“As we stand together with our Irish friends, I’m reminded of that proverb … And this is a good one. This is one I like, I’ve heard it for many many years, and I love it,” Trump said.
“Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue. But never forget to remember those who have stuck by you,” he quoted the proverb.
According to a report by Ventures Africa, Google checks later revealed that President Trumps ‘favourite proverb’ is part of a poem.
It came from a poem written by a Nigerian budding poet, Albashir Adam Alhassan.
