African countries ask for Trump apology

The organisation representing African countries has demanded that US President Donald Trump apologise after he reportedly called nations on the continent “shitholes”.

The group’s mission in Washington DC expressed its “shock, dismay and outrage” and said the Trump administration misunderstood Africans.

The US leader made the alleged remark in a Thursday meeting on immigration. But Mr Trump has denied using the language reported.

He has been backed by two Republicans who were at the White House meeting, but Democratic Senator Dick Durbin said Mr Trump called African countries “shitholes” several times and used “racist” language.

On Friday, Mr Trump on Friday tweeted that his language he used at the private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration legislation had been “tough”.

But he added that the words attributed to him were “not the language used”.

What did the African Union say?

It said the “remarks dishonour the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity”.

It added: “While expressing our shock, dismay and outrage, the African Union strongly believes that there is a huge misunderstanding of the African continent and its people by the current Administration.

“There is a serious need for dialogue between the US Administration and the African countries.”

The pan-African grouping represents 55 member states throughout the continent. It succeeded the Organisation of African Unity – which originated in the decolonisation struggles of the early 1960s – in 2002.

What exactly did Trump say?

The remarks were allegedly made when lawmakers visited him on Thursday to discuss a bipartisan proposal that would impose new restrictions on immigration but protect the so-called “Dreamers” – hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the US illegally as children – from deportation.

Mr Trump was said to have told them that instead of granting temporary residency to citizens of countries hit by natural disasters, war or epidemics, the US should instead be taking in migrants from countries like Norway.

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” the Washington Post quoted him as saying.

Mr Durbin said that when Mr Trump was told that the largest groups of immigrants with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) were from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti, the president responded: “Haitians? Do we need more Haitians?” BBC News

  • Hahaha that fun apology for telling the Truth hell no Trump won’t even do that he is on point coz Africa is a Shithole because of leaders who over stayed there welcome who abuse people because of greed!!!

    • It is actually the African leaders who mad Africa a shithole

    • Yeah he is rite Trump 100%

    • What do u find in a shithole? SHIT hanti. This pig Trump is jus referring to Africans as shit

    • But its Truth coz Africa is a failed Continent because of our leader!!!

  • Ngatigadzirisei nyika dzedu pane kuva ma cry babies

  • I think African should do one of 3 thing’s…
    1. Impose sanctions on America so that Africa shows its… https://t.co/uMdgUiTvgZ

  • Apologize for saying the truth?

  • To what end?

  • Boring story

  • No need for an apology lets go back home and work hard against the shithole our countries are in because of bad corrupt leaders and dictators too.

  • Am from the southern shithole, he ddnt do anything wrong. I jus wonder wat Robert mugabe wud have said if he was still in power

  • Although I don’t support what Trump said ,In other words he is right& thanx to our former dictators who took our once beautiful continent to the dark ages.With no infrastructure,poverty,no currency& over 90percent unemployment who would really say things here are ok?

    • We are back to stone age era Victor, no more tarred roads, drinking dirty water wat a shame!!!

    • Eish Ann I love my motherland but right now we are really in a shithole lol!

  • Even if he apologise will it change the fact… just wondering.

  • No need to apologise.Africa is the richest continent on earth but look at how black shithole leaders like Museveni,Mugabe,Kabila Paul Biya,Nguema destroyed their nations because of greediness.They cannot dream life outside state-house.

  • african leaders must get their shit in order …

  • does his apology change anything. I think its high time we unite n do away with them

  • Trump has a point he called a spade a spade just look around and tell me u are not in a shithole continent

  • Truth hurts man

  • Only Botswana 🇧🇼 can properly ask for apology from Trump. The rest countries keep quiet

    • Barbaric thoughts. What the rationale behind such mockery pal

    • yaar , l have seen much developments in Botswana under the ruling of Mr Ian Khama , he is a great leader indeed , he has done a lot of changes interms of infrastrature development activities , although some of the mines ar closed due to sabotages in the business community , there is change in Botswana comparing to countries like Zimbabwe , we have destroyed all the economic resources left by the British living the country on its knees

    • Trump mean it

    • Michael Kwangwa let’s get the facts right. The subject is about Trump’s inflammatory comments about the entire Africa not prosperity of Botswana. Make that clear. Secondly Botswana is not the prefect of Africa, it does not speak for the entire continent. If Botswana doesn’t find Trump’s comments revolting then let those who are offended express their distaste. Trump has always been a symbol of divisions, hate and extremism is you like . He has become so unbalanced that even his own aides questioned his mental state, and yet we got you deviating from the subject starting to preach about one individual and his nation. As a Zimbabwean l believe you so educated to know the difference l mean here

    • Are you normal , whats special about other monkey ?.

    • Are you normal , whats special about other monkey ?.

  • The guy is being persecuted for saying the truth.

  • WARS VOTE RIGGING TEMPERING WITH WITH CONSTITUTIONS DICTATORS ETC. AFRICA MEND YOURSELF

  • What apology?

  • Why he have to apologise? He have said the truth

  • Is he lying?

  • Whether shithole or not, trump has no right to tell us that, he’s a son of a bitch

    • Trump is actually the shithole in a nut shell. I wonder people are even supporting being called SHIT. If Africa is a shithole then watever stays in a shithole is SHIT which i am not so FUCK TRUMP

    • Am an African but Trump is right, Africa is ruled by CORRUPT dictators stalling development

    • Wise wise you are an idiot

    • He thinks Trump may read his coments and give him an American visa. Wise Wise how can you honestly succumb to such an insult?

  • For those who say the guy said the truth. Yes it’s the truth who doesn’t know the state of affairs in Africa? But the issue here is his choice of words. This is not a wrestling ring. Such words coming from the president of such a great nation. Maybe you haven’t seen and heard what Americans themselves are reacting to those remarks

    • You’ve just managed to put it exactly how I am feeling about all this. As a president he should have come up with a better choice of words in a constructive way. What he said is correct. It’s just his choice of words as a head of state.

    • True brother the man lacks diplomatic etiquette

    • I would wish madam “Stop It” was the first lady there too😂😂😂

    • I would wish madam “Stop It” was the first lady there too😂😂😂

    • Is it true that America can do without Africa or another country

    • Is it true that America can do without Africa or another country

    • Not true bro. The guy is jus reckless he jus has too much pride because of his own financial status but he’s doing more damage to the nation

    • Not true bro. The guy is jus reckless he jus has too much pride because of his own financial status but he’s doing more damage to the nation

    • Constructive way or words does not make anyone react, Spot on Mr Trump

    • But the fact remains him as JD might not care but America as a nation still has vast interests in those “Shithole” countries

    • Lol truth hurts. It’s called brutal honesty. He’s said what Americans already knew.

    • We wait and see if they give him a second term. Americans knows very well what implications this has to them as a nation. We used to have our own president who used to talk this so called brutal truth but only to the detriment of the nation

    • I will rather have a man who openly resents me and is honest about it, than one who fakes his love.

    • Africa it’s self lackes self respect why would Trump respect people who kill one another SA phobia burning a woman and 2 boys with fire , how do you give people like that respect?

  • He calls them “shithole” countries, right? But the next thing you see USA embassies in those countries. Hypocrisy.

  • Trump shouldn’t apologize, Africa and Africans should build their citizens and Nations stop looting your and impoverishing your people. Trump never apologize.

  • this demagogue!!

  • Some people here are pathetically retarded. When this dickhead called Trump mentioned Africa as shithole it wasnt only directed to the so called dictators. Its me and you entirely included. I dont see any reason at all to regard him as right….. Nomatter how true it sounds TO HELL WITH HIM. His head is the shithole

    • But those who represent me and you are the most affected.

    • Get facts right baba. Whites dont like blacks and you cant leave room for ecxeptions. So you think, if Trump calls your father a piece of shit what then does he call you?…..Son of a what? Of course shit… Which eventually qualifies you as shit

  • He’s totally wrong, he must choose his words nicely. It’s an insult to the African continent

  • Apology to who fix your problems africa

  • This arrogant boy can inflict more pain where it hurts.He can’t apologize, just wait for more bombs

  • Honourable Trump pliz withdraw your statement

  • Shame on those Africans who are supporting wht Trump said

    • Trump told a painful hard fact. Africa is ruled by selfish, CORRUPT morons bent on enriching themselves and consolidating to hang on power for life

    • Then why persecute those who worked hard to provide better conditions for their citizens eg Gaddafi why ???? Why sponsor terrorism why supply arms to African countries and fuel tensions ???? Americans preach democracy yet in their own yards do they practice it ?no they don’t but they fund organisations wc preach this rubbish to us Africans so tht they may impede development ,maintain chaos and loot …he says africa is a shit hole but at the same time they want it to remain like tht so tht they may get cheap resources in return they sell expensive weapons and fund terrorism so tht we may kill one another

    • Fuck him

    • Those who named you wise wise they didn’t kno wht they where doing

  • JUST GIVE HIM PERSONAL SANCTIONS IN ALL AFRICAN COUNTRIES..

  • No apology,

    They should channel their energy to develop the third world countries and not sit and wait for apology

  • As a president he should have come up with a better choice of words in a constructive way. What he said is true. It’s just his choice of words as a head of state.

  • Trump is spot on

  • Tantamount to Israel making a molten calf out of their gold and bowing before the same artifact asking for manna…Africa has enough resources to become self reliant and stand on its own..our [email protected]#%hole is rich in resources that’s why they won’t leave it alone..Western policy towards Africa has never changed and won’t change,slavery, colonialism and neo colonialism, nothing new here.

  • Ingarege kunzi “shithole” how do you describe a country that bought luxury cars 4×4s kuda kupa madzishe when citizens are drinking rusty water and no medicals in hospitals just to buy votes.

  • trump is right its high time the shitholes stop begging from his country .they are also tired of the shithole dictactors begging daily

  • Trumb is leading a shithole nation full of all evil and gays so there is nothing admire on his nation, what does it help you to have all earthly benefits while a long period of your living soul going to suffer the endless hell

    • Am an African but Trump has improved American economy better than his predecessor so he is right

  • The so called #African_representatives should keep shut their #shithole_mouth… You’re always teaming up to #attack people but never teaming up to #build the so called Africa you claimed to be representing… #rubbish

  • yes he said it #Truth need to be told

  • A point is a point and its too sturbon when its attacking you.Ask your self why most people do their recognised degrees outside Africa.

  • Iyi mboko iyi

  • Trump must apologise …hahaha hatisi vana vake vaanotuka xaa

  • What’s wrong with this man?

  • Are they now begging him to apologise!!! What sad state of affairs.

  • If Africa feel offended lets sanction America and recall all our embassies and close theirs we deport all Americans and they so to all Africans and see who suffers the most kkkkkkk

  • With all due respect Mr President sir as the face and voice of the United States you are an embarrasment and a disgrace of the Oval office. There is no truth in generalities only stigmatisation. Not all whites are bright and clever some are just morons who happen to be born there. The riches you brag about in your land came from African slaves sweat lest you forget that you pillaged and plundered us and still do. It is fair to be factual about us rather than fictional. There isn’t a black problem in this world only a white.

    • Trump is right, we are being ruled by CORRUPT dictators

    • And its them who nature dictators through the CIA. If a leader dances to their tune no matter how corrupt they turn a blind eye. They supported Mobutu while he plundered Congo wth them. Trump is just a hypocrite and the likes of your ilk. You cant fool all the people all the time. Be wise Mr Wise

  • Africa presidents are a bunch of USELESS CORRUPT dictators stalling development except for Ian Khama of Botswana

  • Trump is right we don’t need apolog

  • Trump is right we don’t need apolog

  • All countries in Africa except Botswana, are shitholes. I wont apologise for tht

  • All countries in Africa except Botswana, are shitholes. I wont apologise for tht

  • Facts are sturbon well come to the world of truths

  • Facts are sturbon well come to the world of truths

  • Even if he apologize would that change his opinion let him be with his opinion

  • Even if he apologize would that change his opinion let him be with his opinion

  • If Africa is a shithole, then America should remove all its companies in the continent.

  • although its unfortunate for this stupid man to utter such words, its equally unfortunate for our African leaders to create situations tht cause their respective citizens to flock to such countries in search of employment or better means of living, instead of crying to seek apology from trump, they should instead try to seek remedy to those miserable situations they’ve caused and still causing!

  • #wearenotshitholes

  • America is built in the blood and tears of sons and daughters of Africa

  • shithole means wt

  • The truth hurts…Shit holes ,we talking about South Sudan,Somalia,Zimbabwe and other countries with hot headed military guys masquerading as presidents

  • Ndosaka Mugabe aizoita masimuka tienzane nedzimwe nguva.

  • I think it’s mostly the diasporans who have a score to settle with trump.the man just said the truth. Instead of being angry at trump let’s all go back home and rebuild our African countries and leave trump with his America

  • Thank you Mr Trump

  • Africa deserves your respect mr hwamanda

  • Kkkkkk anoda mugabe uyo

  • Dear Donald Trump,

    I find it extremely hard to call you “President Trump” because sadly, you neither act like a president nor speak like one. But that bit, I will let the Americans deal with.

    I don’t expect you to read this because I suspect that your daily reading quota doesn’t exceed the 140 characters allowed on twitter. I’m hoping, though, that some henchman near you will have you know what I think.

    Unlike the Government of Botswana that responded to your latest blurt decisively and immediately, yesterday, my government, the government of Zambia has a new minister of foreign affairs whom I suspect he is still doing handovers, and most likely, completely unaware that his country has been insulted. So, I’ve taken it upon myself to respond – though, to be clear, I do so in my individual capacity as a citizen of a country in Africa.

    I’m not writing to persuade you to apologise, withdraw your remarks or change for the better. None of these things are possible in Trumpdom. So, I have only two messages for you, and I will get to them in a minute.

    Not surprisingly, two days ago, your undiplomatic mouth, once again, succumbed to the biddings of an unenlightened mind to describe Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as “shithole countries”.

    I wanted to write you a dazzling list of rebuttals. I wanted to stun you with facts and figures about the beauty, energy of Africa and the courage of my own compatriots. I also wanted to help you understand some of our history. For example, since we’re talking about shitholes and the people who dig them and then shit in them for centuries, I wanted to tell you about something called “the trans-Atlantic slave trade”. I wanted to introduce you to the long list of Africans who have won the Nobel Peace Prize, including Nelson Mandela with whom you insidiously claim to have had a “wonderful relationship”. But doing so would pander to your ridiculous instincts. Instead, I have something else to tell you.

    First, there are no shithole countries in this world. Instead, what we have are shithole issues in every country, including the United States of America. My, country, for example, is busy grappling with one shithole issue (literally), right now, called cholera. Your country, on the other hand is busy grappling with the shithole issue occupying the White House.

    Mr Trump, any president who lies publicly to his nation 113 times in 7 months and defends the lies is a shithole president. Any president who idolizes despots like Putin, Erdogan and Duterte is a shithole president. Any president who is narcissistic, self-absorbed, and selfish enough to constantly seek glamor and adulation, showing off your riches but is afraid to release his tax is a shithole president. Any president who demeans women as if they were simply objects to play with for personal pleasure is a shithole president. Any president who enjoys insulting women that he doesn’t like, using vulgar language to describing their faces and looks, and never shy away from being rude and abusive to any woman who dares challenge his abrasive and loathsome behavior is a shithole president. I can go on and on, Mr. Trump, but in case you don’t get it, you are that president. A shithole president.

    Second, you are a racist. You are the gutter-most uber-cracker. A genetic miracle bringing together the entitled ignorance of a modern billionaire with the owl-killing, witch-burning superstition of a medieval hovel-dweller. Your racism is ancient and obnoxious. It makes me sick. It whispers to me the way Kellyanne Conway whispers to you in that dream you keep having, the one where she’s only 5cm tall and she’s trapped inside a Big Mac and begging you to eat more carefully.

    And now that you know what you are, it’s time to own it. Embrace your nature, own your crackerhood, and all the anxiety and complexity will just slip away. No longer will you be forced to use politically correct euphemisms like “shithole countries”: instead, you can just say “no blacks”. No longer will you have to talk about countries like Norway: rather just say “Aryans only”.
    Donald, the whole world knows what you are. It’s time you knew it, too. Oh, and just as a by the way, please look carefully at your picture below and tell me which hole you think your mouth resembles most?

    Have a shithole weekend.

  • To some of us who are HIGHLY PROUD AFRICANS,asking for an apology is absolute snivelling bullshit.He meant what he said.Therefore if you extract by pressure an insincere apology,whats the point?If Arsehole TRUMP insults us,the best solution is to tell him to go kiss his ass.

  • Apa dzimwe shasha dzichangobva kundomunhanzwa

  • Asking Trump for an apology is like trying to squeeze blood frm a stone which is impossible as yu only get hurt worse inreturn

  • Don’t even hold your breath muchifunga kuti he’s going to apologize because as far as I know Trump has never said sorry for anything.

  • They haven’t apologised for slavery and colonialism…what makes you think he will apologise for this one?

  • We are shithole cntries for real

  • Mugabe dzoka Trump uya atanga fti

  • He is right I don’t see any offence of saying that

  • We don’t need his apology

  • Until these African leaders become democratic they will remain shitholes

  • To late to are apologise

  • Why would he apologise when bad governance is the order in Africa. Bad governance chitori chi guy.

  • Very dirt or unpleasant places

  • If u dream of him apologising u better wake up and apologize…

  • Write a comment…Correct i dont believe in ganging up to ask for an apology!He meant what he said and you cant change that.About time Africans develop their own nations!

  • These African countries in denial need a nine inch boot up their behinds. Africa is and continues to be a shithole. Trump is just brave enough to call it as it is

  • Same same lk Tony Blair

  • It’s a reflection of how all Europeans think about us. Ndopaunonzwa president achichemera restoration of relations with such bigots

  • I personally will not accept such kind of an apology.it wasn’t said by mistake but intentionally

  • Trump is suffering from oral diarrhoea and I wish madam Grace was there to tell him STOP IT!!!!

  • Marcus Garvey Lives

    There are very few African countries that can challenge Trumps assessment of them as shitholes. African leaders are a disgrace. They are at once greedy, uncouth, corrupt and generally incompetent. Anything they touch turns to shit. That is the reality unpleasant as it is to admit.

  • Sons and daughters of the pigs bull shit

  • I like this guy alot, his harsh comments hurts, especially those involved in corruption activities, but he must take action to end all that bullshit, coz he runs a powerful nation

  • We Africans may not like Trump’s crude language but facts on the ground proves him true.

  • Their is no point for any apology, what do u call a country where there are incessant killing, yet the leaders have to be push to condem it, but when one of their child falls out of a bike the elites began to send there sympathize mgs. what do u call a country where the people are dieing of stavation, and sickness’s cos of failure of govt, yet the present admission is talking of second term.

  • Trump is an idiot wat more do u want

  • Has he apologized? Effort in futility. Let rethink and take ourselves and countries out the shitholes.

  • I ddnt expect tht frm him bt his statement is justifiable.The continent endowed wth all natural resources bt look at us we r suffering only the elite squandering all the resources by themselves

  • Apologizing for telling the truth?

  • Because our brothers built America now they are shitholes

  • Because our brothers built America now they are shitholes

  • It is sad to hear that mr trump has a attitude problem his mouth works faster than his brain sorry my feow American friends stay blessed .

  • Wow. How about corrupt African leaders apologise for getting over a billion African citizens ridiculed because of their incompetencies. Is it not fact that corruption has and is destroying Africa. Who should apologise here? We have Africans in Asia, in Europe and America who are there not for their love of foreign lands, but to escape hunger, war, persecution, poverty, etc. Is that a thing to be proud of…… fix this mess called Africa, then we will have the right to demand apologies.
    Africa has the largest mineral reserves, yet it’s the poorest continent. My blood boils at the very thought.

  • How do you force someone to apologise? He just told you what he sees in you and u want to force him to lie to you? At least now you know what kind of a hole you are and if anything, try and make a change.

  • African leaders should apologize to their people not asking Trump to apologize for speaking the truth! We have shithole presidents like Kabila clinging to power, and the shithole in Uganda. In Malawi there is another shithole who is the most corrupt president in the world. No visible development apart from stealing money and increasing taxes in Malawi.

  • Apologizing for saying the truth???
    Africa is indeed a cradle of artificial shitholes,doctored by foreign continents &implemented by the so called ‘African leaders’

  • let’s work hard to fill all the shitholes in our countries otherwise we wl end up being the shit in the holes

  • Same to you mr Trump,

  • So is it acceptable that u talk shit and simply say i apologize simple

  • Why apologies for telling the truth.Nearly all
    those countries demanding an ” apology” are happy to accept American Aid money because , hey , you would you believe it, they have been run into a state of total destruction by years of bad government, dictatorship and internal tribal conflict.Stop feigning insult to deflect from the truth of such a statement, and start putting that sort of energy into sorting your countries out.

  • SO many people have fled shit holes like Zimbabwe to countries that would accept them. Australia. New Zealand and the like. That Trump would deny people the opportunity to do what so many of my countrymen have done, because Zimbabwe is in Africa, is racist and should be apologised for. Those that have fled Zimbabwe have by and large made a positive contribution to the nation’s that have taken them in. Of course there are exceptions but there always are. I know of Engineers in Australia, farm workers and Doctors in South Africa and Entrepeneurs and lawyers in the UK. All doing their bit and making their new homelands better places to live. Some are doing so well that they have even forgotten their roots and would deny others their chance to improve their lives and those of their families. I don’t think the Trumps went over in the Mayflower.
