It doesn't matter what any other country thinks. But it is nice to hear.

In an interview with CNN, Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi talked about the Republican and Democrat nominees for U.S. president. Breitbart reports that the Egyptian president has some good things to say about Trump:
I think 90 percent of Egyptians would prefer Trump because he will not cooperate with terrorists. He [Trump] will not cooperate with Muslim Brothers and our main concern in Egypt now is terrorist attacks as you saw two days ago in the United States. We saw it daily in Egypt on the hands of Muslim Brothers so we know very well that Muslim Brothers are a terrorist group and we want to build up our democratic regime.

CNN was asking about remarks made by Trump that they called anti-Moslem. CNN also asked about remarks made by Clinton that were critical of Egypt's government, to which he responded:
"in Egypt there will not be a chance for any dictatorship because in Egypt there is a constitution, there is law, and there is the will of the people which will refuse to allow any leader to stay in his position for any period longer than his term which is four years."
I really don't care what another country thinks of the president, past, present, or future. I do find it interesting to know what countries think, though. I not thinking we should not insult our friends, but that's what Clinton did. The remarks by el-Sisi seem proper, though, considering the circumstances.
