FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Statement by the Press Secretary on the Visit of President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi of Egypt
On April 3. 2019, I am headed into work at the White House and notice a group protesting outside of the White House. Their demonstration is to gain attention from our President. I interviewed the leader – An Egyptian-American.
Today, Egypt's President Sisi is meeting Trump in DC. but back in Egypt, parliament is pushing through a series of repressive amendments to the constitution. We call on the US authorities to use this visit to urge Egypt to respect human rights. https://t.co/QNpMYD6h76— Amnesty International (@amnesty) April 9, 2019
