Trump Said Buhari Is So Lifeless - Financial Times by LordVarys: 7:12am On Aug 27, 2018
Donald Trump will welcome Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta to the White House on Monday for what will be only the second one-on-one meeting the US president has held with an African leader since he took office last year.

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.

Advocates of closer US-Africa ties hope his encounter with the younger, more urbane Mr Kenyatta, 56, will breathe fresh life into a relationship with a region that Washington is seen to have neglected as other countries, notably China, develop ever-closer trade and investment ties with the continent.


Under Emmanuel Macron, France is also trying to reset its relationship with its former colonies in Africa and deepen commercial ties with bigger economies in the Anglo sphere, such as Nigeria and South Africa.

“Trump likes chemistry,” said a person in touch both with senior US administration officials and the Kenya delegation preparing for Monday’s meeting. “Africa has never been high on his radar but if the big guy likes you he’ll find a way to make things work.”

No wonder Nigeria has also become lifeless
Truth be told Buhari was extremely lifeless and dull during his visit to Trump ., he couldnt comprehend simple questions nor could he answer them, Donald Trump has to start even helping Buhari answer questions thrown at him just to save his visitor from being embarassed , the only time Buhari lit up and was able to answers questions was when he was asked about killer herdsmen , at that point the dullard suddenly sprang to life and started defending the killer herdsmen like he was their paid attorney... This is the kind of lifeless character some zombies want us to re elect...God forbid

Trump is a honest man. He spoke what everyone knows about Buhari.

I watched their joint press conference. Buhari could hardly mutter a coherent statement and could not think on his feet.

Is it not an open secret that Buhari is a sick ill-educated geriatric coupist lacking the basic sense of rational thinking?

It is a thing of wonder how an obtuse ill-educated object that should be a specimen in a museum is presiding over a country where professors are already retired at his claimed age.

Sahelian goblin. His handlers did a good job barring him from making impromptu speech.

Ofcourse Trump didn't lie. In a country of 200 million people, some people chose to elect a certified illiterate that knows nothing other than cow-herding.

Trump has been known to use harsh words in describing individuals largely because he thinks highly of himself. We all know Buhari is a man of few words and will not speak unless spoken to also because of his military background. Two different individuals of course.

Fake News.
President Trump was very impressed by the inspiring personality, the dignity and respect president Buhari displayed.

You referred to general Buhari as "Nigeria's ailing 75-year-old". Sufficient enough to know where you stand.

Keep in mind the general is well and he will be reelected for a 2nd term.
Jonathan Goodluck will be invited and be given a seat
in the very first row , so he can watch the ceremony
from a close distance as a FORMER president. grin grin grin

Which military background? I guess the Oxford product like Ojukwu were not in the same military? Was Buhari ever qualified to be in the military, because he never even had ordinary school certificate? Buhari is not supposed to be in circulation of normal people because it takes even an alien to understand his spoken English language. Buhari is a disaster and an embarrassment that should have been avoided in 2015.
