African Union: Trump 's***hole' remarks dishonor 'American creed'

Source: The Hill

The African Union is demanding an apology from President Trump after his vulgar remarks that the United States should not accept immigrants from "shithole" countries.

The group, which represents the 55 countries on the African continent, said that Trump's remarks "dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity," and that the administration has a "huge misunderstanding" of the continent.

Trump's comments were also condemned by a group of African ambassadors to the United Nations, who demanded a retraction and apology.

The group called the remarks "outrageous, racist and xenophobic" while thanking those Americans who had condemned the remarks.

Mods, please note: This is a separate reaction from the African Union, not the one reported on in an earlier LBN story.

1. Im glad to see some words.

Perhaps they will take action as well - there are other countries with which to partner economically and politically whose leaders won’t denigrate their countries.

2. Dear People of Africa/the World

This orange idiot does not speak for the majority of us and we apologize for this devastating display of the worst humanity offers.

We are working within our laws to change this mistake and remove those who agree with his hate filled world view.

He is deranged and still believes he is running a game show.

We are sorry!

America

3. They also ignore American complicity in causing extreme poverty and political disaster.

We have a long history of overthrowing democratically elected so-called leftists or allowing them to be overthrown (see Honduras for the most recent example under Obama) who wanted to upset the applecart, where American corporations exploited the people (fruit, rubber, various other commodities), in favor of the rights of the people.

Haiti is a particularly egregious example with the debt they were forced to pay for decades for their own freedom.
