US President Donald Trump has again made disparaging comments about African countries and Haiti.
Trump during an immigration meeting with lawmakers said “why are we having all these people from sh*thole countries come here?”
The comments have not gone down well with some Africans who have taken to social media to criticize the US president.

Africa isn’t a shithole. It’s the most beautiful continent in the world. Beautiful,hardworking people. We have diamonds, gold, iron, cobalt, uranium, copper, bauxite, silver, petroleum, cocoa, coffee, tea etc. Sadly we have #shithole leaders like Trump shitting on us everyday. pic.twitter.com/Vv4Wgtq4Pk

Of course Trump's base will love the "shithole" comment re African countries, Haiti etc. Let's be real; not just America, much of the world sees Africa this way, and with reason. Very unpleasant to hear, but from my POV, Africa's leaders need to hear the truth told to their face. https://t.co/ZLBHoUrg6L

Trump, like a 2 year old, tends to provoke instead of asking for something he wants. So in this case what does he want from African nations? An invitation for an African safari? Invite him, then abandon him on a highway & let us (African savages) pelt him with rotten eggs.

Every African Ambassador in DC should send #Trump a staple national dish with a World Bank report on their economic growth. Just for just
