Trump stunned lawmakers in a recent White House meeting on immigration when, according to multiple reports, he asked, "Why are we having all these people from s--hole countries come here?"

The group said in the statement that it "demands a retraction and an apology". "Comments our leaders make today may have far-reaching diplomatic consequences for us in the near future".

As protests and condemnation continue to escalate, USA diplomats are scrambling to try to fix the damage caused by President Donald Trump's reported "shithole" insult to African countries. "Africa and the black race deserve the respect and consideration of all".

So far, neither Trump nor any other USA officials have apologised. The populations of the African countries and Haiti are mostly black.
