Africa Startled By Trump's Sudden And Vulgar Attention

Africa Startled By Trump's Sudden And Vulgar Attention

Norwegians have expressed solidarity with Haiti and several other African nations by saying they do not want to go to the U.S., describing it using the alleged words of Donald Trump as a "s***hole".

"I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", the senator said.

Trump's comments are extremely offensive to South Africa, said Jessie Duarte, a senior official with the ruling African National Congress.

"USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly", Trump tweeted. As top recipients of USA aid, some hesitated to jeopardize it by criticizing Trump, especially as his administration has sought to slash foreign assistance. Trump reportedly called those places "sh-ole countries" whose inhabitants are not desirable for USA immigration. But, now thanks in no small part to President Trump, we get to have real national conversations - passionate, messy, even angry ones - all the time.

"I'm sorry but there is no other word for this but racist", a spokesman in Geneva said. "I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", Trump said on Twitter Friday.

Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.), who was present in the meeting, condemned President Trump's remarks as "hate-filled, vile and racist".

Addis Ababa: Vulgar comments attributed to US President Donald Trump have caused outrage across Africa. Just last month The New York Times reported that in another White House meeting on immigration, he complained that Haitian immigrants "all have AIDS" and that once Nigerian immigrants had seen the United States, they would never "go back to their huts".

"The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' " he said, taking issue with the president's tweet.

Trump's comments were first reported by the, which said the group of nations referenced also included El Salvador.

Meanwhile, at least one more African leader spoke up on Saturday.

"Haitian-Americans, like Salvadoran and Nigerian Americans, are one of many immigrant groups that make up our country's mosaic", the letter reads.

"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", AU spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo tells The Associated Press.

As he campaigned for president in 2016, Trump told Haitian-Americans in Miami that they were "amazing people" who add "so much to our country".

In Senegal's capital Dakar, administrator Idrissa Fall said "we can not really say that he (Trump) is wrong".

It further called for the US President to issue an apology for the hurtful remarks not only to Africans but people of African descent across the globe.

Having had his reaction to Trump's remarks made public by Durbin, Graham felt little need to confirm or deny the reports himself.

There is a long history of the White House picking and choosing what to reveal about the commander in chief's health, said Barbara Perry, director of presidential studies at the University of Virginia's Miller Center. She said her father's life and work should be applied to the current moment, where racism has again come out into the open.
