Mahama slams ‘racist’ Trump, urges action from AU

Former President John Mahama has described United States president Donald Trump as a racist and a white supremacist following some demeaning remarks he reportedly made against African countries. There was public outrage after it was reported by the Washington Post that Trump had called some nations on the continent ‘shithole countries.’

According to Democratic Senator, Dick Durbin, Trump, during a meeting at the White House to consider migrant policies, said, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” The alleged remarks were said to have also been made in reference to Haiti and El Salvador.

Mr. Mahama condemned the reported comments and urged the African Union to take action following these developments. “Africans and Haitians come from ‘shithole’ countries? Isn’t Trump demonstrating that he’s nothing but a racist and pursuing a policy of ‘Make America White Again’? I congratulate Botswana for showing the way. Our AU Presidents must respond strongly to this insult,” Mr. Mahama said in a tweet.
