Trump's remarks after meeting Uhuru

President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta arrive in Washington for talks with US president Donald Trump Sunday

"The meeting with President Trump was fruitful".

US President Donald Trump hailed the ties between the two countries as issues of trade, regional security, tourism, and investment featured prominently in that meeting.

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.

"The two leaders will discuss good bilateral relationships between the two countries and plans to boost among other sectors, security, trade and investment", State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena said in a statement to the press.

The New York Times offers a similar report.

David De Gea has the ball and chips it to Phil Jones at the corner of the 18 yard box. In the first half, zero corners, zero lateral free-kicks, zero frontal free-kicks.

Trump said Kenya and the U.S. would continue to work together to grow their partnership in trade, investments and security. "I hate to say it, if you were a stock, you'd be like, you're very plateaued", the president said, reportedly prompting laughter from his evangelical audience. We're talking about a very major highway/roadway.

"Kenya delegation to the United States will bring their notepads and pens out when they have to calculate their share of deals signed", joked one Twitter user by the name Karani Onsomu in reaction to the photos.

Political commentator John Githongo says the meeting will help Kenyatta's image after a crisis in which the Supreme Court overturned the August election, citing irregularities, and the opposition boycotted the fresh vote. Almost 100 Kenyan police officers have been killed since May 2017 in bombings and ambushes.

President Uhuru Kenyatta wrapped up his official visit to the USA with a message that Africa is open to mutually beneficial trade and investments with the world. He'll host British Prime Minister Theresa May in Nairobi, Kenya's capital, on Thursday.
