You must apologise to Africans, AU tells Donald Trump

The 55-nation African Union condemned the remarks last Friday, while a statement from ambassadors of all countries from the continent at the United Nations demanded a retraction and apology.

Ambassadors unanimously agreed the resolution after an emergency session to weigh Trump's remarks.

Others pointed out that when Norwegians were emigrating to the U.S. 100 years ago, it was to escape the war and poverty that many modern immigrants and refugees face.

While those missions won't stop, "if people fundamentally don't trust you and like you, it's going to change the tone of the relationship", Lewis said.

"So the president invited me to call him when we had our little get-together in the Cabinet Room". I could write about the beauty of the island, the music and vibrant art, the majesty of the mountains, the crystalline blue of the water surrounding her, the resilience of the Haitian people, our incredible work ethic, our faith.

As outrage spread, the USA government's own Africa Media Hub tried to put out the flames.

Trump has been seeking to end temporary protection status of people from certain countries.

MS EBBA KALONDO, spokeswoman for African union chief Moussa Faki. I reject them and condemn them vigorously.

According to The Washington Post, during an Oval Office meeting on Thursday with US senators to discuss the status of some immigrants in the country, President Trump described Haiti, El Salvador and unspecified African countries as "shitholes".

All African countries at the United Nations unanimously demanded Friday that US President Donald Trump retract and apologize for his reported denunciation of immigration from "shithole" nations.

He tweeted a convoluted denial on Friday in an attempt to quell outrage both at home and overseas.

The State Department appeared to have gone into damage-repair mode.

"They say it's about numbers, merit, security and control", Frank Sharry of the immigrant rights group America's Voice said of organizations that share Trump's desire to reduce both illegal and legal immigration to the U.S.

He tweeted: "God made me African".

Botswana's foreign ministry summoned the US ambassador in protest and called the comments "highly irresponsible, reprehensible and racist". Whether folks are coming from Australia or England or Haiti or Senegal, when they come to the United States, they adopt American values and they make our country stronger.

The statement added that Gaborone had sought clarification from the U.S. ambassador on whether "Botswana is regarded as a "s***hole" country, given that there are Botswana nationals residing in the US".

Many Africans reminded the U.S. of its historic role in the continent's woes.

South African comedian Trevor Noah, star of "The Daily Show", described himself as an offended citizen of "South Shithole" and also called Trump out for racism, especially for saying he preferred immigrants from Norway.

Whoa. I've never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the United States.

South Africa's ruling African National Congress called Trump's comments "extremely offensive", while opposition leader Mmusi Maimane said "the hatred of Obama's roots now extends to an entire continent".

We know that lawyers are looking for evidence of racist bias in White House immigration policies and other initiatives.

Republican U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin also criticized the president's words, but in more mild terms. "They just pretend to like us, but they don't". She also said this week that if he were alive today he would be a ' pro-life activist. "Don't feed the troll".
