President Trump, Kenyan President Kenyatta Speak on Trade and Terrorism

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had visited Trump on April and said that his meeting with Trump was sweet and would yield results on economy, security and anti-corruption in Nigeria.

Despite Trump's personal background and style, these religious leaders are mostly on the President's side.

Speaking to the BBC after his meeting with President Donald Trump, Uhuru said Africa had come of age and no longer looked to the world for aid but rather how to foster win-win partnerships.

Mr and Mrs Trump are earlier scheduled to welcome Mr and Mrs Kenyatta to the White House in a 10-minute ceremony commencing at 1:45 pm, according to the White House.

Vanguard had reported that Kenyatta would on Monday meet Trump at the White House to discuss issues affecting his country.

"We have a tremendous relationship with Kenya, we have terrorism, a lot of trade, getting bigger and bigger all the time", stated President Trump.

"You have people that preach to nearly 200 million people - 150 to, close, depending on which Sunday we are talking about, and beyond Sunday, 100, 150 million people", he said.

Kenyatta said he hoped Trump would share the wealth with his country. We're talking about a very major highway/roadway.

"We'll bring that over to Kenya", Trump joked. Kenya is the third highest recipient of USA security aid in sub-Saharan Africa, according to the Security Assistance Monitor. "We are here to strengthen that partnership", President Uhuru said.

Kenyatta has been trying to bolster his image following a crisis in which Kenya's Supreme Court overturned the August presidential election, citing irregularities, and the opposition boycotted the fresh vote. He'll host British Prime Minister Theresa May in Nairobi, Kenya's capital, on Thursday.
