Trump Sends 1,000 Ventilators To Nigeria by 2mercy: 4:25pm On May 22
United States President, Donald Trump said Thursday that he has sent 1,000 ventilators to Nigeria to help save lives from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Questioned on his claim of enough ventilators to share with other countries, after touring Ford Motor plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan, refitted to produce Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), he said: “We were just talking about we have a very big stockpile right now, and we building a bigger…we are helping a lot of other countries.

Nigeria, we just sent a thousand. We have various countries – France, Spain, we have a lot going to Italy, we have a lot going to probably 15, 18 countries. They’re calling us. We have the capacity to do this. Nobody else did.

“So, every state now has more than they need and our stockpile is totally full. We have a tremendous amount.

“So, now we’re really helping other countries where they’re losing a lot of people because they don’t have ventilators.”

Trump in a phone call to President Muhammadu Buhari, last month offered to assist Nigeria with some ventilators to tackle coronavirus.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, disclosed this during a briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on Covid-19.

It will only be used by the sick rich or politically connected. Covid19 in Nigeria is a rich man's disease that is making life difficult for the poor.

Ventilators that they will resell to private clinics and send the remaining to Aso clinic


TruthDefender:

Ventilators that Nigeria govt officials will share to their friends who have private hospitals, and sell the rest on the open market.

No be Nigeria again??
I tells you grin

I can picture Trump's manner of speech as he says,,


We have various countries – France, Spain, we have a lot going to Italy, we have a lot going to probably 15, 18 countries. They’re calling us. We have the capacity to do this. Nobody else did.

cool


Thank You President Trump, even if you talk anyhow like a overgrown orange orangutan you still helped us in our time of need,

Average ventilator cost $20,000USD to $50,000 USD 1000 pieces would cost $20m to $50m, Again President Convfefe, Hydrochloroquine President, Disinfectant President, Don the Con, Agent 45 has don it again, something which Obama would never do

Thank You president Trump.

I also wish the United states could also monitor how these ventilators are shared to ensure that it gets to where it ought to be, before some people would either embezzle or sell them or send them to their own private clinics. This is Nigeria, and i don't trust the government to do anything right.
