Republican presidential candidate in the United States presidential election of 2016 Donald Trump is at it again, as he has lashed out at African heads of state.
Mr Trump was addressing reporters in Nebraska last week, where he condemn African leaders for having insatiable desire for power and wealth, while their people are living like slaves.
Responding to a question a from South African journalist on African countries considering mass withdrawal from the International Criminal Court (ICC) Trump said:
It is shameful for African leaders to seek exit from ICC. In my view, these leaders want to have all the freedom to oppress their poor people without anyone asking them a question.
I THINK THERE IS NO SHORTCUT TO MATURITY AND IN MY VIEW, AFRICA SHOULD BE RECOLONIZED BECAUSE AFRICANS ARE STILL UNDER SLAVERY.
LOOK AT HOW THOSE AFRICAN LEADERS CHANGE CONSTITUTIONS IN THEIR FAVOUR SO THAT THEY CAN BE LIFE PRESIDENTS. THEY ARE ALL GREEDY AND DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE COMMON PEOPLE.
WHEN I SAW THEM GANG UP AGAINST ICC YET THEY CAN’T EVEN FIND AN AMICABLE SOLUTION FOR THE ONGOING QUANDARY IN BURUNDI, I THOUGHT TO MYSELF THESE PEOPLE LACK DISCIPLINE AND HUMANE HEART.
THEY CAN’T LEAD BY EXAMPLE. THE ONLY THING THEY ARE INTERESTED IN IS ACCUMULATING WEALTH FROM POOR TAX PAYERS.”
