While Obama is still looking for a magic wand to use, President Trump is making deals and getting things done…
IT’S OFFICIAL. After the Obama administration failed for years to secure the release of 6 Americans locked up in Egypt — President Trump (in basically no time) got it done.
ANYONE FIND THAT MAGIC WAND YET?! Trump ensured that all made it home safely, ordering a gov’t aircraft to pick them up and fly them in. Aya Hijazi, 30, was one of the Americans unjustly jailed by Egypt. Thankfully she’s safe now & she met with president Trump at the White House.
Aya’s brother Basel said “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” BOOM! #TheTrumpEffect. Obama makes excuses, Trump makes deals. Period.
Aya grew up in Virginia and is a graduate of George Mason Univ. Aya and her husband launched the Belady Foundation in Cairo, Egypt. The foundation’s purpose was to help children who live on the streets. The couple was charged with sexually assaulting children in their care. No direct proof has ever been presented to substantiate such claim, and a court hearing was delayed seven times during the course of three years.
“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.”

So Aya, her husband, and 4 others were locked up despite no proof of the allegations. According to AP, the “child abuse and trafficking charges” against them were “widely dismissed by humans rights workers and U.S. officials as false” .. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) said Trump ‘handled it the way things like this should be handled’ .. Corker advocated for Hijazi’s release in his own talks with Egypt President Al-Sisi, and was also briefed on Trump’s latest negotiations.
Folks, businessmen get sh*t done. But only if they’re the real deal!
And only if they know The Art Of The Deal.
