'Reprehensible & racist': African states respond to Trump’s alleged 's***hole countries' comment

African governments have slammed Trump’s alleged remark about “s***thole countries,” said to be targeting the continent. Local media also jumped in, with one outlet suggesting parallels between the White House and the KKK.

It comes after a Washington Post report, citing sources, said that Trump had referred to some African countries, as well as Haiti and El Salvador, as “s***hole countries” during a discussion about protecting people from those nations as part of a bipartisan immigration deal.

Responding to the alleged remark on Friday, the African Union (AU) told AP it was “frankly alarmed” by the comment. “Given the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, this statement flies in the face of all accepted behavior and practice,” AU spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo said. “This is particularly surprising as the United States of America remains a global example of how migration gave birth to a nation built on strong values of diversity and opportunity.”

Individual countries also chimed in, with Botswana releasing a statement that called the comment “highly irresponsible, reprehensible, and racist.” It said the country had summoned the US ambassador to “express its displeasure at the alleged utterances.”
“The government of Botswana is wondering why President Trump must use this descriptor and derogatory word when talking about countries with whom the US has had cordial and mutually beneficial bilateral relations for so many years,” the statement reads.

Uganda’s state minister for international relations, Henry Okello Oryen, called the comment “unfortunate and regrettable,” adding that he hopes African heads of state will respond during an African Union summit scheduled to take place later this month.

However, South Sudan was more restrained. “Unless it was specifically said about South Sudan, we have nothing to say,” government spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny told AP.

South Africa’s ruling African National Congress called the alleged remark “extremely offensive,” with the country’s deputy secretary-general pointing out that while the nation has its difficulties, the US “has millions of people out of work or without healthcare.” He went on to say that despite that fact, “we would not deign to make comments as derogatory.”

Meanwhile, South African opposition leader Mmusi Maimane called the remark “abhorrent,” adding that “the hatred of [former US President Barack] Obama’s roots now extends to an entire continent.”

Media outlets also jumped on board, with South African newspaper the Daily Maverick stating that “casual Friday at the White House is soon to include hoods and tiki torches at this rate,” in a reference to the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).

Some combined the alleged remark with a dose of sarcasm. “Good morning from the greatest, most beautiful ‘s***hole country’ in the world!!!'” South African Broadcasting Corporation anchor Leanne Manas tweeted.

The US television program ‘The Daily Show’ responded to the alleged remark by tweeting in reference to the show’s South African host: “As someone from South S***hole, Trevor is deeply offended by the president's remarks.”

Earlier on Friday, a spokesman for the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Rupert Colville, called Trump’s alleged comment “shocking and shameful,” adding that there was “no other word one can use but racist.”

If the Washington Post report is true, it wouldn’t be the first time that Trump has spoken negatively about Africa. In 2013, he tweeted that “every penny of the $7 billion going to Africa as per Obama will be stolen – corruption is rampant!”

Meanwhile, Trump tweeted on Friday that although he used “tough” language at the immigration meeting with lawmakers, “this was not the language used.”

No wonder Trump ditched his trip!
US tells tourists Britain is as dangerous as CONGO after president cancels his visit to London next month

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5266667/US-tells-tourists-Britain-dangerous-Congo.html




'Donald Trump was embroiled in a new row last night after Washington said the UK was as dangerous as countries he has described as ‘s***holes’.

Security advice issued by the State Department ranks Britain on a par with the Congo and Zimbabwe, with US travellers warned about ‘heightened risks to safety and security’.

It comes amid the continuing fall-out from Mr Trump’s decision to cancel a trip to London next month – and growing global anger over his reported remarks about the number of citizens of ‘s***hole’ countries in Africa and the developing world being allowed to enter America.

Under a new system, the US now divides countries into four levels of danger for its citizens.

Level 1 is deemed as safe as staying in America, while Level 4 means ‘do not travel’.

The UK is classed at Level 2, the same as the Congo, Zimbabwe and Algeria.

Under its advice for the UK, the State Department says its citizens should ‘exercise increased caution’ because of the threat of terrorism.

It says: ‘Groups continue plotting possible attacks in the United Kingdom… be aware of your surroundings when travelling to tourist locations and crowded public venues’.'

Need a place to stay? 'Shithole' is projected onto Trump's hotel in DC two days after his controversial comments about immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and Africa
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5268035/S-hole-projected-Trumps-hotel-DC-two-days-af.html




'The word 's***hole' - which President Donald Trump allegedly used to describe countries from which he does not want immigrants coming to the US - has been projected along with other messages onto his Washington, DC hotel.

Trump is said to have made the remarks - which he has denied but which a US Senator who was present confirmed - at a meeting with legislators, setting off a firestorm of criticism when they became public.

'NOT A DC RESIDENT? NEED A PLACE TO STAY? TRY OUR S***HOLE. THIS PLACE IS A S***HOLE,' read successive messages projected over the entrance of the Trump International Hotel in central Washington, according to videos posted on social media.

A flood of grinning poop emojis then stream out of the hotel's entrance as 'S***HOLE' appears in larger text above it.

Another clip shows the word 'S***HOLE' over the entrance along with an arrow pointing to the door.

The videos were posted on the Twitter account of Robin Bell, as well as on his website Bell Visuals, who has staged other projection protests and been likened to a 'hit-and-run editorial writer' by The Washington Post.

More than two million people have watched the videos and they have been shared more than 5,000 times.'
