Uganda’s president says he loves President Donald Trump and that he should be praised for not mincing words.
“I love Trump because he tells Africans frankly,” President Yoweri Museveni said Tuesday, shortly after the US ambassador reportedly apologized for Trump’s recent reference to African nations as “shithole countries.”
“I don’t know whether he was misquoted or whatever. But he talks to Africans frankly,” Museveni said. “In the world, you cannot survive if you are weak.”
The Ugandan leader was addressing members of the regional East African Legislative Assembly.
