DIPLOMATIC FAIL

African Leaders Drafted Letter Demanding Apology From Trump

African leaders drafted a declaration condemning President Trump’s “shithole” remark and demanding that he publicly apologize for the comment “that defies all forms of diplomatic etiquette,” according to the Associated Press. Created at the African Union Summit last week, the draft declaration claimed that African leaders were “deeply appalled" by the president’s remark and stated that the strategic partnership between the U.S. and Africa were at-risk because of his "racist and xenophobic behavior." The delegations seemingly changed their mind due to a letter Trump sent to the African Union Summit claiming he “deeply respects” the people of Africa.
