United Nations has branded Trump a “racist” after he used the word “sh**hole” to describe African countries. He was criticized for the disrespectful comments he made while attempting to convince members of the Congress not to accept immigrants from Haiti and African countries.
Trump denied using the word “sh**hole” over a series of tweets and rather said that all he used was “tough language.” However, this couldn’t convince UN human rights spokesman Rupert Colville who strongly disagreed with the American president’s remarks and called him a “racist.”
While giving his statement, the UN spokesperson pointed out the fact that Trump preferred immigrants from countries like Norway instead of Africa which makes his racial intentions clear.
Colville said, “If confirmed, these are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States. Sorry, but there is no other word one can use but racist. You cannot dismiss entire countries and continents as s***holes whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome. The positive comment on Norway makes the underlying sentiment very clear.”
He added, “Like the earlier comments made vilifying Mexicans and Muslims, the policy proposals targetting entire groups on grounds of nationality or religion, and the reluctance to clearly condemn the anti-semitic and racist actions of the white supremacists in Charlottesville – all of these go against the universal values the world has been striving so hard to establish since World War II and the Holocaust.”
12.3% of the American population is black and it is certain that they are insulted by Trump’s behavior and comments. With such racial behavior, Trump is ruining his chances for the next elections because at this rate, what minority group will vote for him?
