The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday has summoned the Charge d’Affairs of United States Embassy Abuja, Mr David Young to protest against President Donald Trump alleged racist remarks.

“The HMFA (Honorable Minister of Foreign Affairs) will be summoning the US Ambassador today,” the ministry’s spokesperson, Dr Tope Elias-Fatile, said of the Nigerian government response to Trump’s shithole comment.

The US President reportedly made the comment during a meeting with congressional leaders in the Oval Office.

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump allegedly said after being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from the countries in question.
