Ignorant and undignified president

I NEVER really imagined that Americans would vote for a worse leader than the warmonger, George W. Bush.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s recent most xenophobic and racist remarks to describe some African, Haitians and Arab countries cannot be accepted and seem to surpass Bush’s rhetoric.

Together with voicing their objections and criticising Trump’s garbage bombast, global leaders and especially countries that have been targeted by Trump’s offensive comments should do more to prevent this rubbish that Trump spews every so often. The vulgar language that Trump used festers when ignorance and prejudice are aligned with power, supremacy and privilege.

Since World War 2 , the government of the United States has been manufacturing war all around the world resulting in displacement, poverty and unemployment, and Trump has the nerve to label countries whose populations are not white as “sh*tholes”.

It was the colonial exploitation perpetrated mainly by Western countries such as the United States and other European countries that contributed, and are still contributing, to African and Middle Eastern financial, economic and political problems.

The credible reported fascistic comments should be effectively confronted using every channel to bring this ignorant and undignified president to account. Using diplomatic channels and alternative intervention methods such as mobilising anti-racism institutions, the struggle against Trump’s discrimination policies, his sycophant puppets and imperialism must be intensified.
