Donald Trump gave a warm welcome to Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in the White House this Monday. It's the first time al-Sisi is invited to the White House by a US president, Trump's predecessor Barack Obama kept him at a distance to criticize Egypt's human rights record. Trump on the other hand sees in al-Sisi a top ally in the fight against terrorism. Our panel analyses what some may see as a meeting of kindred spirits in Washington.
