Multiple posts shared thousands of times on Facebook claim that the United States has officially declared Nigeria a “terrorist and unstable nation”. They also allege that US President Donald Trump has “rejected” a new arms deal with the West African country. The claims are false: Nigeria has not been designated a terrorist state and Trump in 2018 overturned an arms embargo imposed by his predecessor Barack Obama.
