(Trump insults) US Africa unit in damage control mode

World | 12 Jan 2018 7:56 pm

The U.S. government’s Africa Media Hub is trying to put out the flames sparked by President Donald Trump’s vulgar comments about African immigrants.

Without directly referring to Trump’s statement, the tweet says that "US remains committed to working together w/Africans to realize the promise of a more peaceful, more productive, more prosperous 21st century Africa. US deeply respects the people of #Africa & values its partnerships with them.”

Trump on Thursday questioned why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries” in Africa rather than places like Norway in rejecting a bipartisan immigration deal.-AP
