Donald Trump says friends are going to Africa to 'get rich'

Donald Trump says friends are going to Africa to 'get rich'”

Trump delivered the remark at a luncheon he hosted with the leaders of numerous 54 diverse nations on the African continent. The problem is, Nambia does not exist.

"In Guinea and Nigeria you fought a horrifying Ebola outbreak", he said.

He went on to praise health care advancements in the non-existent country of Nambia. And while Trump nearly certainly meant it as compliment, and even seemed to pause for applause, not one attendee clapped.

Unlike several other countries in West Africa previous year, Namibia was spared the deadly Ebola outbreak in 2016 that caused widespread panic, including in the United States.

Donald Trump addressed African leaders over lunch during the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday, and of course, he mispronounced one of the country's names.

"Africa has tremendous business potential", the president said. They are spending a lot of money.

"Africa has tremendous business potential", Trump continued, while hosting the leaders of Côte d'Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Namibia, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa and Uganda during the United Nations General Assembly in NY. "But it does, it has tremendous business potential".
