Trump decries immigrants from '****hole countries' coming to US


Posted 8:52 am, 01/15/2018

Infuriation, disappointment and outrage'

The African Union, a group representing the continent's countries, and African ambassadors to the United Nations Friday sharply denounced Trump's reference to African nations as "****holes" and called on him to retract his statement and apologize.

"The African Union Mission wishes to express its infuriation, disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr. Donald Trump, President of the United States of America, which remarks dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity," the African Union mission to the United States said in a blistering statement.

Condemning the comments "in the strongest terms," the AU demanded "a retraction of the comment as well as an apology, not only to the Africans, but to all people of African descent around the globe."

African UN envoys issued a statement saying their group is "extremely appalled at, and strongly condemns the outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks attributed to the President of the United States of America."

The envoys released a joint statement Friday after an emergency meeting was held to address the issue.

The group "is concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the US administration towards Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of color," it said.

South Africa's government will formally protest to the US Embassy in Pretoria on Monday, the Department of International Relations announced in a statement released to media on Sunday.

He's talking about third world countries who have crooked politicians that keep the money for themselves that we send them instead of feeding starving babies or allowing them to get the vaccinations they need. They have ruined their countries by throwing trash down everywhere, including nasty baby diapers and all kinds of trash into their waterways then they give that water to their children that in a lot of cases kills them. They don't even have dumpsters. They've cut down most all the trees and that is the main reason that they have such bad floods and so much erosion every time there are heavy rains. We've sent these countries money over and over only to see it go to their leaders, not to the starving, sick people. It takes some sorry SOB's to take food and water and medicines from the people it was meant to go to. It's not our fault that their leaders are crooks. These poor people sure do deserve a lot better than they're getting. It's not the peoples fault, they know no better. That's why it gripes my *** when some whine about our country, this is heaven compared to how some have to live.

Thanks Larkin , plus some of them are very good human beings who, through no fault of their own , don't have anywhere near the advantages we have.

You brain defect liberals are so upset about what was/was not said, then I have a question for you. If these countries are so darn good, then why are their people trying to get here? Could it be all the freebies we give them? The dumbcrats love to support them so they can have a bigger voting bloc. That is all the effin politicians care about. The only good politicians is a dead one.

Donald is a moron.
