Trump Referred To Buhari As ‘Lifeless’ After April Meeting – Financial Times


Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has been referred to as “lifeless” by his United State counterpart, Donald Trump shortly after a meeting between the two leaders on April 30, Financial Times said on Monday.
Buhari, the first sub-Saharan Africa president to meet Trump since he was sworn in January 2017 as the 45th American president, was in the US for bilateral talks on Trump’s invitation.
That meeting ended with Trump saying he never wanted to meet someone as lifeless as Buhari again, Financial Times reported citing three persons familiar with the matter.
American and Nigerian governments have not reacted to the publication published on the same day Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta will be at the White House.
