Shithole countries demand an apology from Donald Trump for calling their countries shitholes

Despite the fact that their countries are actually shitholes, it is apparently an outrage to tell the truth:

The organisation representing African countries has demanded that US President Donald Trump apologise after he reportedly called nations on the continent “shitholes”.

The group’s mission in Washington DC expressed its “shock, dismay and outrage” and said the Trump administration misunderstood Africans.

The US leader made the alleged remark in a Thursday meeting on immigration.

But Mr Trump has denied using the language reported.

He has been backed by two Republicans who were at the White House meeting, but Democratic Senator Dick Durbin said Mr Trump called African countries “shitholes” several times and used “racist” language.

On Friday, Mr Trump tweeted that his language he used at the private meeting with lawmakers to discuss immigration legislation had been “tough”.

But he added that the words attributed to him were “not the language used”.

So they are demanding an apology for words no one has yet proven were even said. Even if they were, so what, those countries are literally shitholes.

It said the “remarks dishonour the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity”.

It added: “While expressing our shock, dismay and outrage, the African Union strongly believes that there is a huge misunderstanding of the African continent and its people by the current Administration.

“There is a serious need for dialogue between the US Administration and the African countries.”

The pan-African grouping represents 55 member states throughout the continent. It succeeded the Organisation of African Unity – which originated in the decolonisation struggles of the early 1960s – in 2002.

I think the dialogue will go something like this…’So, you’re upset at your countries being described as shitholes, when they demonstrably are shitholes, despite billions in aid money, they are still shitholes…no more aid for you until you clean your shitholes up’.

No one cares, especially American voters who are sick of being the world’s policeman and the world’s banker. They are sick of being disrespected by people who stand with their hands out, then spit on the people giving them assistance.
