Africans must not ignore Trump’s insults

29th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the AU.

“Sh*thole countries” is Donald Trump’s characterization of African nations. Sh*thole nations? Who does not know that Africa is the engine that continues to propel Western capitalism? Who does not know that the US was built by Africans? Who does not know that the US was, and still responsible for countless civil wars that have displaced Africans from the African soil? Of course, Trump does not know all this, but himself. It is only in America where such a brute can be shamelessly associated with the office of the President.

Africans must not ignore Trump’s insults – they must send a unified message that they oppose his demeaning manners. African presidents and the AU must publicly rebuke him and all his ambassadors. They must also send a strong message that we fought racism with blood and Africa will not sit on the same table with those who view us as third-class citizens.

Religious leaders must also send their message to US Christians who defend and associate with Trump—-there is nothing Christian about him or his insults. If you have followed Trump’s demonic insults, you will surely know that of all people who have held public office in world history, Trump is the most soulless and irrational. Yet to white US Evangelicals, Trump is an angel sent from above—he is a son of the racist god born and raised in racist America. Ask Franklin Graham, the son of Billy Graham; all US Evangelical Christians must support Trump—after all, he is the lifeline US Christianity.

But if you can only count all the things Donald Trump has done, one by one, it will surely surprise you why US evangelicals associate with him. He assaulted women, and boasted about it on camera, but white US Evangelicals shouted, Amen. He insulted disabled persons, and demeaned women, white US Evangelicals shouted, Alleluia! He insulted Mexicans as rapists, and even supported White supremacists, but white US Evangelicals shouted, Kumbaya! He called all Nigerians HIV positive, and white Evangelicals shamelessly shouted, praise the Lord! He praised and supported a child molester, many white US evangelicals shouted, hail the savior–after all he starts his cabinet meetings with prayers–we are told! I can go on and on—but we need to ask, “When will US evangelicals say enough is enough?”

The truth is, Trump is not only dangerously foolish, he is also morally bankrupt. He has lied through his entire life, and continues to do so with the support of white Evangelicals. Trump is not an Evangelical or a Christian, but a racist bigot, who has been propelled into insulting us by those we call Christian brothers and sister—specifically, white evangelicals.

I know that most of us believe that US evangelicals have our interests at heart. No, they don’t. They may bring their bibles and shed crocodile tears about racism, but they don’t want you as their next-door neighbor. Our so called Christian brothers and sisters are highly racist—it is not surprising that they supported the racist government of South Africa. To them, skin color is thicker than the blood of Jesus—no wonder Trump preferred Norwegians over sh*tholes from the cursed continent.

We, African Christians can change this—we must stand up against all Trump evangelicals – from Pat Robertson of the 700 Club to Franklin Graham to Pastor Rick Warren. We must openly shame them for who they are – racists and white supremacists. They do not consider us full humans, we are sh*thole Christians, period!

It is Jesus who said that you will know them by their fruits—I guess we now know. After all, only birds of the same kind can fly together. All those who support Trump are racists—they may hide behind the bible, and Christianity, but the truth is, they are outrageously racist. Next time you see one, just add racist to their names!

  1. They removed Mugabe through a Coup in Zimbabwe, the last courageous African Leader who spoke for us. The rest suffer from inferiority complex.

    Most Political Leader’s cannot stand up and protest because they have stolen and are corrupt. They will stay mute for fear of being exposed.

    Only the clergymen can speak for Africa.

    • Mr Kaoma you are completely off centre! You and other chaps including Africa’s MISLEADERS (Not Leaders but misleaders) are wrong and Mr Trump is 100 percent correct!You chaps don’t understand the reality of the situation on the ground and how people are suffering! Most of the 1mbeciles who support the likes of Mugabe are not from poverty stricken backgrounds but from this new and often self brainwashed middle class who just because they are well off believe everyone is in that situation! Do you know the hell people have gone through in DRC, CAR, Somalia, South Sudan, Angola, Mozambique, Liberia, Sierrieleone, Nigeria and so on? If you don’t just shut up! Trump is correct and you are wrong! You should focus on how to improve this condition rather than denying it!

    • Truth is painful. Africa, endowed with wealth but stup!d about what to do with it. Instead begging is a major industry by the shameless leaders. Do you have to wonder why the west holds Africa in such contempt? Govts in Africa make no attempt to govern so that natural and human resources are marshalled towards developing the continent. You don’t need to re-invent the wheel or go back to lots of drawing boards. With all our resources we can make a start in manufacturing products for export and create employment in the process. I mean the economies of these rich countries are based on producing things and selling them overseas. Simple. Our politicians, once they get power, their main focus becomes to hold to that power indefinitely. Look at lungu, when he is not making profitable personal…

    • Iwe Kapya Kaoma, getting the AU and other Africans to respond to Trump won’t remove the tag “SH**HOLE”. What Trump mouthed is what some of us have always believed to be true and escaped from. Others pretend but Trump is one of a kind and has told you off! And I am sure his compatriots are happy that he has done what they failed to do, call Africa a SH**HOLE that it has been turned into by it’s stup!d leaders.

No wonder Zambia is being targeted as a puppet control room for the west capitalists using diseases like cholera to justify their invasion. My People suffer for lack of knowledge……. You think Bill Gates will just donate the cholera vaccines for nothing? Please wake up Zambians you are too academical.

    • Doctors want President Trump’s head examined
      By Jen Christensen, CNN
      Updated 2034 GMT (0434 HKT) January 13, 2018
      (CNN)President Donald Trump is “in excellent health,” White House physician, Dr. Ronny Jackson, said following his physical Friday. But it’s not clear whether any mental health tests were conducted, despite urging from mental health professionals.

      0

      0
    • Jackson received an urgent letter from dozens of doctors and health professionals Thursday urging him to perform basic mental health tests on the President.
      Problems these experts say they have observed include rambling speech; episodes of slurred speech; failure to recognize old friends; frequent repetition of the same concepts; decreased fine motor coordination; difficulties reading, listening and comprehending; suspect judgment, planning, problem solving and impulse control; and markedly declining vocabulary in recent years, with overreliance on superlatives, according to the letter.

    • Robert Gabriel Magabe is not dead yet. However, the mere removal of Mugabe from power killed the pride of being an African. His replacement is a remnant of a freedom fighter and he is a compromised Western mick mouse. Mugabe stood for African pride and identity. Uncle Bob cherished our values and all African cultures, and he taught us that our norms, traditions and cultures are as good as the Western cultures. In fact, African cultures are better than Western cultures because such cultures are duplicates of our own original cultures. We miss you Robert Gabriel Mugabe and share your knowledge with the younger generations who are confused with rotten Western criminal impositions. Thanks

      I urge all zambians to demand a refund from multichoice for airing S**thole CNN that spends 24/7 talking about frump this, trump that. Those shameles S**THOLE reporters at S**THOLE CNN dont know we spend our hard earned to pay multichoice to get informed about happenings in the world not s**thole analysis of trump all the time

  2. I beg to differ… Trump is right. Look at our leaders and see the greediness in almost every country ruled by a black man.

    Let’s not hate the man, we playing the game in Africa. Trump is only pointing at the trees we swinging on!

    A sh1thole is a country that can afford to rip its poor citizens and ignore them to live in squalor by;

    It’s leaders who embezzle billions of dollars to deposit in white countries… tell me if that’s not a sh1thole already…

    Buying Overpriced fire tracks for 42 million dollars and leaving its poor citizens unknowingly drinking faeces.

    Buying mobile hospitals that are seldom used instead of proper hospitals.

    Buying overpriced ambulances

    Ministers going into positions for themselves and not the people they claim to save.

    Lecturers going…

      That is the problem when in our midst we have people like you suffering from inferiority complex. Imagine. You agreeing that even your parents are shitholes, because only a shithole can birthe a shithole. I can only imagine the stench in your family. Get away from us, the proud African people, you shithole.

    • Trump might not have mentioned Zambia by name. But, it is surely a shithole. Why should our fellow citizens be dying of cholera fifty three years after independence with so much resources at our disposal both in terms of natural and Human Resources?

      It’s all because of greed, which appears to be inherent in Africa leaders across the continent.

  7. Forget wasting time and energy on so much negativity, after all sticks and stones will break ones bones but names will never hurt one.
    Concentrate on positivity ,
    After all Trump is but a small child in mind.
    Corruption is rampant everywhere in the world including my own country of New Zealand , they just cover it up in New Zealand with New Zealand being su h a small country.
    So I suggest stop wasting so much energy on the negative and consecrate on the positive , this is what will help your people and lift your wonderful country up.

  12. Trump just said openly what other leaders say in secret. Unfortunately for Trump, he does not have a language to hide behind. No does he have the presence of mind to select the audience. Do you think the Chinese President doesn’t utter the same things? Angela Merkel, Macron?? They all say these same things because only s***hole countries have their people sailing in floaters on perilous seas seeking a better life in foreign nations.

They went into Iraq where there were streets of gold and looted the gold with the lie that they are helping them to remove the devil saddam. Iraq is now a sh1tole nation because of them and we have 1diots here still clapping for trump. Criticism is good and if done in a civil manner. People need to differentiate criticism from insults. Our opposition also resorts to insults than offering critical issues.

Resources from “rich” countries like Cameroun, Congo Brazzaville, Cote d’Ivoire, Gabon,and all Francophone countries are carted away to buoy the French economy at detriment of developing these countries and Africa! Today there are STILL COUNTRIES paying COLONISATION TAX to France, and pay rent to France for Presidential places where their heads of state live. ANY LEADER WITH INTENTION TO DO OTHERWISE IS REMOVED BY FRANCE!!

  14. With due respect to this Author, I don’t agree. Your issue on the Bible & Evangelicals shows that you may be from that other Religion which has always had issues with Americans. African Leaders should meet to discuss how to end being classified as s…. or A….. I.e an end to rampant & indiscriminate looting with impunity. At least in some Asian Countries they Jail or Hang even ex-Leaders for Corruption. In Africa we rush to hide pilfered money in those same Countries that ridicule us. Even here, an abusive neighbour will call you “we mbwa we or wendoshi we” even without proof. Do we resort to killing each other?. The sad thing is that you don’t have access to your stolen money. Not even your Children. Trump himself aluded to this. Won’t we give him credit for this? Even on this…

    • Even on this forum. Don’t some resort more to insults than Counter Facts? The issues of Libya or Iraq happened at a different time & space & under different circumstances. Let us not initiate a Jihad here. The issue is to find solutions to our Toilets so that we don’t contaminate our underground water & then drink it. Issues like Cholera are grossly Embarassing. Our Leaders should meet to discuss how to never fight wars again against your Brother. They should meet to discuss how to Plant less Landmines & use our vast beautifully Lands for Agriculture. Whilst I don’t agree with Trumps vulgar Language, it is not him who put Africans in the S….. situation.

    • The issue of gramping is a non issue & personal. Has Bill Cosby, a Black not been under fire as well for first lacing drinks with valium & then abusing Women when they became unconscious. Why not decide to return all the Financial assistance they have given you then. Won’t you run Bankrupt. Return also the Debts they have cancelled. I agree with the School of thought that this issue is better left to Diplomatic Experts in International Relations. An Official Statement would help, so that we know which line to tow.

    U are the reason why Trump is insulting us. U should all come back to Africa and if Trump insult us then we are going to rise against him.

    As long as you are all there , I believe Trump is right to insult us because u are encroaching in his country. Guys you are just too many there.

    U should give us a reason why Trump should not insult us when you guys are there. Trump is insulting black people who are in America and not us who are in Africa. Come back to Africa and leave Trump alone. He is a good president for Americans and he represent the way Americans think of u guys who have gone there.

    We are only going to fight Trump if you black Africa people come back home. We are waiting for you guys home.

Zambians have more to learn from the Asians migrants than you guys.

Lets just work hard and keeping holding our leaders accountable! Should we be blaming cholera and corruption on racism? then where do you place tribalism? Don’t include all Africans in your religious segregation: where do you then place Moslem as this is major component of west/east/central/north africa? And who told you that we are followers of 700 club or is it 007 James Bond? Don’t put your gut-feeling into public consumption. Characterise Haiti, her problems and poverty due to corruption=Zambia=DRC=Boko haram Nigeria=Central African R=Malawi=Depleted Zimbabwe=TOgo=induced tribal wars in Libya=Sh*thole countries

    • Ng’umbo kwata amano. You must talk sense. Which 1.d.i.ot lied to you that civil servants salaries are donor funded? Where do you think ZRA collections go?? That money is collected internally through various taxes meaning the country generates income. Some sectors do get donor aid like health, but the country borrows and pays back to fund some gaps in the budget like every other country. We are not in donor ICU, our GDP is bigger than a lot of countries.

You people saying trump is right are missing the point, he is not insulting the countrilies or their leaders he is referring to to you as people you are the sh….holes. in fact he said why do we want the people from s…hole countries coming here (people) why don’t we get people from Norway or Asia who will add value to the USE.

    So those simple guys thinking he is talking about the governments or political or economic systems in your country are dead wrong. HE IS REFERRING TO YOU AS A PEOPLE YOU ARE THE SH??T HOLES HE DOES NOT HOLES HE DOES NOT WANT IN HIS COUNTRY

    • And thanks to who we are the people living in the “5h!tholes”? How can you justify millions risking their lives to escape living conditions in the “5hitholes” The bunch of parasitic thieving and corrupt abusers of human rights have found “unity” of purpose against Trump, but for past 30 years have failed to ratify establishment of AU Court of Justice and instead enjoy living on the back of oppressed, uneducated and hunger stricken masses.

      I doubt you guided by any ideology or philosophy. Your thinking sounds petty to state the least! Nevertheless, get focused on systemic structures of governance, depletion of which has been catastrophic= Sh*th.ole countries!

  24. Zimbabwe is a “Shithole” country becoz unmployment is 95%, no currency of its own, there is no money in the Banks, they use fake money called Bond Notes, the prices are skyrocketing, its ruled by a Military Junta etc. Just like most African Countries, Zimbabwe is a Banana Republic and a Shithole country. Zambia with Cholera,corruption, misgovernance and misrule etc is also “Shithole” Koswe Mumpoto country. Donald Trump is Right and is calling a Spade a Spade though racist.

    That said, we now understand what Trump was talking about.

  27. Trump himself is a son of an immigrant who escaped the Sh!*hole in Ireland for a better life in America. Don’t mind him, we all seek better pastures elsewhere but it seems the biggest xenophobes are the immigrants themselves.

  29. I will never understand African mentality. Slave master spits in your face and you take it with a smile.

    If it had been Obama or an African president saying the same about African countries, they would have railed against him. But because it’s a white American president, they give him thumbs up. Our biggest enemy is not people like Trump that openly insult us – we are our own enemies through self-hate instead of national pride, oneness and resistance against imperialism.

  30. What Mr Trump said was just to insult a black person and and that’s the bottom line of the issue…Therefore all those supporting that kind of warped and deranged reasoning must know that he’s insulted all black people whether rich or poor,Opposition or Ruling etc and that’s the idea…What is important to note is that the rest of the world cannot operate without Black Africa whichever way you look at…

  31. Trump was/ is right. The leaders themselves know it better. Let the African leader worth his b.alls throw the first stone. None will. They fear to have their b.alls squeezed like hell. America is a power house and they know it and it can do whatever it wants to do or say. Do we even have a choice as Africans ? No!
    Ask Gadaffi, ask Mugabe, ask Saddam (am sure he is also African!
    Today its Trump reminding us that we live sh.ithole countries – yesterday Cameron by then UK PM said our leaders are fantastically corrupt and they come from fantastically corrupt countries. So what has changed. Can a leopard change its spots. NO. Lets just accept that we are sh.ithole citizens and we move on! Kwasila.
    Disaster!

  32. Hypocritical africans, its easy to criticize Trump but you same Zambians and other africans hate it when your countries are flooded with immigrants from so called poorest of the poor. We had xenophobia in Zed and south Africa. We want investors which implies those from rich nations why can’t trump also demand to admit the bes.

  34. No matter where you come from, if you are a black man, you are an African. People running away from their countries and want to behave as Americans or Britons. Time is coming when you will be fighting to come back to Africa because Africa is rising. Africa is not a Shithole. TRUMP IS A SHITHOLE. Very soon you will see what a Shithole he is when he starts chasing you to come back to beautiful Africa.

    Even a Shithole is cleaned and Africa is in that process. Inferior Africans in foreign countries, insult and mock all you can this continent is rising. Time is coming when Africans will be proud to be called Africans. And indeed many of us are very proud of that.

    Once called a dark continent but now light shines from Africa. Africa land of beauty and freshness. Rising sleeping giant…

  36. I am with Trump…He calls a Spade a Spade.

    Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia having Cholera in this modern age when we hear they were actually given/loaned money for water reticulation and sanitation not too long ago.
    What do you call this – this is the “Shithole” Trump is talking about – Your shit and drink the same and expect to be heathy.

    Corruption and Greedy in Zambia is very rampant as endorsed by ECL himself – ECL and PF are the most corrupt ruthless scumbags degenerating Zambia into a shithole.
    In the end however, its the voters to blame = LSK, CB, Luapula, Northen, Muchinga, etc voted enmasses for these corrupt thugs = so live with it in your Shithole = You Reap what Your Sow.

  37. Of course Trump has to blow trumpets of hatred to save his own skin because he knows very well that if he fails to do so he will be out faster than Obama.His campaign pledge was to make America great again.He is an immigrant too so he is just being strategic he knows what the people want to hear and see he is using it eff

  39. Hold your fire guys!!!!!!if some of you are agreeable with Trump’s perception of African countries I challenge you to reflect on the world economic order…Think of this , why is it that African commodities such as copper are regulated by the London Metal Exchange??, and remember this that France is the sole benefactor from most West African oil producing countries and look at the state of the Niger Delter in Nigeria..In Zambia, we cannot even export cash crops such as our most nutritious Chalimbana Red groundnuts to the western world, the chocolates that these western world countries are enjoying its raw material comes from Ghana, Ivory Coast, etc but do they have 100% say in the trade??? I mean the list goes on, so the western world especially the USA, determine the prices of our own…

    • And whom do you blame for this state of affairs? Did you vote for the “leaders” or for the corrupt thieving hypocrites to sell the Country to anybody who will better theirs bank balance?
      What about our new “friends”? Are the “comrades” from China any better? Can you justify rags to riches of the leaders of 5hith0le countries?
      Do yourself a big favor. Clean your Sh!thole house before embarking on the journey of apportioning blame

  40. Guys read Trumps insults in context and don’t be emotional about it. Are your memories too short to even go in circles? Fact is Trump is a racist and does not want anything to do with a black man! See how he busy undoing everything Obama did and achieved, not because they were all wrong but the he was a black US President and this hates him to the core.
    Being specific, Trump said “he doesn’t want those people from sh1thole countries”, he means that as long your skin is darker than is his, you are just a beggar in the US. He is actually telling you that if had a way he deport all non whites from US.
    So don’t try and bring this to country level, and insult your leaders, he just can’t stand you blacks in the US. Remember this whole thing came about as a result of immigrants…

    • And because Trump is racist, we should accept to wallow in the destitution and poverty whilst our “leaders” (lol) are striping our Nations of its wealth and use our tax contribution to better their insatiable thirst to get rich?

  42. Thanks for all the pro and con comments on this article. Hats off.The question is hw do nations with abounded God endowed rich resources like Africa live in abject poverty to date?Look at European countries lyk England,Belgium (where I did my college studies) etc..These countries do not have copper,gold, diamonds etc….,but how comes they can even lend money to African countries? The ansa is quit simple.The white man gospel has blinded the mind of Africans in that Africans have been worshipping the white Jesus whose real name is Yashuah or Yeshuah who was a black Jew.The white Jesus displayed in churches is nothing than the devil in disguise bcz the devil color is white. Check “the thief only come to steal, to kill and to destroy”, so will his offsprings. Find out which races fit this…

  43. The reason people from Norway (there are non whites living in Norway called Inuits too) and other White countries don’t come in masses to the US of A is because the US is not the land of milk and honey and is also a sh?t hole, its the 3rd world of western nations and most poorly educated on just about anything international.

  48. People have a misguided idea of Christianity. We are not all passive whimps. I love Jesus but I’m human and Jesus (the son of God) did not concern himself with politic correctness. John the Baptist definitely did not. Although trump should use more tack, he’s not saying anything I’ve not thought. We are taking in people that could and should stand up to their leaders. Instead they are coming into America and not bringing job security, education, and using our tax dollars to survive. Sorry but if you look liberal music videos like “rage against the machine” and rap … you’ll see how they glamorize;poverty, gangs, vandalism unemployment, rioting, and poverty. Instead of liberal Americans saying, “ NO! We want better than that”, they instead go out and pray on ignorant emotions and tell…
