African Union, African UN envoys demand Trump apology after vulgar comment

In a private White House meeting on Thursday (Jan. 11), President Donald Trump reportedly remarked that Haiti and African nations are "sh*thole countries". "I think President Trump is racially ignorant and racially uninformed". He did so after Mr. Trump tweeted a denial, saying that he used "tough" language but "not that language".

The African Union responded to President Donald Trump's description of African nations as "shithole countries." .

Meanwhile, the republican of Haiti says it is "deeply shocked and outraged" by President Donald Trump's reported vulgar remark on migration calling it "racist".

The remarks, Durbin said, were "vile, hate-filled and clearly racial in their content". Trump denies using the word "shithole" including towards Haiti, which is marking the eighth anniversary of a devastating natural disaster.

And other Trump backers said the president's remarks show he's aligned with a long-standing conservative push to reshape immigration policy into a merit-based system rather than one based on family ties or admitting those from countries beset by poverty. In Kenya, East Africa's economic hub, political activist Boniface Mwangi pleaded: "Please don't confuse the. leaders we Africans elect with our attractive continent". "Leaders who actually cared about their people would do exactly that".

"We can solve the DACA issue, but we've got to have some structural changes to how people come into the country", Senator Perdue said in the TV interview.

The ambassadors did not consult their governments before issuing the resolution, he said, adding that some could now expect to receive phone calls from their capitals because of the text's strong tone.

"Given the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, this statement flies in the face of all accepted behavior and practice", said spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo. He also noted the insensitivity of its timing, coming the same week as the eighth anniversary of Haiti's 2010 natural disaster, which killed more than 200,000 people.

According to them, Trump's statement was "racist" and demanded that the American President render an apology to the labelled countries. Robert Chiponda, a communications consultant in Lusaka, said he never took Trump seriously. Made up by Dems. Trump wrote, "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians". He has also considered recording all his meetings to prevent similar controversies in the future.

Former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power has shared the statement on Twitter, saying: "Whoa".

Earlier, the 55-nation African Union condemned the remarks, while Botswana and Senegal hauled in the United States ambassador to complain.
