CNN news host Anderson Cooper has hit out at President Trump in an emotional speech in defence of Haiti after reports Trump questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from "s***hole countries" in Africa.
"We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties", Duarte said, adding that much like their African counterparts, millions of USA citizens were affected by problems such as unemployment.
Trump's comments were allegedly made on Thursday at a White House meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform.
Akufo-Addo's predecessor, John Dramani Mahama, also criticized Trump's comments in a tweet Saturday.
"We will not accept such insults, even from a leader of a friendly country, no matter how powerful", Afuko-Addo's tweet also said.
And Republican Sen. Tim Scott told Charleston newspaper The Post and Courier that Republican Sen.
"The president´s physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well", the doctor, Ronny Jackson, was quoted as saying in a statement released by the White House.
In 2009 Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, chose Ghana's capital Accra to set out his foreign policy goals for Africa in a speech in which he said he saw Africa "as a fundamental part of our interconnected world". "He said, 'Oh, that's a good line.' "When I talked to him about the impact this has on family unification, in a nation that values families with the flag as the most important symbols of our future, they scoffed at this notion".
President Nana Addo's comments came hours after former President Mahama described President Trump as racist for his remarks. So, in light of what's happened, we're not here to simply condemn the statement.
The comment "truly flies in the face of accepted behaviour and practice", said Ebba Kalondo, spokeswoman for AU chief Moussa Faki.
