Obama Brings $1B Gift for Kenyan Entrepreneurs
Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta introduced the U.S. president, whom he described as a great friend to the African continent.
Obama greeted the summit saying "Niaje Wasee," Kenyan urban slang for "how are you."
"It is wonderful to be back in Kenya. I am proud to be the first U.S. president to visit Kenya," Obama said in his opening remarks. "This is a personal thing for me, my family came from these parts and I have relatives and family here."

He then quickly got down to business, announcing to the gathering of entrepreneurs and investors that the U.S. had secured more than $1 billion in investiment for new businesses around the world, following up on a promise made at last year's summit in Morocco.
Did he visit his brother in his mud hut?
The founders were wise men and rejected citizen at birth that Hamilton suggested in favor of the more stringent natural born citizen to avoid anyone born with multiple citizenships, like Obama. He told us he was born a British subject as a result of his foreign national father.
Natural born citizens are naturally citizens because they have only one citizenship.
Its nice Obongo visited his birthplace.
His grandmother said she was there when he was born in Kenya.
Her word is good enough for me.
Whenever Trump goes to Europe, Obama is close behind to try and destroy anything he does. This is just a little side trip from that.
Okay, okay, okay, Kenya, you drive a hard bargain, but the US will forgo the two goats and a chicken and you can just keep him...Better yet, will you give two goats and chicken if you keep him...Deal.
Even if he was born in Hawaii, he is still not a natural born citizen.
People born with multiple citizenships are not naturally Americans.
Natural born citizens are naturally citizens because they only have one citizenship.
You mean, the guy that got your mom pregnant, then ABANDONED you both? That "father"?
He’s there looking for his birth certificate.
GIMME THAT AGAIN: where did the Halfrican’s sister get the money to launch her sports and training center?
Quick. Lock the gate. Revoke his passport. Yes, I am dreaming
I hope he stays there.
My thoughts, too. WHO is giving Kenya $1 billion?? We, the taxpayers??? If so, why is Obama over there presenting the money? HE IS NOT pRESIDENT ANYMORE
“Its nice Obongo visited his birthplace.”
Right you are. The headline SHOULD have read: Obama visits his native Kenya . . .
If anyone protested that headline, then they could run a correction on page 37B next Saturday.
Funny how that happens. It's probably just an innocent coincidence (sarc)
Is it too much to ask that they keep him?
I’m rootin’ for the lions and/or tigers and/or bears .. ohmy !
