U.S President Trumps favourite quote is by a Nigerian writer

US President Donald Trump is said to have welcomed Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny to the White House quoting What he said was his favourite Irish proverb. 

Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue. But never forget to remember those that have stuck by you.

The thing is, the proverb which is a quote from a Poem isn’t Irish but was written by a Nigerian Banker called Albashir Adam Alhassan. 👇🏾
  

Perhaps Albashir should reconsider his career choice? A poem he wrote about 10 years ago is being quoted by the Number one Citizen of the world! Awesome, if you ask me.

Update 

So this poem that was supposedly misquoted by President Trump turned out to have been plagiarized by the Nigerian writer in question.

Another Nigerian writer, Elnathan John says Albashir must have’ lifted’ the poem from an old collection. He says that running it through a plagiarism checker would reveal that it was. He’s got proof too:


All I can say is that this saga  has the makings of a good story- there are definitely lots of twists and turns! Oh yeah and President Trump does know his onions afterall- he was right the whole time…
