Trump noted that the country would do anything to get them as he pledged to send at least 200 ventilators to Nigeria.
Trump made the remark at a press briefing aired by Fox News on Wednesday.
Recall that the Minister for Information, Lai Mohammed, said that the United States President promised to send ventilators to Nigeria during a phone call with President Muhammadu Buhari.
“President Trump assured that the United States stand in solidarity with Nigeria in this difficult time and promised to send ventilators to support the country in its fight against the pandemic. President Trump also extends his best regards to the people of Nigeria”, the Minister said.
Trump confirmed the report at a briefing attended by Florida’s Governor, Ron DeSantis.
“Ron said one thing that was interesting. He talked about ventilators and that ventilators were going to be a disaster in Florida and not enough and we sent them thousands of ventilators. But in the meantime, you have thousands of ventilators that aren’t used and we’ll be able to send them probably to other countries,” he said.
“You’ll build up your stockpile because these other countries, Italy, France, Spain; we’re sending to Spain. I spoke today to Nigeria. They’ll do anything for ventilators. We’re going to send at least 200 ventilators to Nigeria; probably more than that”, Trump added.
