Earlier this week, Defense Sec. James Mattis and deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell visited Egypt to discuss the issue. Trump ordered a government plane to Egypt to carry the two back to the U.S.
The Trump haters will be pissed off that Trump sent the plane for them, all that expense and all.It's kinda nice having someone in the WH that knows how to use influence, and cares about people.
