Johannesburg, Jan 14 : The African group of ambassadors to the United Nations has issued an extraordinary statement condemning the “outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks” by President Donald Trump and demanding a retraction and apology, the CBS News has reported.

Former US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power has shared the statement on Twitter, saying: “Whoa. I’ve never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the United States.”

The African ambassadors issued the statement late Friday following an emergency meeting after Mr Trump used vulgar language to reject an immigration bill, asking why the US would take in more people from Haiti and “sh*thole countries” in Africa.
