Twitter users expressed how proud they are that Sisi is their president and leader, praising his achievements, most notably, how he conquered the infamous Muslim Brotherhood and fought terrorism until the brink of eradication.




Another twitter user Iman Elnahas @imanahas stressed her trust in president Sisi as she said, “I am proud that I revolted against the spy Mohamed Morsi, I am proud that I am against the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood that uses religion as a cover to reach power, I am proud that I participated in the June 30 revolution, and I am proud that I voted twice for Sisi.”




In January, #My_Vote_For_Sisi_2018 cropped up Twitter’s trending hashtags with thousands of interactions and retweets in support of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi’s candidacy in the presidential elections.


Twitter user Bent El-Mu3ez @GOGOMO222 said, “Yes prices are high, but… thank god you are living in a house and not a refugee nor your country is occupied, you are assured your family is safe and not slaves for IS militias, thank god your army is up to speed with the biggest armies in the world, thank god your country is safe and that no one in Egypt sleeps on an empty stomach.”




Magda Metwally @MagdaMetwally1, another Twitter user, said, “I swear to god even if he has no achievements, it is enough that he saved Egypt from the Muslim Brotherhood.”




Other Twitter users on the other hand slammed another hashtag that was initiated by Muslim Brotherhood web trolls that spreads rumors and demands for overthrowing the state; Twitter user @medoesmaeil said, “Here you would find only the nationalists who took it upon themselves to direct a message to the whole world that the other hashtag is being initiated by the sheeps of Qatar and Turkey, and that we supports President Sisi in all of his decisions, trust the leadership and we shall reach it, long live Egypt, sir!”
