President Muhammadu Buhari, Monday, said he did not bring up President Donald Trump’s alleged shithole remark about African countries when the two presidents met because he was not sure he actually made the comment.
Buhari said this during the press conference with Trump at the White House.
He said, “I am not sure about the validity or whether that allegation against the President was true or not, so the best thing to do for me is to keep quiet.”
Trump came under fire early in the year after he reportedly called some African countries ‘shithole’ at a private White House meeting on January 12.
The US leader, however, denied making the comment and labelled his accusers as fake news peddlers.
