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.
