A tour company in Namibia has turned Trump's slur into a sales pitch
Botswana even summoned the US ambassador to explain Trump utterances while Kenya’s opposition chief, Raila Odinga demanded Trump withdrew the racist remarks.
Inspiring stories of how people, companies and even countries when faced with great challenges rose and turn the very same 'challenges' to their advantage never gets old.
Well, one African country has done just that in relation to US President Donald Trump ‘shithole’ comment.
According to The Washington Post, when US lawmakers presented to President Trump on Thursday the idea of restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations as part of a bipartisan immigration bill, Trump reportedly replied:
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”
Trump then suggested the U.S. should admit more immigrants from places like Norway.
Africans countries and their leaders were furious and demanded an immediate apology from the US as millions took to social media to condemn Trump’s racist remark.
Botswana summoned the US ambassador to explain Trump's utterances while Kenya’s opposition chief, Raila Odinga demanded Trump withdraw the racist remarks terming them as troubling and greatly unfortunate saying President Trump must “unequivocally” apologize for his actions.
While equally condemning the 'shithole' comment,a Namibia tour company has decided to turn Trump’s ‘shithole’ into gold.
Gondwana Collection,has taken Trump’s negative comment complete with his voice and the now ‘infamous shithole’ comment and created a video to market the country as a tourist destination.
The video showcased some of Namibia greatest sights and urged people especially from US to visit the country and enjoy an unforgettable ‘shithole’ experience.
Here is the video.
