African Nations Demand Apology from US President Donald Trump on his "Shithole" Comment

  • African Union, the organisation representing African countries, demanded an apology from the US President Donald Trump after he reportedly called African continent nations “shitholes” during a meeting on immigration. African Union’s mission in the US regarded the comment shocking, dismaying, and outrageous. While two republicans supported Trump’s comment, Democratic Senator Dick Durbin called the statement racist. Donald Trump admitted on Friday that his comment in a private meeting with lawmakers was “tough” and went on to say that the words attributed were not the actual language used by him. African Union stated that there is a serious need of dialog between the African nations and the US.
