Mahmoud Salem on the Muslim Brotherhood: "They can't be trusted"

CNN's Erin Burnett talks to Activist and Blogger Mahmoud Salem, a.k.a "SandMonkey" about the anti-American protests happening in Egypt. Salem has been a popular voice in Egypt since the start of the 'Arab Spring'.

Burnett asked Salem, what does the U.S. not understand about the Muslim brotherhood and its leader Mohamed Morsey.

"The Muslim brotherhood in itself has certain goals that don't necessarily corresponds with the United States agenda  or even the agenda of the general people of Egypt," said Salem.

Salem also said that the U.S. should stop aid to Egypt because it won't affect the Egyptian people. He said the money goes to army and not to the people.
