CNN Confirms Donald Trump Spoke With Buhari On Phone Yesterday

The widely popular CNN has
affirmed the news of the phone conversation
between Presidents Buhari and Trump.
President Donald Trump and President
Muhammadu Buhari
President Donald Trump has been increasingly
chatting with other world leaders during his first
weeks in office. On Monday he turned his
attention to Africa.
Trump spent Monday morning calling two of the
continent's most prominent leaders, Nigerian
President Muhammadu Buhari and South African
President Jacob Zuma, to discuss combating
terrorism, trade relations and other issues.
According to Buhari's aide, Femi Adesina,
Trump assured the Nigerian president that the
US is ready to help obtain "a new deal in helping
Nigeria in terms of military weapons to combat
terrorism."
In a statement to CNN, Adesina also said,
"President Trump encouraged President Buhari to
keep up the good work he is doing, and also
commended him for the efforts made in rescuing
24 of the Chibok Girls and the strides being taken
by the Nigerian military."
In 2014 nearly 300 girls were kidnapped from a
boarding school in Chibok by terror group Boko
Haram. Most remain missing, although the
terror group released a group of them last
October in a deal brokered in part by Nigerian
authorities.
Trump also invited President Buhari to
Washington at a mutually convenient date.
Buhari, who congratulated Trump on his
election, is currently in London on an extended
break while he awaits the results of unspecified
medical tests.
After his call with Buhari, President Trump also
requested and completed a phone call with
South Africa's Zuma.
