A few days ago, Trump called some countries in Africa an expletive which I will not repeat. What a short memory he has. Not too many years have passed since Germany – his father’s homeland – was an ‘expletive’ and created a war. Many refugees from Germany and other parts of Europe tried to get to America to escape violence. We did not let them all in – of which we are now ashamed. Germany and all of Europe recovered and now have stable, prosperous democracies.
Personally, I think the future of the world belongs to Africa. The expletives Trump mentioned are countries beset by war and turmoil – a result of the effects on the weather of climate change and of greed for mining riches from minerals used in our computing devices. I think the countries of Africa will come out of the turmoil and rebuild their civilizations. We will want them as friends.
