JUST over a year ago US President Donald Trump unleashed a description which dominated newspaper headlines about countries he ranked useless – shithole countries he called them. They included Haiti, El Salvadore and several African states. It was on January 11 2018 during a discussion with senators about immigration policies to protect immigrants from these countries.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump is said to have asked. He went further and suggested that the US should rather take in immigrants from great European countries like Norway and Asian countries. Trump had therefore placed a hierarchical importance of some countries over others, based on race – Europe, Asia and the rest as shitholes.
In Davos, a billionaire by the name of Patrice Motsepe from the shithole continent took it upon himself to lie to Trump about Africa’s love for him.
“All I wanted to say is that Africa loves America. Africa loves you….
Motsepe not only bank-rolled The Global Citizen Festival Concert but he also pledged around R3.5bn towards land reform. The question is: how much was raised at that concert, how much was put towards land reform. https://wp.me/p7OMJc-21Q
