President Trump held a joint press conference with Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari in the Rose Garden on Monday.
During the press conference US reporters were hoping to get the Nigerian President to trash President Trump.
It’s so predictable.
One reporter asked President Buhari if they discussed President Trump’s reported “sh*thole” comments referring to poor and corrupt Third World regimes.
The Nigerian President didn’t bite.
“I’m not sure about, you know, the validity of whether that allegation against the president is true or not. The best thing for me is to keep quiet.”
President Trump then added:
“We didn’t discuss it. And you do have some countries that are in very bad shape and very tough places to live in.”
A reporter asked the Nigerian president to respond to Trump’s alleged “sh*thole” comments.
The president said he didn’t know if the accusations were true and he did not bring it up.
