Donald Trump Celebrates Religious Freedom with Evangelical Leaders at White House Dinner

Donald Trump Celebrates Religious Freedom with Evangelical Leaders at White House Dinner

The second agreement signed in the presence of President Kenyatta when he met business executives of leading USA companies meeting under the umbrella of the Business Council for International Understanding (BCIU), was a $ 5 million letter of commitment in financing to expand the distribution network of Twiga Foods and improve food security and agricultural wages in Kenya.

Kenyatta, who was reelected last July as the leader of one of Africa's largest economic and transportation hubs, is the son of the country's first leader, Jomo Kenyatta.

President Donald Trump on Monday welcomed the president of Kenya to the White House, where the two leaders talked trade, security - and Trump's accomplishments.

If the GOP loses control of Congress, he warned, "they will overturn everything that we've done and they'll do it quickly and violently, and violently".

Kenyatta says his country and the USA have signed two agreements that will allow American companies to invest $238m for projects in the African nation. One was for a 100-megawatt, grid-connected wind power plant south of Nairobi, and the other was a letter of commitment to expand Twiga Foods, a mobile-based food distributor, among other food-related projects.

But the law remains in effect after Congress failed to overturn it past year.

"We also discussed how to increase trade and investments between our two countries and how USA companies can help create jobs for our youth", President Kenyatta concluded. The group has intensified attacks in Kenya since Kenya sent troops into Somalia in 2011.

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.

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. "And we know that freedom is a gift from our Creator".

Dr Kiptoo told the Nation the group will also be charged with ensuring both sides benefit fully from the remaining years of Agoa, set to expire in 2025. And so, there will be discussions around this.

Juma, who met with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on August 23, called the United States the most "significant country in the world today".
