Onu: "Parole Trump vergognose e razziste"

Onu:

La frase del presidente Usa, Donald Trump in una riunione nella Sala Ovale della Casa Bianca ha fatto il giro del mondo in pochi secondi sollevando un vespaio e costringendo gli stessi uomini vicini a Trump a rimediare.

"Basta gente che arriva da posti di merda", avrebbe detto Trump mentre si discutevano i programmi di protezione a favore dei migranti provenienti da Haiti, El Salvador e alcuni Paesi africani, tra cui la Nigeria. Il presidente, come al solito su Twitter, ha negato di aver mai usato l'espressione "shithole countries', pur ammettendo di aver usato "Un linguaggio duro". L'Unione africana si e' detta quindi "allarmata", bollando le parole di Trump come "inaccettabili" e chiedendo che si scusi. In effetti, sembra davvero difficile che il presidente americano, peraltro dalla stanza del potere e delle decisioni storiche di ogni presidente, possa aver proliferato simili affermazioni.




Anche il Congresso USA ha condannato le parole di Trump come "razziste e divisive". Il presidnte ha rinunciato alla visita in Gran Bretagna per inaugurare la nuova ambasciata americana. E volevano che andassi a tagliare i nastro. Aggiungendo poi: "Perché dovremmo volere immigrazione da questi paesi?"
