South Africa summons US diplomat to explain Trump ‘shithole’ comment

South Africa summoned the United States’ senior diplomat in Pretoria on Monday over President Donald Trump’s recent disparaging comments about African nations and Haiti.

Trump has been accused of describing African nations as “shithole countries” during a meeting with U.S. senators last week. He has denied making the statements, as well as the ensuing accusations that he is racist.
South African foreign ministry officials met the U.S. chargé d’affaires and other U.S. Embassy officials in the capital to express South African concerns about Trump’s reported comments, the ministry said in a statement.
“It was noted that Africa and the African diaspora has contributed significantly to the United States and to its development into the country that it is today, and that the African and international reaction to the alleged statements clearly serve as a united affirmation of the dignity of the people of Africa and the African diaspora,” the ministry said.
The meeting provided an opportunity for the U.S. Embassy to reiterate its “commitment to working with South Africa to achieve shared goals and strengthen our bilateral ties,” embassy spokeswoman Cindy Harvey said in a statement. “We remain committed to working together to realize the promise of a more peaceful, more productive, more prosperous South Africa.”
Trump’s comments were met with widespread consternation in Africa, with an African Union spokeswoman saying the union was “frankly alarmed.”
“Given the historical reality of how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, this statement flies in the face of all accepted behavior and practice,” AU spokeswoman Ebba Kalondo said. The governments of Namibia and Botswana have also condemned the comments.

    He was having an emotional affair 3rd time second woman, so he kick me out. We went to relationship counseling twice. he said he needed to go to personal before he would meet us again. In counseling he admitted he loved me but not in love with me.I am beyond devastated. What should I do? And when do you think he will realize he's still IN love with me? I need this man to realize I'm still that girl he met 6 years ago. I've noticed lately in the last couple days he's kinda been trying to make me jealous, in a sense of telling me he's getting checked out at work, or flexing his muscles in front of me– I'm not sure if I should take this as a good sign or not?

  2. After being in relationship with him for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him.. back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that.. could help me cast a spell to… bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so …sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much…. I was so happy and went to him, that .,,was how we started living together happily again.
