Residents of Cape Town branded US President Donald Trump a racist on Saturday over his “shithole countries” rant. One resident went as far to say that Donald Trump must be 'psycho', with another insisting that the US and Europe’s influence and involvement with Africa is far more corrupt than any of their own dealings. Another resident had a positive take on the comment: «Trump, personally I... Еще'm not mad at you man, you know you can't hate a dog for barking. I know you're a racist — I can't hate you for that. I also love my people above everyone else.» A driver in the city centre gave a more direct stance: «he always had that attitude towards Africa and now it came out into the open. He is utterly racist and doesn't want anything to do with Africa.» Donald Trump is alleged to have said «why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?» during a Thursday Oval Office meeting with a handful of members of the House and Senate. He then allegedly added «we should bring in more people from places like Norway.» Trump reportedly denied making such comments on Friday, during a meeting in which he rejected a bipartisan deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme.
