The delay in dealing with the case of Ibrahim Halawa has left Irish observers with a negative view of Egypt's human rights record. It is a view apparently shared by the U.S. State Department, which last week cut $300 million in military and economic aid to the country and its president Abdel el-Sisi, a leader once praised by Donald Trump, for failing to make progress on human rights . But there is more to the move than meets the eye. We talk to New York Times Cairo bureau chief Declan Walsh. Later in the podcast we talk to Texas resident John Holden about the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, and what is expected when President Trump visits the stricken region later today.
