Nigeria, South Africa Summon US Ambassador Over Trump Insults

Alwaght- Nigeria has joined South Africa in summoning the United States’ ambassador over the derogatory remarks recently made by President Donald Trump about African countries.

Nigeria’s Foreign Minister Geoffrey Onyeama confirmed on Monday that US Ambassador Stuart Symington had been summoned to the Foreign Ministry. Onyeama declined to provide further details.

Trump on Thursday questioned why the US should be taking in immigrants from Haiti and African nations, which he called “sh--hole countries,” according to US government officials present at the meeting where Trump spoke.

The Nigerian Foreign Ministry said in statement that Onyeama “sought clarification on the veracity or otherwise of the substance of the remarks, stressing that if they were true, they were deeply hurtful, offensive and unacceptable.”

 South Africa has also summoned the US ambassador in Pretoria about the insults by President Trump which have drawn international ire.

South Africa issued a diplomatic protest to the United States Monday over President Donald Trump's "shithole countries" comments, according to its foreign ministry.

South African diplomats also met with the US Embassy's Charge d'Affaires Monday to express their concerns.

In a statement, the South African Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) didn't specifically mention the vulgarity but said it was concerned about "statements that were allegedly made by President Donald Trump" concerning African nations.

The African Union mission to the US also demanded that Trump’s statement be retracted and an apology be issued. So far, neither Trump nor any other US officials have apologized.
