The African Union, an organization comprised of all 55 African nations, blasted President Donald Trump's comments that the continent contained "shithole countries." "The African Union Mission wishes to express its infatuation, disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr. Donald Trump, the President of the United States of America, which remarks dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity," the union said in a statement. The response came after Trump told a bipartisan meeting of senators that the immigration system should be changed to allow fewer people from "shithole countries" during a discussion about Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations. The union also demanded that Trump formally retract the statement and deliver "an apology not only to the Africans but to all people of African descent around the globe." he statement from the African Union also followed a slew of international condemnations.
