Trump Welcomes Sisi

Trump to 'reboot' US-Egypt ties with Sisi meeting

The talking head on MSNBC said Obama wouldn't let him set foot in the White House.

He led the overthrow of the highly objectionable and Islamist elected presidency of the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi.

He has recently put in place a severe and bloody crackdown not only on Islamists but also on some in the secular opposition.

The crackdown routinely defies every guarantee against executive lawlessness found in the US constitution, the "civil liberties" human rights organizations oppose.

I have the distinct impression Sisi's government has less republican legitimacy than Putin's, and no democratic legitimacy at all, as it originated in a military coup against the democratically elected government of Morsi.

Sisi's government apparently sponsors levels of illegality and state violence that exceed those of the Russian Republic.
