Ugandan President: ‘I Love Trump’ For Speaking ‘Frankly’ About Africa
President Trump may have alienated some Africans with his “shithole countries” remark but Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni isn’t one of them.
“America has got one of the best presidents ever,” Museveni said Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. “I don’t know whether he was misquoted or whatever. But he talks to Africans frankly. In the world, you cannot survive if you are weak.”
Museveni’s comments came just weeks after comments Trump made about Haiti and other African countries surfaced in the press.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump reportedly asked, although he denied using that language. (RELATED: Cory Booker Had ‘Tears Of Rage’ When He Heard ‘Shithole’ Comment [VIDEO])
The comments sparked a backlash both domestically and abroad. A group of African ambassadors called Trump’s comments “outrageous, racist and xenophobic” and demanded an apology.
Museveni, however, remains a huge Trump fan.
