Trump at 73: 3 absurd reasons Nigerians detest US President

- Advertisement -

By Aishat Salihu
Ever since his election and inauguration into office as the President of The United States of America in 2017, Donald Trump has embodied controversies.
From implicating tweets to contentious policies, the 45th US president has shown an unrivalled knack
for the spotlight. Whether good or bad.
This hasn’t been well-taken by Africans, especially Nigerians. That said, here are three possible reasons he isn’t that loved in this part of the world as he clocks 73.
Crude remarks about Nigerian immigrants
Trump had pledged to massively deport illegal immigrants residing in the United States. He even went as far as claiming that when Nigerians see America they never want to go back to “their huts”. This irked many Nigerians, especially as the country is the United States’ largest trading partner on the continent.
Criticism of American birthright citizenship
The President of the United States of America had unequivocally criticized birthright citizenship for creating “anchor babies”.  A practice in which most elite Nigerians have adopted for birthing their children especially with the aim of accessing better health care and an automatic citizenry awarded on the children birthed on the United States soil.
Xenophobic comments before his emergence as the President
Before assuming officer, Trump derived pleasure in demonising any and every person, country, culture and race that tickles his fancy. He had at some point narrowed down his vicious attacks on Blacks and Africans by accusing Nigerians of stealing American jobs.
According to Trump, “We need to get the Africans out (of the USA). 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?.”
