Trump and Kenyatta, in their joint statement, said they discussed a series of topics, including cooperation on terrorism and building trade and investment ties. "They don't say Merry Christmas anymore", he continued as the audience cheered.

The Kenyan officials could be seen staring and just smiling as their colleagues from the United States side jotted down notes during the trade talks. The meeting centred on trade, a Sh23 billion investment was sealed. We are here to renew that partnership. "You couldn't say Merry Christmas", Trump said.

And we do a lot of defense and security. "This November 6th election is very much a referendum on not only me, it's a referendum on your religion, it's a referendum on free speech and the First Amendment". "This is really great", said Trump. Not the first part, ' Trump said.

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

Uhuru and Trump then joined their aides in the cabinet room for expanded talks.

President Kenyatta termed his meeting with President Trump a big success, noting it cemented a relationship that was already strong between Kenya and the US.
