Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi sat down with Fox News’ Bret Baier for an exclusive interview on the growing threat of Islamic State militants in his country. 

The interview covers a range of issues, including his views of American leadership in the region. Asked by Baier what his views of U.S. leadership are, el-Sisi paused and said -- "difficult questions." 

Egypt has taken on a bigger role in the fight against ISIS after the group's militants last month beheaded 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians. El-Sisi's military has launched strikes against ISIS in Libya, while other Arab nations fight as part of the U.S.-led coalition striking targets in Iraq and Syria.
