African ambassadors demand apology from Trump
The collective of African ambassadors to the UN has described his remarks as outrageous, racist and xenophobic.
JOHANNESBURG - With condemnations of US President Donald Trump from African leaders continuing, the collective of African ambassadors to the UN has described his remarks as outrageous, racist and xenophobic.
This comes after Trump questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador or countries in Africa using a vulgar term to describe them.
The US president reportedly made the remarks at a White House meeting on immigration last week.
The ambassadors are demanding an apology and retraction of the remarks from Trump.
Ghanaian ambassador to the UN Martha Pobee speaks on behalf of the African ambassadors.
“The African ambassadors are extremely appalled and strongly condemns the remakes attributed to the president of America.”
