Geneva: US President Donald Trump calling African nations as shithole countries came in for sharp criticism from the UN Human Rights Commission.
UNHRC spokesman Rupert Colville said: “These are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States. There is no other word one can use but racist.”
“You cannot dismiss entire countries and continents as 'shitholes', whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome. These are human beings, not commodities,” he added. The comments have drawn widespread condemnation.
