Subject: Foreign pool report #1 POTUS with President Sisi of Egypt

Pool was taken at 12:02 to Oval Office where both POTUS and President Sisi were seated . The Egyptian President was smiling almost all the time . He had a translator sitting on his left side .
General Sisi spoke in Arabic stating two important points as he describe them .First , his willingness and that of Egypt to fight terrorism which he Sums up as " a satanic ideology " and "an evil one that terrorize innocent civilians ". He assures POTUS that Egypt will help him to implement his counter Terrorism strategy .

The other point he stressed was about the (problem of the century ) he didn't mention by name but my guess is that he was referring to the Israeli / Palestinian conflict at which POTUS agreed that they need to work on it .

On a style point , Sisi expressed his admiration of President Trump's character and his strategy of fighting terrorism more than once .

No officials were spotted at the oval . I guess they were all at the cabinet room in anticipation for expanded meeting that follows .

Sisi met with President Trump in NY in Sept when he was a candidate .

This is the first visit of General Sisi to Washington in 8 years.

Full transcript to follow .

Your pooler asked POTUS if his admin will consider enlisting the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization which Egypt is pushing for , he listened but didn't answer .
