Trump faces backlash over 'shithole' comment about Africans and Haitians

President Donald Trump has come under attacks from Africans and the world at large after allegedly referring to African countries as 'Shithole'.

Trump on Thursday, January 11, allegedly referred to Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries" during a meeting with a group of senators at the White House.

Trump reportedly asked the lawmakers:"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

Reacting to the racist comment allegedly made by the American president, journalists and dignitaries came out to condemn the statement.

Haitian journalist Frantz Duval wrote: “Now that the whole world is aware, are we going to take pleasure in this image? Nothing to change it? Are we going to continue to feed the jumble and the singing nonsense that we use as ornaments?” he tweeted in French.
