Rabat (UNA-OIC) � The Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) has condemned the racist and offensive remarks by US President Donald Trump against African countries and people of African descent.

ISESCO said in a statement: “These racist and derogatory abuses against entire nations and peoples by a head of state made up of immigrants from all over the world is a moral decline that is contrary to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the values and principles of humanity enshrined in international covenants and conventions and acts of hatred that incite racism and contempt for others.

The Organization affirmed its solidarity with the African countries, including ISESCO member states, and with all those of African descent in rejecting and condemning these abhorrent racist statements.

President Trump’s reported derogatory comments about African countries and Haiti drew condemnation from around the world. In a tweet on Friday, Trump denied using the term shithole to refer to some countries during a private White House meeting on Thursday but conceded he used tough language during the negotiations.
