African UN ambassadors and the African Union have called for “a retraction and an apology” from Donald Trump after the US president reportedly described them as “shithole” countries.
Trump has denied using the phrase.
All 54 African ambassadors to the United Nations decried Donald Trump’s reported remarks as “outrageous, racist, and xenophobic” on Friday, a day after US media reported that Trump had referred to African states, Haiti, and El Salvador as “shithole countries.”
The UN diplomats met for an emergency session before issuing a joint statement to demand a “retraction and an apology” from the US president.“For once, we are all on the same page,” an ambassador told the Agence France-Presse news agency.
The ambassadors also thanked American citizens “from all walks of life who have condemned the remarks.”
