Ileana Ros-Lehtinen provides preview of Obama speech: Not a fan of aid to Egypt

The Miami Republican who chairs the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said she's opposed to forgiving Egypt's debt as President Barack Obama will propose today.

"I further believe that the U.S. should not provide economic aid to Egypt until we know who the new leaders are and that they will support the U.S., govern democratically,  and abide by peace agreements with Israel," she said. "We should not provide assistance to any government which includes the Muslim Brotherhood. I also oppose setting up enterprise funds in Egypt until questions such as who will receive money from it and how the fund will be administered are answered."
