Obama and his close advisors have hated al-Sisi, tried their best to undermine Egypt because of it ever since.
al-Sisi used the Egyptian Army to rebuild the Christian churches the Muslim Brotherhood destroyed and attends Christmas worship sevices at the Coptic cathedral to reassure them of his protection.
