Pence held talks with former army chief Sisi in Cairo that were expected to focus on United States aid and security, including a militant insurgency in the Sinai Peninsula. "It is a matter of years and not weeks or months", he said.

In addition, these Winter Olympics come on the heels of a dictate by this administration that medical professionals do not have to provide services to trans people.

"I don't think he has a real concept of reality", Rippon said of Pence. During Sissi's presidency, there have been restrictions on freedom of expression and thousands have been held as part of a government crackdown on opposition.

If Trump is determined to push forward his Middle East plans in disregard of Arab aspirations, there is little prospect for a peace deal between the Palestinians and Israel, warned the analysts.

Vice President Pence warned of "dangerous consequences" for the country's defense amid the government shutdown on Saturday after the Senate failed to reach a deal to fund the government.

Pence has been briefed on the government shutdown as he flies across the Atlantic Ocean to the Middle East.

But that decision has thrown what had been a nascent effort at beginning discussions of peace between the Israelis and Palestinians into serious question.

Pence's visit, original scheduled for December 20, 2017, was delayed after U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Pence added, he and the President believe they can solve issues related to the budget like the border wall, chain migration and DACA within the next few weeks. "My perception was that he was encouraged by that message". After they were taken into the palace, media were not allowed into a photo session with the two leaders.
