Trump Says His Meeting With Buhari At The White House Was 'So Lifeless', Insists He Doesn't Want To Meet Such Person Again


The United States president Donald Trump has said his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari was “so lifeless”, Financial Times said on Monday.

This according to the report was shortly after a meeting between the two leaders at the White House on April 30 where they discussed issues bordering on fighting terrorism and economic growth. 

However, as Trump is set to welcome President  Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, Financial Times in an article titled  Africa looks for something new out of Trump claimed that the US leader described his April meeting with Buhari as ‘so lifeless’.

The paper added that Trump warned his aides that he never wanted to meet someone so lifeless again.

“The first meeting, with Nigeria’s ailing 75-year-old Muhammadu Buhari in April, ended with the US president telling aides he never wanted to meet someone so lifeless again, according to three people familiar with the matter,” the newspaper claimed.

Meanwhile, neither the American nor the Nigerian government has reacted to the report.
