"White House officials said Mr. Trump took a personal interest in her case...."'"

“White House officials said Mr. Trump took a personal interest in her case… ‘He just said, “Let’s bring her home.”’”

This article, new today, appears in the print edition not on the front page, but on page 10. On the home page of the web edition, it’s hard to find. I did a search for the woman’s name and found nothing, then for “Egypt,” and found the headline tucked away… do you see it?

By contrast, the Washington Post home page has the story at the top of the home page, with the woman’s name, Aya Hijazi, in clear print:

The visual effect is a triad of bold females challenging the powers that be: …

It’s hard — isn’t it? — for the liberal media to give President Trump credit for anything, but they should gracefully give him the credit he genuinely deserves. Imagine what the NYT would look like if President Obama had brought Aya Hijazi home! Trump was portrayed in a negative light for cozying up to Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi, but the Obama administration tried and failed to bring Hijazi home.

As Ann Althouse (no Trump fan, BTW) suggests, while the MSM are working to represent Trump as a loose-lipped buffoon, his actions and results show him a negotiator of skill beyond MSM ken.
