Trump has done:

An Egyptian American charity worker who was imprisoned in Cairo for three years and became the global face of Egypt’s brutal crackdown on civil society returned home to the United States late Thursday after the Trump administration quietly negotiated her release.
President Trump and his aides worked for several weeks with Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi to secure the freedom of Aya Hijazi, 30, a U.S. citizen, as well as her husband, Mohamed Hassanein, who is Egyptian, and four other humanitarian workers. Trump dispatched a U.S. government aircraft to Cairo to bring Hijazi and her family to Washington...
Obama tried. Sissi seems less than a good guy, and I assume Obama wasn't willing to kiss his ass the way Trump did when he visited Washington recently. So who knows what deals were made or implied?

We can expect Trump to tout this like crazy, and I guess he deserves it. It's not as if he has much else to point to, other than getting a predictable hard case on the Supreme Court.

[Update: Yup. All about himself. Still an asshole.]
