Two of the Chibok schoolgirls who escaped from Boko Haram captivity in 2014, Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu, read a letter applauding U.S. President Donald Trump during a recent visit to the White House.

The White House released more photos of the girls on Saturday, saying during their visit, Joy and Lydia “read the President a letter about their experience”.

On the night of April 14, 2014, Boko Haram terrorists attacked the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno.



An excerpt of the letter is below:

“Mr. President, we urge you to keep America safe and strong.

“We know that some people are trying to discourage you.

“Do not be discouraged. You are right to keep American safe and strong.

“Not only for America. But for the world.

“If America is not safe and strong, where can people like us look for hope, when there is danger?

“Finally, we urge you to keep making America prosperous.”

Trump and his daughter, Ivanka, hosted the Chibok schoolgirls during their visit, the White House said.
