United States President, Donald Trump on Monday stirred controversy online after he referred to President Muhammadu Buhari as ‘Lifeless’
Trump made the statement shortly after a meeting between the two leaders on April 30, Financial Times reported on Monday.
Buhari, the first sub-Saharan Africa president to meet Trump since he was sworn in January 2017 as the 45th American president, was in the US for bilateral talks on Trump’s invitation.
The meeting, according to the Newspaper, ended with Trump saying he never wanted to meet someone as lifeless as Buhari again.
However, this has stirred divergent opinions online as some agreed with Trump calling for Buhari not to seek re-election in 2019.
