donald-trump-860-01

An organization of African countries have demanded an apology from US President Trump for his alleged derogatory remark calling the nations on the continent 'shitholes'.

The group's mission in Washington DC expressed its "shock, dismay and outrage" and said the Trump administration misunderstood Africans, reports say.

Meanwhile, Trump has denied using the language reported. Yet, Democratic Senator Dick Durbin said Mr Trump called African countries "shitholes" several times and used "racist" language.

The African Union charged that the "remarks dishonour the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity".

The African Union said: "While expressing our shock, dismay and outrage, the African Union strongly believes that there is a huge misunderstanding of the African continent and its people by the current Administration. There is a serious need for dialogue between the US Administration and the African countries."
