Trump Succeeds In Freeing American Charity Worker From Egyptian Prison. Obama Had Failed. | Daily Wire

According to White House officials, this wasn’t your classic Obama-era quid pro quo transaction or controversial prisoner exchange. Unlike Obama, who infamously traded five senior Taliban Gitmo detainees for U.S. army deserter Bowe Bergdahl in 2014, Trump personally oversaw Hijazi’s release and received assurances from Cairo that the prisoner release was a gesture of good faith. We received “assurance from the highest levels [of Sissi’s government] that whatever the verdict was, Egypt would use presidential authority to send her home,” an unidentified senior administration told the Post. Trump reportedly sent his military aide, Air Force Maj. Wes Spurlock, “to escort Hijazi and her family on the plane home to Washington,” according to the Post.
