JUST IN: FG Summons US Ambassador Over Trump’s ‘Shithole’ Remarks
The last has not been heard of the statement credited to US President Donald Trump, stating that immigrants were coming from 'shithole' countries.
As nations across the globe continue to react, Nigeria government has decided to take it a notch higher by summoning the United States ambassador to Nigeria, Stuart Symington, over the derogatory remarks.
Trump had last week lambasted immigrants, stating that they were coming from ‘shithole’ countries, a statement that annoyed many concerned nations and generated serious criticisms from the African Union and others.
Symington is expected to meet with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama later on Monday.
Trump has previously tried to pass a ban on travel to the US from various Muslim-majority countries, which a judge said was a continuation of his “promise to exclude Muslims from the United States”.FOR MORE FRESH STORIES, DOWNLOAD BOUNCE NEWS APP HERE
