Botswana's government termed the comments made by Donald Trump as 'reprehensible and racist'


Botswana's government has termed the comments made by US President Donald Trump, calling African countries "shitholes" as "irresponsible, reprehensible and racist".


Mr Trump made the comments while discussing a US immigration policy, which he thought citizens from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries should be excluded from.

Botswana said in a statement that it had summoned the US ambassador in the country to ask if the US considered the southern-African nation a "shithole".

It said the phrase was derogatory from a country it has cordial relationship with.

It also called on on regional body Sadc and the African Union to condemn Mr Trump's remarks.
