Donald Trump delivering a speech at the United Nations General Assembly

Donald Trump delivering a speech at the United Nations General Assembly

The statement of a person identifies him equally like his actions. We have published a lot of articles, especially for African leaders to be fully aware that Donald Trump is an American leader who is neither interested in Africa nor in their leaders.

There is NO RECORD IN AMERICA’S HISTORY THAT TRUMP HAS BEEN TO AFRICA BEFORE but there are images of his sons Donald Jr and Eric Trump with a leopard and other big game kills in the past. 

Since Trump hasn't been to Africa before, he may probably lack knowledge about the continent. At the United Nations General Assembly, Trump who knew that some African leaders are also not interested in him tried to please them.

Trump said to the African leaders that Africa “has tremendous business potential,” and also praised healthcare advances in a non-existent country. According to him, he has many friends going to your countries trying to get rich.” 

He went on the laud the health system of “Nambia” – which is not a nation, as “increasingly self-sufficient”.

A White House transcript appears to suggest he intended to refer to Namibia, whose President Hage Geingob, also delivered a speech at the assembly. Mr. Trump may also have confused the country with Gambia or Zambia.

The US President twice referred to “Nambia” during his address on Wednesday. The first mention came as he read from a list of the countries whose leaders were in attendance.

He said: “I’m greatly honored to host this lunch, to be joined by the leaders of Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Nambia, Nigeria, Senegal, Uganda and South Africa.”

Mr. Trump later congratulated the nine leaders on attracting businesses from the US.

“Africa has tremendous business potential,” he said. “I have so many friends going to your countries, trying to get rich. I congratulate you. They’re spending a lot of money.

“It has a tremendous business potential and represents huge amounts of different markets. And for American firms, it’s really become a place that they have to go – that they want to go.”

Moving on to African health initiatives, he said: “Uganda has made incredible strides in the battle against HIV/Aids. In Guinea and Nigeria, you fought a horrifying Ebola outbreak. Nambia’s health system is increasingly self-sufficient.”

Calling the name of an African country which doesn't exist became a ridicule on the social media. This also reminds of an article we published about African, European and American children. 

Because of the fragile educational system in Africa, many foreign institutions underestimate Africa, yet African children are very intelligent. 

They can show the geographical position of many European and American countries, including its capital cities, whereby European and American children don’t know much about Africa.

Very often, one of the causes of teenage pregnancy is said to be the lack of education, yet Britain leads with teenage pregnancy, followed by America. Thus, are Africa teenagers learning effectively than European and American teenagers?

Africa should never be underestimated. There is a lot that many including Donald Trump can learn from the continent, to avoid calling any African country 'Nambia' because it doesn't exist.
