AU ambassadors say Trump must apologise to Africans for 'racist' slur

AU ambassadors say Trump must apologise to Africans for 'racist' slur

President Akufo-Addo tweeted that Trump's reported language was "extremely unfortunate", adding: "We are certainly not "a shithole country".

Former president John Mahama has slammed controversial US President Donald Trump for describing African countries as shitholes.

Trump seemed to deny making the remark, but multiple senators from both parties that were in the meeting either confirmed or did not dispute it.

In 2009 Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, chose Ghana's capital Accra to set out his foreign policy goals for Africa in a speech in which he said he saw Africa "as a fundamental part of our interconnected world".

"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?" "I can say now, Donald Trump is a racist", she said. What this episode also does is shatter the endless euphemisms and dissembling that Trump and his allies have employed to obscure a related truth: That the nationalism at the core of Trumpism is heavily driven by a reactionary backlash to the current ethnic and racial mix of the US population - it is white nationalism, despite all the what-me-racist protestation to the contrary.

The US has about a little over 6,000 forces in Africa in about 53 different countries, where they focus on countering extremist groups and illicit activity, as well as peacekeeping, humanitarian aid and disaster response. Sanders said at the time that the president was simply thirsty, calling questions about his health "ridiculous". "I reject them and condemn them vigorously". I could write about the beauty of the island, the music and vibrant art, the majesty of the mountains, the crystalline blue of the water surrounding her, the resilience of the Haitian people, our incredible work ethic, our faith. Brinkley said Trump was the most racist president since Woodrow Wilson, who served from 1913 until 1921.

"I've said all along the president many times says what people are thinking", Republican Rep Jim Renacci, a candidate for Senate in OH, told Fox News.

Haiti's ambassador to the USA says he and the Haitian government "vehemently condemn" the president's remark.

Many in this prosperous Scandinavian country were already asleep, but several prominent Norwegians who were still online took to Twitter to vent their outrage and disgust, not only at Trump's vulgar language but at what many saw as a racially tinged insult.

A year earlier, Bornstein said in a December 2015 letter: "If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency". "I think President Trump is racially ignorant and racially uninformed". Lindsay Graham, suggested the reported remarks were accurate: "Following comments by the president, I said my piece directly to him".

President Trump has asked Congress for $18-B for the first phase of The Wall, for which Mexican officials have said they will not pay.

The president of El Salvador, Salvador Sanchez Ceren, tweeted that Trump's statement struck a blow "to the dignity of the Salvadoran people".

The state's top nation as a source of immigration is India.

"He said 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country".

On Friday evening, the USA ambassador to Britain hit back at Mr Trump for claiming the U.S. embassy's move out of central London was a bad deal.
