Cuba joins Gambia in stance against Trump’s ‘shithole’ remark

Press release

A declaration from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba through its Embassy in Banjul on Monday strongly condemned the racist and
denigrating statements made by the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, against Africa, Haiti and El Salvador at a meeting in White House.

The Cuban Government indicated that President Trump’s statement is full of hatred and contempt and produced indignation in the Cuban people. The Cuban Government says it is proud of the contribution that throughout its history had made nationals and their descendants from different latitudes, particularly Africans and Haitians, from the moment their nationality was forged.

The Cuban Government announced that it has joined the strong rejection that these statements have attracted around the world, in the countries of the South. It further expressed its heartfelt solidarity with all the offended countries.
