The Office of UN Commissioner for Human Rights said on Friday that U.S. President Donald Trump’s reported remarks that immigrants were coming from “shithole countries” are racist.

On Thursday, media reported that Trump behind closed doors expressed displeasure over people migrating to the U.S. from “shithole countries.”

“If confirmed, these are shocking and shameful comments from the president of the U.S.

“I am sorry but there is no other word one can use, but racist.

“You can’t dismiss entire countries and continents as shit holes whose entire population is not white and therefore are not welcomed,” the UN human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told newsmen.

Colville said the issue was more than “vulgar language”, Colville said.

“It’s about opening the door to humanity’s worst side, about validating and encouraging racism and xenophobia that will potentially disrupt and destroy lives of many people.” (Sputnik/NAN)

    UN is just talking rubbish. I as an Afrikan like a Truthful Man like Trump than a criminal Organisations like UN. Is it not true that Afrika and Afrikans are shitholes?: It is a cleaer truth But UN prefer praising Muderers Like Buhari of Nigeria instead of telling him the simple Truth. So Un want Trump to lie so that they UN will continue to do their Criminal Businesses with all those Criminals in Afrika that made Afrika a shithole True. Afrika is Shithole and that is the Truth.

    • princegab

      The truth is that Trump is wrong, but not you. The UN understood your feelings and will not let Trump make it worse.

      • obiora

        You talk good(thank you) but it is Like Afrikan is not part of this world or they are not under UN. Why UN will give Fake Answeres to Afrikan Problem and so bringing Criminal in Afrikan Politics.

        • princegab

          Others are treating us the way we want to be treated. Politics is all about taking care of ourselves but unfortunately African leaders are yet to wake up. They can not cultivate the patriotism.

      More like your fathers house is crap.

        Don’t forget his mother…though he might not know who his actually mother is. It’s not unusual in their neck of the wood.

      Afrika is Shithole and that is the Truth

      You are an African, and that makes you a shithóle. Governments did not build any country in Europe, Asia or America, the people did!

      So, one solution to get Africa out of the shithóle is to get rid of shitholes like you who wants governments to do everything for them and replace you with pioneers and creative people.

      • Julius

        Thank you. NOw you see how biafraudians thinks !..self hatred is always their lots.

      • obiora

        Governments did not build Countries of Europe ,America or Asia as you said and that is the Truth but you should write this as a LETTER to the Caliph Tyrant to know. because What is killing Afrika is too much Government. But will Buhari agree with that. He is more interested How to rebuild SOKOTO Caliphate than a Modern Country and how to take people´s land for his Tribe. Is it not a shame that in Twenty first century a president is talking to colonize his Country with Cattle. So being a Black Man did not mean that I will lie against the Truth. That is typical Fulani. Some Hundred Years ago a Fulani Man Mansa-Musa believed that exploiting Black Empire (Gahna) wealth will make Fulani his the foremost Tribe in the World. Even he crashed Gold price in the year he went to Saudi-Arabia from Gold he stole from Black Empire(Gahana). but how fare is Tumbuktu today?.

          There you go again, blaming government — Your urge to blame the government is like an itch which you can’t resist scratching.

          I don’t know about you but my ancestors in pre-colonial and pre- independence and before any government (as we know it today) took care of themselves and their communities Today, the houses which they build are still standing after over 100 years.

          In colonial times, the British, at best, provided primary schools, but collected taxes from everyone. Nevertheless, the communities didn’t wait for governments to come put food on their tables or give handouts. They were doers unlike a lot of you today.

          Look at all those Nigerians paying thousands of dollars to smugglers and ending up drowning. Chineke! These people have thousands of dollars but have no clue how to invest it in business but would rather use it to pay someone so that they can get to Europe and clean offices, toilets and pots.

          • obiora

            I believe You are not the only person that loves Nigeria but my question to you is What is restructuring which Nigerians are talking of if it is not reform too much Government?.

            Bruh!! The matter dey burst my head!

    • Mufu Ola

      Trump have u in mind when talking of “shithole”. I’m sure he never meant all Africans but characters like you.

      • Kallah Bature

        Well answered. Nothing more to add.

  • thusspokez

    The Office of UN Commissioner for Human Rights said on Friday that U.S. President Donald Trump’s reported remarks that immigrants were coming from “shithole countries” are racist.

    Everyone is reacting to the offensive remarks of the dotard in the white-house except Nigerian’s own dotard, Buhari and his government — even though, Nigeria was one of the countries actually mentioned by the US dotard . Buhari is a disgrace! And so is his minister of foreign affairs.

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    I align myself with the sentiment expressed by D.J Trump that Africa is a “shithole”. If truth be told, that is how most non-Africans feel about Africa without voicing it. And, what’s more? They are all right. No one should circumscribe D.J Trump’s freedom of expression. I love him because he always says it as it is. BTW, I don’t see anything wrong in being racist. If I was non-black, I would be more than racist towards a race that has contributed NOTHING to humanity other than infectious and contagious diseases.

    • Julius

      Of course you will because you are the shit in that hole…Glad you finally admitted to that simple fact. You are an animal as well. You LOVE him because he always says it as it is..so you agree with him that all mexicans are rapist as well…Good for you !

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        You are a multiple bast*ard. What’s my business with you?

        • Julius

          A shithole like you shouldn’t have any business with civilized people. You are correct, you have nothing with me !!

          • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

            Turd, bugger off!

          • Julius

            Smh, can’t you do better than talking like a 5 year old ?

          • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

            Screw your mum, twerp.

          • tundemash

            The fact that u do that to your mum doesn’t make it right so do not advise others to copy your cursed behaviour. Omo ale.

          • Julius

            Abi oooo. You can tell that that’s what he does. An Abomination from a perverted soul. Happy New Year Tunde !

          • Julius

            Nah, I don’t do what you do to your mother with your father. You need to stop doing that to the old woman who simply gave birth to you instead of flushing you down the toilet. Poor woman .

          • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

            Stick it up that smelly orifice half-way up or down your mum’s anatomy.

          • Julius

            I know you’ve had a lot of practice with your mother. What a shame. God punish you !

          • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

            Send me your mum’s address so I can go and stick my foot in her pussy.

    • Mufu Ola

      You’re the typical shithole that d demented Trump is talking about.

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        And, you are what?

        • Julius

          A prince, an African !!!

          • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

            You are a POS (a pile of sewage).

      • Julius

        Indeed.. good to e-see you bro n happy new year!!

    • Vita

      I align with your supposition. Trump expressed the view of the West on Africa. The onus lies on Africa to show that it loves itself and ready to take destiny in her hands. A better way to start could be for the leaders and other Africans who stashed wealth overseas to start repatriating them for use and development in Africa. Secondly, corruption should be criminalised and treated as terrorism against Africa. I rest my case!

    • Starks

      While aligning yourself and ploughing along the same reasoning path as Trump, you have only displayed all your complexes and insecurities! I urge you to independently research more about your history and know who you are as a black man! Stop trying to live in denial and beliving a conquerors narrative of the conquered. Know who are and be proud of your heritage!

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        You have no right to dictate to me, what to post online. It is exactly this your kind of attitude that makes African countries veritable shitholes. If you know the meaning of “living in denial”, you’d realize that you are the one that is guilty of that description. I stand by my post.

    • tundemash

      Omo Ale Orafidiya, I guess Trump’s grandfather who immigrated to United States is also from a shit-hole country. Low self-esteem people like you glorify the Trump racist !

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        Bastar*s like you who wallow in denial are the problem of shithole countries like Nigeria.

        • tundemash

          Mor0n, i simply asked you if your racist mentor’s grandfather is also from a shit-hole country since he also migrated to America ?
          You are just a cl0wn suffering from personality disorder ! Omo Ale.

          • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

            Cretin, is Germany (where Trump’s parents reportedly emigrated to the U.S. from) in the same category as shithole Nigeria?

          • tundemash

            Omo Ale Orafidiya, you are d@ft beyond reasoning. Has Germany always been what it is today ? Mor0n, u have a choice, leave the shit-country. No one is forcing to stay. Omo ale. You will just be behaving to character; you father was also disgraced in Ile-Ife; you have nowhere you can call home.

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    Trump is simply unfit for office. The people of USA who actually voted such a man into office should take responsibility and remove him as soon as possible.

    Having made my point, it is important to note that Trump does not represent the vast majority of the people of USA.

  • Nigbati

    An unfortunate statement from the United States of America President, even though we known that, countries in Africa can do better . It also support the claims of racism by so many black Africans globally whereby an African with university degree drive taxi for a living in New York,Dallas, New York, or Chicago for a living, all of these are not acceptable in the twenty first century.

  • samjoe

    Thank God for Honest men like Donald trump who will always call a spade a spade i believe he had Nigeria as number one in mind when he was making the shithole countries statement . if anyone has any problem with that he should ask himself is Nigeria in particular making progress? in 2018 our politicians are still promising us pipe borne water bridge and bags of rice

    • tundemash

      I guess Trump’s grandfather who immigrated to United States is also from a shit-hole country. Low self-esteem people like you glorify the Trump racist !

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        You are a buffoon. Donald Trump’s parents reportedly emigrated to the U.S. from Germany. Is Germany a shithole country like Nigeria?

        • tundemash

          Omo Ale Orafidiya, you are d@ft beyond reasoning. Has Germany always been what it is today ? Mor0n, u have a choice, leave the shit-country !

          • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

            You are a pile of sewage. Germany was never on Nigeria’s shithole level.

          • tundemash

            Mor0n, leave the shit-hole, nobody is forcing you to stay. You will not be doing anything out of character if you do so. You have nowhere to cal home as your father was also disgraced at Ile-Ife, omo ale !

      • samjoe

        Is your type of high esteem people who go around telling people that nigeria is sweet . all tribes love themselves everybody is enjoying whereas you know that nigeria is sitting on a keg of gun powder waiting for the boomsday .if trump should travel around our country nigeria and see the level of riches , poverty . crime, nepotism and tribalism with no practical solution. trump will still tell us that we are in a shit hole

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    You are a cretin.

    • Julius

      You should know…2 of them raised you !

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        You are a sewer rat.

        • Julius

          Nope, that would be your father !

          • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

            You and your dad are a heap of compost.

  • Vita

    It is my considered view that Africa should regard the #shithole
    verbal apparition as a wake up call. African leaders should demonstrated that they love the continent by repatriating all their stolen monies
    lodged in the US, Europe, Arab & Asian financial systems.

    Drastic measures must be made to develop Africa as a priority. Let all
    the monies be pumped into the African economy. Corruption should be treated as terrorism in Africa. Death penalty or life jail sentences should be meted against all convicted persons.

    If these steps are pursued, within a decade,
    Africa will be a developed continent. I so submit.

  • Azeez Yahaya

    President trump is a moron everybody knows that,the electoral college that made him president thought as honest as he is to his feelings they thought he could make america great again as he boasts but the world doesn’t seem to agree with his sociopathic honesty
