Oh really? I respect Africa, Trump writes continental leaders

President Donald Trump of the United States has sent a letter to African leaders, saying he “deeply respects” the people of Africa

He also says Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will make an “extended visit” to the continent in March, his first in that role.

The letter dated January 25 came as the continent’s leaders gathered for the African Union summit this weekend in Ethiopia’s capital.
U.S. diplomats have scrambled for days to address shock and condemnation after Trump’s reported comparison of African nations to a dirty toilet.
Trump has said he didn’t use such language while others present say he did.
Many in Africa were taken aback by the comments after nearly a year of little attention to Africa by the Trump administration.
On Friday, Trump met with Rwanda’s president and new African Union chair Paul Kagame at the World Economic Forum, calling Kagame a “friend.”
The 55-nation continental body’s summit is expected to respond to Trump’s vulgar remark.
An AU spokeswoman has said the organisation was “frankly alarmed” by the comments and a number of African nations have spoken out or summoned U.S. diplomats to explain.
Trump, in the letter, claims  the U.S. “profoundly respects” the partnerships and values shared by the U.S. and Africans and that the president’s commitment to strong relationships with African nations is “firm.”
The letter offers Trump’s “deepest compliments” to the African leaders as they gather.
It notes that U.S. soldiers are “fighting side by side” against extremism on the continent and that the U.S. is working to increase “free, fair and reciprocal trade” with African countries and partnering to “safeguard legal immigration.”
