Shithole: What Buhari Said About 'Vulgar' Comment And Trump
President Muhammadu Buhari is in the United States of America.
Bounce News had earlier in the day highlighted issues that would be discussed, adding the vulgar comment of President Trump about African countries, their huts and shithole nature as one of them.
It was actually mentioned, but the Nigerian President had a response on the comment, appearing like he did not believe the comment came from President Trump.
How well does he know Trump, you will ask.
But Trump confirmed that President Buhari knew him more than most Nigerians who may have believed that comment came from the American leader.
After the two leaders met, it was time to brief the media and the shithole issue came up, as one of the questions from reporters.
"You are the first leader from Sub-Saharan Africa to visit President Trump, did you address his earlier comments this year when he reportedly used vulgar language to describe African Nations?" one of the reporters at the gathering asked President Buhari.
Responding to that question, he said: "I am very careful with what the press says about others and myself.
"I am not sure about the validity or whether that allegation against the president was true or not, so the best thing for me was to keep quiet".
President Trump clearing the air on the issue, said: "Yes! We did have some countries that are in very bad shape and very tough places to live in, but we didn't discuss it because the president knows me and he knows where I am coming from. I appreciate that".
