Instead of playing along with this liberal media game, the Nigerian President looked back at the reporter and said he doesn’t trust the media reports because reporters have lied so much about President Trump.

Watch this exchange then share it everywhere so we can expose these media lies. 

Reporter: President Buhari, I want to ask you. You’re the first leader from sub-saharan africa to visit President Trump here at the White House. Did you address his reported comments from earlier this year when he reportedly used vulgar language to describe African Nations?

Pres. Buhari: Well, I’m very careful with what the Press says about others and myself. I’m not sure about the validity or whether that allegation against the President is true or not. So the best thing for me is to keep quit.

Pres. Trump: We didn’t discuss it. And you do have some countries that are in very bad shape and very tough places to live in. But we didn’t discuss it because the President knows me. And he knows where i’m coming from and I appreciate that.
