Fri, Apr. 21, 2017: Trump meets with Aya Hijazi after her release from prison in Egypt

President Donald Trump has welcomed back to the United States Aya Hijazi, an Egyptian American charity worker released from jail in Egypt.

She was released from jail on Tuesday after nearly three years of detention on human trafficking charges widely dismissed as bogus by human rights groups.

“We are very happy to have Aya back home and it’s a great honour to have her in the Oval Office, with her brother,” Trump said, declining to answer questions about her case.

Hijazi was accompanied by her brother, Basel, as she met Trump in the Oval Office.
