AU Ambassadors Say President Trump Must Apologise To Africans For ‘Racist’ Slur

The organisation representing African countries has demanded that US President Donald Trump apologise after he reportedly called nations on the continent "shitholes".




The African Union mission in Washington DC expressed its "shock, dismay and outrage" and said the Trump administration misunderstood Africans.


The US leader made the alleged remark in a Thursday meeting on immigration.


But Mr Trump has denied using the language reported. He has been backed by two Republicans who were at the White House meeting, but Democratic Senator Dick Durbin said Mr Trump called African countries "shitholes" several times and used "racist" language.


On Friday, Mr Trump on Friday tweeted that his language he used at the private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration legislation had been "tough".


But he added that the words attributed to him were "not the language used".

Useless African leaders.. Very greedy mofos. They should continue to receive all the insult trump throws at them. If they're tired of bn ridicule let them develop their regions so that their youths will stop running to developed countries in the world.

As painful as it is. We should stop being hypocrites please. Africans thrive and prosper in Western climes. Better opportunities to excel. Our countries ARE whether we choose to admit it or not. That Cheeto face said it, is of course rude and totally undiplomatic, but the truth is, WE SAY THIS EVERYDAY. When u are queuing for petrol, or there is no light, or your uncle died for lack of REASONABLY BASIC healthcare. Rather than our hopeless leaders to be up in arms about this, they should use it as a wake up call to do better. We are good people, but oir leadership has made us disillusioned and weak. Fanta man only voiced out what we say daily.

While pride, national pride etc is good. There comes a time one must stop and analyze oneself. Being pointlessly defensive is not a wy forward.

Because the African male has no strategy. First it was the whites who raped Africa and built their empires, now a new set of conquerors are coming to get theirs. The black African male is completely useless in protecting his ppl or governing his nations justly and enriching the lives of the people. They only good for tribal wars and civil wars in their nations. Africa is in the state it is in because of the African man!

Some comments here are laughable. There are some places here that Abonema in Rivers State is finer than in terms of beautiful houses. There are some places here that do not have electricity. They have to use gen. How old is the United States? There are a lot of poor homeless people here. There are areas here where the Police dare not go in.
While it’s true that most of Africa remains underdeveloped thanks to all leaders, Trump has no right to be so blatantly racist as the President of the United States. Such hate filled comments will only lead the white supremacists and other white hate organizations to step up attacks on Africans. Immigrants have contributed so much to this economy. Like Speaker Ryan said, there are a lot of fine African Doctors here who work so hard. Our continent has a long way to go but nobody should look down on us. His parents immigrated here too.if they were treated the way he is treating immigrants now he wouldn’t be where he is now. Sad thing is, he says it and denies he said it. Thank God for Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois, who stood above others and stated to the media on camera that Trump indeed used those words and more. There’s no need for all this hate. Without immigrants, this country will also be a shit hole. Most of them are lazy and don’t want to work. Most do not even go to college. Look at the Asian population in colleges across this country. Look at the population of foreigners in the medical and law enforcement professions. My department is almost now largely made up of immigrants and they will wake up soon and say immigrants are taking their jobs but they cannot pass a simple drug screening and polygraph. Say no to hate.

Anony 18:42: You are correct on almost all the points raised. Yet, there's an African adage: if a mother doesn't first call a child a goat, it's impossible for an outsider to do same. Look around, the continent is blessed in human capacity including physical bounties of the earth below and above. Yet, its leadership including its followers pauperize her daily, yearly and thru generations. So, therein lies the "koko" of the matter. Imagine a situation in which public officials loot the treasury only to stash it away in Europe and America; Or marry more wives/ concubines and marinate in conspicuous consumption. Yet, their constituents lack even basic amenities even in 2018. How does one explain away such madness? Could Trump's 'shithole' comment be the catalyst that unfolds the expected change from Africa's leaders? Keeping my fingers crossed...QED@atm
