President Donald Trump will seek to rebuild the U.S. relationship with Egypt at a Monday meeting with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi focused on security issues and military aid, a senior White House official said Friday.The bilateral relationship was strained when former president Barack Obama criticized Sisi for cracking down on the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's oldest Islamist group.Trump's relationship with Sisi got off to a good start before the U.S. presidential election during a September meeting in New York, when Trump was the Republican candidate, the White House said.Asked whether the White House would declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group, the official said Trump was interested in hearing Sisi's views during the meeting.The White House anticipates aid to Egypt will continue but provided no details Friday.
