Raila wants US President Trump to apologize over shitholes remark
National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga now wants US President Donald Trump to withdraw and apologise over abusive remarks on Africa and other Third World nations.
In a press statement Saturday afternoon, Raila said remarks attributed to US President Donald Trump disparaging African and other Third World nations are troubling and greatly unfortunate
Raila says the remarks are part of a growing habit by a president who has never missed an opportunity to bully and disparage particularly poor nations.
“The remarks are deeply hypocritical as they conveniently ignore the fact that US corporations have set up tents in the same African countries that President Trump is disparaging and are making billions of dollars that they repatriate back to the US,” Raila said in a statement adding that “In fact, recent media reports indicated that President Trump views Africa as a market for US goods and services and is keen to slow down on issues of democracy and human rights in pursuit of trade in Africa.
