Egypt released Aya Hijazi from prison Thursday evening after President Trump struck a deal with Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi, but POTUS took the goodwill one step further Friday morning by hosting her and her family at the White House.

Hijazi, a humanitarian aid worker, had been imprisoned for three years under false pretenses, and President Trump praised her resolve during an on-camera press session in the Oval Office. (RELATED: Trump Strikes Deal With Egypt To Free Falsely Imprisoned American Aid Worker)
