Nigeria summons US Ambassador over Trump ‘Shithole’ comments

Nigeria summons US Ambassador over Trump ‘Shithole’ commentsThe Nigerian government has summoned the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Stuart Symington, over the alleged derogatory remarks by President Donald Trump.

Trump reportedly made the remark by referring to immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and Africa as people from shithole countries.

Spokesman of Nigeria’s Foreign Affairs Ministry, Tope Elias-Fatile, said the US diplomat is to meet Nigeria’s foreign ministry officials on Monday.

He, however, did not give the exact time that Symington is to appear before Nigeria’s foreign affairs minister Geoffrey Onyeama but asked journalists to be on standby.
