Also on Monday, the head of the African Union slammed Trump’s ban, which affects three African nations, pointing out the history of the mass kidnapping of Africans during the United States’s transatlantic slave trade.
Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma: “Excellencies, it is clear that globally we are entering very turbulent times. For an example, the very country to whom our people were taken as slaves during the transatlantic slave trade have now decided to ban refugees from some of our countries. What do we do about this? Indeed, this is one of the greatest challenges and tests to our unity and solidarity.”
