United States President Donald Trump has given what appears to be a shout out to Kenya and twitter is going wild. On a closer look, it really was not a shout out per se.

While defending a statement he made after a woman was killed on August 12, when a car ploughed into anti-racism protesters who were confronting white supremacists in the Virginia college town, Trump declared that he loves all the people…all the American people.

“I didn’t say I love you because you are from Japan, China, Kenya, scotland or Sweden….I love all the people of our country,”

“My speech said I love all the people of our country. I did not say I love you because you are black; or I love you because you are white; or I love you because you are from Japan; or you are from China; or you are from Kenya; or Scotland; or Sweden. I love all the people of our country,” President Donald Trump said Tuesday night during a 77 minute speech at the Phoenix Convention Center in Arizona as protesters gathered outside.

Mr Trump had bee criticised for waiting two days to explicitly condemn the white supremacists — described as “Nazis” by Virginia’s Governor — behind the rally.

On twitter Wednesday, opinions were divided. @Mkenya Muguruki said: A good sign that he is thinking about us in the same breath with Japan. Let’s pop our champagne.

Tito Njau wrote on Instagram: Was that a shout out or a shout in? He actually means he doesn’t like us. Watch closely.

Jonnah Anselimo says on Facebook: Asante Trump kwa kutukumbuka. Ngota tano!

Trump had not mentioned Kenya since he met with president Kenyatta in Italy at the G7 summit in Italy. Even after IEBC declared president Uhuru Kenyatta the winner of the August 8th election, it was a Whie House official who released a statement and not Trump himself.

However, on March 7th this year, Trump had a brief phone conversation with the Kenyan leader.
