African Union demands Donald Trump apologise for 'sh**hole' comments

Share

A statement issued by the African Union Mission in Washington DC, USA, and copied to the Ghana News Agency expressed infuriation, disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by President Trump. I was very proud of him, it took courage for what he did.

Activists marched from the Toussaint L'Ouverture Monument to the Little Haiti Cultural Center waving signs that said "President Trump is a racist!", "Respect Haiti", and "We will not forget".

"It is disheartening because when I look at my parents that's not what I see, when I look at my parents I see hard workers who came here struggled, just to give us a better life", Jacques said.

"He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly", Durbin said. In his message, Mahama referred to speech made by Trump to African leaders at the United Nations in September wherein in which he had praised their nations - but also mistakenly referred to a nonexistent country called "Nambia".

And U.S. President Donald Trump unabashedly engaged in this plain, in-your-face, repugnant racism this week. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), according to CNN. "I've always believed that America is an idea, not definied by its people but by its ideals".

"All of you who over the last few years have uttered that exhausted, lazy, uninformed, uneducated response of calling me and others who point out racist behavior "racists, ' you know what you can go do?" Of course, he's denied it, and I'm sure the White House will elaborate on it later today if he said it I wish he hadn't.

And Haiti's USA ambassador told the BBC that Haitians are not "simply immigrants who come here to take advantage of the U.S".

Trump preceded that message with a tweet that simply said: "America First!"

He has since denied using the reported language.

On "The Situation Room" Friday, Ryan cited an unnamed "influencer" and "child and product of the sixties" who advocated that anti-Trump activists call various companies and talk about Trump's comments.

Haiti, which on Friday marked the eighth anniversary of the disastrous quake which claimed around 220,000 lives, also summoned the USA representative for an explanation. And to this day, as I'm talking to you, we have Haitians in universities who are professors here. "But, if you're saying somebody's from a s--hole country, to me it doesn't make sense". He has also considered recording all his meetings to prevent similar controversies in the future.

President Donald Trump's dismissal of Haiti and certain African countries with a vulgar expression has created a furor.
