8 Tweets That Proof Africa is not the “Shithole” Trump Think It Is

U.S. President Donald Trump’s dismissal of Haiti, El Salvador and all of Africa as “shithole countries” whose people are not desirable for U.S. immigration shocked people around the world and provoked swift condemnation.

Trump made the remarks Thursday during a White House meeting with U.S. lawmakers. And reactions from around the world were swift.

“The African Union Commission is frankly alarmed at statements by the president of the United States when referring to migrants of African countries and others in such contemptuous terms,” said Ebba Kalondo, the spokeswoman for commission chair Moussa Faki. “Considering the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the U.S. during the Atlantic slave trade, this flies in the face of all accepted behavior and practice.”

She added that the statement was particularly unpleasant coming from the leader of a country that is a “global example” of how a strong and diverse country can be the product of migration.

To add to Kalondo’s statement, here are 10 tweets that prove Trump’s statement is nothing other than vulgar racist abuse:

  1. Nigerian Immigrants in the U.S. are more financially stable than Americans

2. These African capitals are as ‘un-shithole’ as they come

3. Africa actually contributed (in a big way) to Trump’s America being what it is today

4. Because Africa is blessed

5. This is a view of Africa

6. There’s no country called “Shithole Republic” in Africa

7. Quick maths, Trump is racist.

8. Most people would rather live in Africa than anywhere else in the world
