Republican Presidential Front-runner and American Billionaire, Donald Trump has threatened to evacuate Nigerians from America if he becomes President of the United State of America (USA).
Trump issued the threat on Sunday 17th January, 2016 during a rally held at Wichita, Kansas, claiming that:
“Nigerians and Mexicans have taken all the jobs meant for honest hard working Americans.”
The Presidential Candidate, who tagged Nigeria as a corrupt Nation, noted this as the major reason many Nigerians leave for America.
“We need to get the Africans out. Not the blacks, the Africans. Especially the Nigerians. They’re everywhere. I went for a rally in Alaska and met just one African in the entire state. Where was he from? Nigeria! He’s in Alaska taking our jobs. They’re in Houston taking our jobs.
“Why can’t they stay in their own country? Why? I’ll tell you why. Because they are corrupt. Their Governments are so corrupt. They rob the people blind and bring it all here to spend. And their people run away and come down here and take our jobs!
“We can’t have that! If I become president, we’ll send them all home. We’ll build a wall at the Atlantic Shore. Then maybe we’ll re-colonised Africans because obviously they did not learn a damn thing from the British!” Trump said.
His speech was met with a raucous applause by 10,000 strong, predominantly caucasian audience.
As at press time, the Federal Government is yet to respond to Trump’s speech.
How a racist can have growing ratings in today’s America is nothing short of surprising to me. It just goes to show that racism and discrimination, no matter how free a country America is will around for a long time, especially of Trump becomes President.
