The United States Embassy in Ghana seems to be distancing itself from the alleged comments made by US President Donald Trump denigrating African countries, along with other nations with persons of African descent. A tweet from the Embassy conveyed what it called its “great respect for the people of Africa”
“Our commitment to Ghana and all our African partners remains strong. It’s an honour for our staff to serve here alongside Ghanaians, and we deeply value our relationship with them,” the tweet added. The Washington Post first reported that President Trump had described some African nations as ‘shithole countries.’
The alleged remarks made a meeting at the White House to consider migrant policies, were said to have also been made in reference to Haiti and El Salvador. President Trump has since dismissed the claims, however, White House communicators have however failed to categorically deny that he made those comments.
