African ambassadors to United Nations blast Trump remark as 'racist'

Bennie Garza | 14 January, 2018, 14:56

Donald Trump has denied making such utterances.

Ebba Kalondo, spokeswoman for AU Chairperson Moussa Faki, told AFP that Trump's statement "truly flies in the face of accepted behaviour and practice".

"It's an extremely upsetting statement", she added.

The African ambassadors issued the statement late Friday following an emergency meeting after Trump used vulgar language to reject an immigration bill, asking why the US would take in more people from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa.

Haiti's government said Trump's reported comments shows a "racist view of the Haitian community", while El Salvador sent a formal letter of protest to the United States saying Trump had "implicitly" accepted the use of "harsh terms detrimental to the dignity of El Salvador and other countries".

While Kalondo said the comments were "clearly" racist, she didn't believe they indicated a shift in the United States stance towards Africa.

A UN resolution demanding a retraction and an apology from Mr. Trump was fast-tracked at a United Nations meeting.

It said it would ask the second-in-charge of the USA embassy to explain Trump's comments on Monday.

The outcry over Trump's remarks dominated news coverage on Friday and has complicated efforts to reach a deal on immigration.
