Museveni professes love for 'straight-talking' Trump

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni yesterday hailed Donald Trump for speaking "frankly" to Africans, after the USA president unleashed a storm by reportedly describing African nations as "shithole countries".

"Donald Trump speaks to Africans frankly. I don't know if he's misquoted or whatever, but when he speaks I like him because he speaks frankly".

Speaking at the last session of the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) in Kampala, Museveni claimed Trump should be commended for not being economical with the truth. "But he talks to Africans frankly", Museveni added. "Africans need to solve their problems", he wrote.

It's from this interval Museveni commended President Trump for being frank and telling Africa that they are a weak continent, "Africa needs to solve their own problems; you can not survive when you are weak", he reiterated.

Trump has denied using that vulgar language in particular, instead calling the language "tough". "It is the Africans' fault that they are weak", he wrote.

Burnett bought it in February 2017, said Sam Middleton, a real estate broker in Lubbock, Texas, who helped with the purchase. He also headed the Notsew Orm Sands Foundation, funding a wide variety of causes, including medical research and education.

On Monday, people in Haiti, another country that Mr Trump disparaged, protested against the president's remarks. "We are 12 times the size of India, but why are we not strong?"

Museveni's response was in stark contrast to that of the President of the Republic of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo.

The comments sparked furor in the US and overseas, and earlier Tuesday, US Ambassador Deborah Malac apologized to Uganda's speaker of parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, calling Trump's remarks "obviously quite disturbing and upsetting".

The comments came a little less than two weeks after Trump described African nations, along with Haiti and El Salvador, as "shithole countries" whose inhabitants were not desirable as immigrants to the United States.
