Trump welcomes al-Sisi: US president rolls out red carpet for Egypt's strongman (part 1)

Donald Trump gave a warm welcome to Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in the White House this Monday.

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.
