'We won't accept insults from Trump' - Nana Addo

"The African Union Mission wishes to express its infuriation, disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr. Donald Trump, President of the United States of America, which remarks dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity", the African Union mission to the United States said in a blistering statement. Botswana's foreign ministry earlier summoned the US ambassador in protest.

"I've never seen a statement like this by African countries directed at the United States".

The African Union said Friday that President Donald Trump's reported description of African nations as "sh*hole countries" broke with "accepted behaviour" and was "extremely upsetting".

Trump denied in a tweet that he used the controversial language.

Addressing the media ahead of the ANC's January 8 statement in East London, deputy secretary general Jessie Duarte described Trump's comments as "unfortunate". At least one more African leader spoke up on Saturday.

Trump spent Thursday evening making a flurry of calls to friends and outside advisers to judge their reaction to the tempest, said the confidant.

Botswana's government on Friday condemned Trump's reported disparaging remarks about developing countries, calling on the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the African Union and all other progressive nations across the world to strongly condemn the remarks.
