A group of “extremely appalled” African countries demanded today that US President Donald Trump retract and apologise for his reported denunciation of immigration from “shithole” nations. After an emergency session to weigh Trump’s remarks, the group of African ambassadors to the United Nations said it was “concerned at the continuing and growing trend from the US administration toward Africa and people of African descent to denigrate the continent and people of colour.” The group is “extremely appalled at, and strongly condemns the outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks by the president of the United States of America as widely reported by the media,” a statement added, demanding a “retraction and an apology.” But they also thanked those Americans “from all walks of life who have condemned the remarks.”

The resolution was passed unanimously after four hours of discussions. “For once, we are all on the same page,” an ambassador told AFP. Trump’s comments were allegedly made yesterday at a White House meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform. After lawmakers raised the issue of protections for immigrants from African nations, Haiti and El Salvador, the president reportedly demanded to know why the United States should accept immigrants from “shithole countries,” rather than — for instance — wealthy and overwhelmingly white Norway. He tweeted a convoluted denial today in an attempt to quell outrage both at home and abroad.
