After four years of tension with the United States, Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi now has a fan in the White House and on Monday he meets President Donald Trump.When Sisi meets Trump on Monday during his first state visit to Washington, he will see a counterpart who better appreciates his "mission" to fight Islamists and extremists, without Obama's hand-wringing over human rights.Trump has been gushing about Sisi.Sisi often speaks of himself as though his warnings go unheeded.Sisi's office said he will broach the issue with Trump, who has confusingly suggested that he is fine with either a two-state or a one-state solution to the conflict.Although Sisi may be delighted about having Trump's ear, he may yet be disappointed.
