Donald Trump accused me of killing Christians
Buhari said that Trump posed the question in the heat of the farmers-herders clashes in the country’s north central region and the reprisal attacks involving Muslim and Christian communities in the north.
“I believe I was about the only African among the less developed countries the President of the United States invited.
When I was in his office, only myself and himself, only God is my witness, he looked at me in the face, he asked, ‘why are you killing Christians?’"
The President said that it took a lot of restraint on his part not to flare up and that he hoped his emotions on the day didn’t betray him. He said,
“I wonder, if you were the person, how you will react? I hope what I was feeling inside did not betray my emotion, so I told him that the problem between the cattle rearers and stagnant farmers, I know is older than me not to talk of him. I think I am a couple of years older than him".
