US President Donald Trump has asked the African Union chairman to pass his “warmest regards” to other regional leaders after his comment against Africans.
Trump congratulated Rwandan President, Paul Kagame on taking over as the Chairman of the African bloc which according to Trump is a “great honour.”
“I know you’re going to your first meeting shortly. Please give my warmest regards,” Trump told Kagame after they held a one-on-one meeting at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
The US president ignored questions shouted by journalists about his reported dismissal this month of African nations as “shithole countries”, during a meeting on immigration with congressional leaders.
The 55-nation African Union chaired by Kagame demanded an apology, although Trump has denied making the remark as relayed by US lawmakers who were present at the meeting.
