The African Union on Friday blasted President Donald Trump for his profane comments about African countries and other nations, and recalled the U.S.’ history of bringing in slaves from the continent.
Mr. Trump used the words “shithole countries” to describe Haiti, El Salvador and African countries in response to lawmakers who suggested they restore protections for immigrants from there, the Washington Post reported Thursday.
The White House has not disputed the report.
Responding to the remarks, AU spokeswoman, Ebba Kalondo, reminded Trump that many Africans “arrived in the U.S. as slaves,” adding that Trump’s profane statement “flies in the face of all accepted behaviour and practice.”
