President Buahari To Meet With Trump At The White House

President Muhammadu Buhari is to visit the White House for a meeting with United States President Donald Trump, on April 30, 2018.

this was made known in a statement issued by the White House Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, where she announces that Trump will welcome Buhari to the Oval office later this month.
Sanders says Buhari and Trump will discuss economic reforms, fighting terrorism and ways to grow Nigeria's "role as a democratic leader in the region."
adding that the United States has a "deep and strong" relationship with Nigeria.
"President Trump looks forward to discussing ways to enhance our strategic partnership and advance our shared priorities: promoting economic growth and reforms, fighting terrorism and other threats to peace and security, and building on Nigeria's role as a democratic leader in the region,
"The relationship of the United States with Nigeria is deep and strong, and Nigeria's economic growth, security, and leadership in Africa will advance our mutual prosperity", Sanders said in her statement.
It won't be the first meeting between the two leaders since Buhari was elected president in 2015 Trump and Buhari had met earlier In September 2017 at a luncheon to honor selected African heads of States on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.
Trump came under intense criticism back in Nigeria in January of 2018 after it was reported that he referred to Nigeria and other third world countries as “Shithole”.
In December of 2017, the New York Times (NYT) reported that Trump said people live in huts back in Africa.
During a meeting at the Oval Office in June, Trump was quoted as saying immigrants from Haiti “all have AIDS”, Afghanistan was described as a ”haven of terrorists" and Nigerians living in the US were scoffed at by the US President for residing in huts back home.
“Forty thousand (migrants) had come from Nigeria, Mr. Trump added. Once they had seen the United States, they would never ‘go back to their huts’ in Africa,” the NYT piece read, quoting sources at the meeting.
