Donald Trump

According to new reports, American president, Donald Trump has been branded a shameful racist after it was credibly reported he had described African nations, as well as Haiti and El Salvador as “shitholes” during a meeting with lawmakers on Thursday, and questioned why so many of their citizens had ever been permitted to enter America.

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from those countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal.

Trump demanded to know why the US would accept immigrants from these countries rather than places like Norway, whose prime minister he had met the day before.

In a strongly-worded statement, the UN said it was impossible to describe his remarks as anything other than racist, while the Vatican decried Trump’s words as “particularly harsh and offensive”.

The African Union said it was alarmed by Trump’s language. “Given the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, this statement flies in the face of all accepted behaviour and practice,” its spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo told Associated Press.

Well, here are some reactions by some Nigerians on Twitter;

We could go on and on. Many Nigerians on Twitter say Mr Trump is right, do you agree???
