Former Chief Minister condemns Trumps comments on Haiti and African nations

Mr Austin Bramble

ZJBRadio news has reported that former Chief Minister of Montserrat has joined the chorus of voices condemning the recent reported racist remarks made by US President Donald Trump about Haiti and African nations.

The report says that Percival Austin Bramble, second Chief Minister of Montserrat and one of the signatories to the original Treaty of Chaguaramas which established CARICOM in July 1973 has now joined the fray stating that the status quo concerning the United States has never changed over the years. He says a distinction between a national of a country recognizing the short comings of his country out of concern for the welfare of his people, with a desire to see needed change is justifiable.

He states that this same categorisation cannot be aligned to Donald Trump, who he describes as a racist President. The former Chief Minister points out that Trump’s unjustifiable purpose is clearly the continuation and advancement of a system, which results in the impoverishment of the weak for the enrichment of the strong.

Mr. Bramble says there is no conflict between anger at Donald Trump’s statement and recognition of the atrocious mess which obtains in many third world countries. He says Donald Trump is not calling for countries he named to pull their socks up, but rather to abuse the countries because their citizens are poor and black.

Earlier this week the Caribbean community grouping CARICOM, the University of the West Indies and others have condemned President Trump’s remarks while about ninety Pan African organizations and leaders in the Caribbean have declared him persona non-grata to the region after his derogatory remarks about Haiti and African countries.
