The White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, on a live press briefing confirms that President Donald Trump had phone calls with leaders of three African countries, including Nigeria, South Africa, and Tunisia.
Sean Spicer in his press briefing confirms before the White House press corp that President Donald Trump had phone calls with leaders of Tunisia, Peru, Nigeria, Columbia, and South Africa.
There has been several media speculations about Trump not making that important phone call to Buhari, though the briefing did not confirm whether it was between the Acting President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo or with President Muhammadu Buhari, who is in London, UK receiving medical treatment.
But the confirmation by the White House Press Secretary that there was a phone call between Trump and the leader of Nigeria among other world leaders has led to rest all the media speculations that such phone calls did not take place.
Sean Spicer also said the read out, which is the details of discussions of the phone call will be available shortly. That would bring to the fore the content of their phone discussion.
However, the White House’s website page for press statements where the readout of President Trump’s phone calls with foreign leaders are published has no update on the said interaction with President Buhari.
What’s more, the website is updated regularly, sometimes in real-time. For instance, the announcement of the opening of the White House visitors office was promptly put on the website after US First Lady Melania Trump made the announcement.
Also, Monday, Trump’s diplomatic meetings and engagements which including receiving the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were promptly uploaded on the website on Monday.
