"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.

"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".
