Caribbean 360 is reporting United States President Donald Trump has been declared “persona non grata” by Pan-Africanists and socialists in response to comments made by Trump about Haiti and El Salvador. The author reports:

“In a strongly worded declaration issued on behalf of the people of the Caribbean over the weekend, the groups said Trump is not welcomed in the region.

‘We, the undersigned representatives of the sovereign people of the Caribbean, hereby declare that president Donald Trump of the United States of America is persona non grata in our Caribbean region,’ stated the declaration prepared by ‘Pan-Africanist and socialist popular forces of Barbados’ and endorsed by scores of organizations from across the region.

‘We further declare that as a persona non grata, President Donald Trump is not welcome in any territory of the Caribbean; and we hereby confirm that we – the Caribbean people – will petition our governments, vehemently protest against any Trump visit, and engage in popular demonstrations designed to prevent President Donald Trump’s entry into any portion of the sovereign territory of our Caribbean region.’”

U.S. President Trump reportedly referred to the Caribbean nations and African nations as “shithole countries” during a meeting on immigration quipping the U.S. should seek out immigrants from Norway.
