An American woman and her Egyptian husband who had been imprisoned by the Egyptian government for three years arrived at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland late Thursday and will visit President Trump at the White House on Friday.

Aya Hijazi and Mohamed Hassanein were among the group of six aid workers who were locked up in 2014 over allegations of child abuse and trafficking charges.

After years of failed negotiations by the Obama administration, a family member of the couple credited Trump with "personally" stepping in to free him and his wife, as well as the four others.

"It's been a roller coaster of emotions the past couple of days," Hijazi's brother, Basel, told the Washington Post. "We're very grateful that President Trump personally engaged with the issue. Working closely with the Trump administration was very important for my family at this critical time. It let us be reunited as a family. We're so grateful."

Nice!
