After church attacks, Trump confident in the Egyptian president

President Donald Trump, joining the international condemnation of the church bombings in Egypt, said in a tweet Sunday that he has “great confidence” that Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi, “will handle the situation properly.” The attacks claimed by ISIS on Coptic churches in the Nile Delta city of Tanta and Alexandria, killing more than 40 people,  took place less than a week after Sisi visited the White House.
Egypt’s Interior Ministry said a suicide bomber caused the blast at the Alexandria church when police stopped him from storming inside. Three of the 11 fatalities were police officers.
