Donald Trump Deletes Threat To Deport Nigerians, Muslims  From Website

United States President-elect Donald Trump has on Thursday, November 11 made a U-turn by deleting a threat to deport Nigerians as well as Muslims and Mexicans from his campaign website.

Recall that Trump had reportedly threatened to kick Africans, especially Nigerians, Muslims and Mexicans out of the United States because they were taking jobs meant for Americans. The said post was made on December 7, 2015 on his website.

However, checks by Ikenga Chronicles  on his website, www.donaldjtrump.com, on Thursday, night indicated that it had been removed. He was quoted as having issued the threat against Nigerians at a rally in Wichita, Kansas where he called Nigerians ‘corrupt.’

He had said: “To Make America great again, we need to get rid of the Muslims, Mexicans and the Africans, especially the Nigerians. They take all our jobs, jobs meant for honest hard working Americans, and when we don’t give them the jobs, the Muslims blow us up.”

“We need to get the Africans out. 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? Nigeria! He’s in Alaska taking our jobs. They’re in Houston taking our jobs. Why can’t they stay in their own country? Why? I’ll tell you why. Because they are corrupt.”

“Their governments are so corrupt; they rob the people blind and bring it all here to spend. And their people run away and come down here and take our jobs! We can’t have that! If I become president, we’ll send them all home. We’ll build a wall at the Atlantic Shore. Then maybe we’ll re-colonize them because obviously they did not learn a damn thing from the British!”

There are speculations that Trump might have shifted ground due to the overwhelming accolades from world leaders that greeted his victory.

Meanwhile, Thousands of demonstrators have taken to the streets of several US cities to protest against the election of Donald Trump. Many shouted the slogan “Not my president”. Others burned orange-haired effigies of the businessman.

Trump will become the 45th US president after securing a surprise victory over Hillary Clinton. Obama – who had branded Trump “unfit” for office and campaigned against him– urged all Americans to accept the result of Tuesday’s election.

“We are now all rooting for his success in uniting and leading the country,” he said.

Defeated Mrs Clinton also told supporters Trump had to be given a “chance to lead”.

Despite their calls, protesters gathered in several cities across the country. In New York, thousands marched on Trump Tower, attacking Trump’s policies on immigration, gay rights and reproductive rights. Fifteen people were arrested, the New York Times reported.

Protests were largely peaceful but in Oakland, California, some demonstrators smashed shop windows and threw missiles at riot police, who reportedly responded with tear gas.A massive anti-Trump rally shut down the key 101 freeway in Los Angeles. In Chicago, crowds blocked the entrance to Trump Tower, chanting: “No Trump, No KKK, No Fascists USA”

In Portland, Oregon, demonstrators temporarily closed an interstate highway, while in Washington DC, protesters held a candlelit vigil. Organiser Ben Wikler told the crowd: “We are here because in these darkest moments, we are not alone”

Demonstrations also took place in Philadelphia, Boston, Seattle and San Francisco, among other cities.
