WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said he would call Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to discuss Friday’s terrorist attack at a mosque in North Sinai that left more than 230 people dead.

“Will be calling the President of Egypt in a short while to discuss the tragic terrorist attack, with so much loss of life,” Trump said in a post on Twitter. The call is scheduled for 3 p.m. (2000 GMT), according to White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters.
