My friend and Mideast expert, Nathan Field, describes why President Trump’s Egyptian policy is a winner.
Egypt is a geostrategically vital part of the Mideast. It has long been the source of stability for the region. It has also long been an ally of the United States. Since the Arab Spring, however, that has been changing.

This article details the ramifications of that.
