Donald Trump Meeting World Leaders in NYC
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton met Egypt’s President in New York Monday. The 2 US Presidential candidates tried to bolster their diplomatic credentials at the United Nations.
Mrs. Clinton said last week that she would meet Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, along with leaders from Japan and Ukraine on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
She spent more than an hour in private discussions with the Egyptian leader, with aides later saying they had discussed issues ranging from counter-terrorism to human rights.
Donald Trump’s meeting with Mr. Sisi is the 1st time the Republican presidential candidate has met a leader from the Muslim world.
The GOP nominee has previously called for a ban on Muslims entering the United States,he spoke with Sisi at New York’s LaGuardia airport, after flying in from Florida.
Donald Trump told Mr. Sisi, who has been much criticized by rights groups for his intolerance of dissent that “under a Trump administration, the United States of America will be a loyal friend that Egypt can count on.”
Donald Trump has called for “extreme vetting” of refugees entering the United States along with a ban on people from “terrorist nations.”
In a TV interview Monday said that meetings with foreign leaders are on his agenda during United Nation’s Week in NYC.
“I don’t want to comment specifically on who but a couple of people are coming over. I’ve already met with a couple,” he said.
