Haiti - FLASH : Trump, Chancellor Rodrigue convenes the American diplomat Diallo
Following the insulting remarks attributed to US President Donald Trump by the US press, which would have qualified on Thursday January 11 at the White House several countries whose Haiti of "shithole country" http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-23259-haiti-flash-haitian-government-s-reaction-to-president-trump-s-remarks.html , Antonio Rodrigue, the Minister of Foreign Affairs convened Friday, January 12 Robin Diallo the Chargé d'Affaires of the United States Embassy in Haiti, to discuss with the diplomat the alleged statements of US President Donald Trump.

On the other hand, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) expressed strong reaction in a statement on "the use of derogatory and repulsive language by the President of the United States in respect of our Member State, Haiti"

Text of the CARICOM Declaration :

"The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) is deeply disturbed by reports about the use of derogatory and repulsive language by the President of the United States in respect of our Member State, Haiti, and other developing countries. CARICOM condemns in the strongest terms, the unenlightened views reportedly expressed.

Of additional concern, is this pattern of denigrating Haiti and its citizens in what seems to be a concerted attempt to perpetuate a negative narrative of the country. We are especially saddened that such narrative emerged around the time of the anniversary of the devastating 2010 earthquake which took so many lives of citizens in that country.

The Caribbean Community expresses its full support for the dignified statement of the Government of the Republic of Haiti in reaction to this highly offensive reference. It should be recalled that Haiti is the second democracy in the Western Hemisphere after the United States and that Haitians continue to contribute significantly in many spheres to the global community and particularly to the United States of America.

CARICOM therefore views this insult to the character of the countries named and their citizens as totally unacceptable."
