Donald Trump is set to meet with West African presidents to discuss deporting African-Americans back to Africa.
We have received details informing us of Donald Trump’s intentions to meet with presidents of the west coast of Africa, where the slave trade originated.
Presidents Alassane Ouattara of Ivory Coast, Macky Sall of Senegal, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra Leone, John Dramani Mahama of Ghana, Faure Gnassingbe of Togo, Patrice Talon of Benin, Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria, Paul Biya of Cameroon, Joseph Kabila of Congo, Denis Sassou Nguesso of DRC, Ali Bongo Ondimba of Gabon, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea, José Eduardo dos Santos of Angola, Alpha Condé of Guinea Conakry, José Mario Vaz of Guinea Bissau, to name a few are set to meet with Donald Trump at the beginning of February 2017 to discuss welcoming African American and Africans to their countries.
These countries where all on the Slave trade routes from Africa to the Americas during the period 1650-1860.
However, people were not only taken from the west coast of Africa, there were also taken from Mozambique, Zanzibar and Madagascar on the east side of Africa. But most of these slaves from the east side were brought to Portuguese controlled Salvador in the state of Bahia, Brazil, along with many other slaves from Angola.
The 500,000 African slaves sent to America represents a mere 10% of the number sent to Brazil, and 11% of the number sent to the West Indies.
According to the estimates of Hugh Thomas (12), a total of 11,128,000 African slaves were delivered live to the New World, including 500,000 to British North America; therefore, only 4.5% of the total African slaves delivered to the New World were delivered to British North America. (map).
Donald Trump does not only intend to send back Afro-Americans but also African people who have made a life in America.
For all of the black people who pledged to leave the country if Trump won the election, he’s opening the door.
Donald Trump, who is being supported in Europe by many right wing politicians such as Nigel Farage in the UK, and Marine Le Pen who might well win the French presidential election in May 2017, may well set a precedent that will be followed by many.
As of the 2010 American census, the total population of the US is 308,745,538. The white population is 196,817,552 and the black population is 37,685,848.
Mr Trump is planning to displace 37,685,848 African-American and African to make America great again. How would that work exactly?
Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state and adviser to Mr Trump who is tipped off to be in the new administration, said the president-elect’s immigration team are drafting executive orders that would allow the new White House to secure the rapid deportation plans.
Were these deportation plans part of ‘Department Of Homeland Security Kobach Strategic Plan For First 365 Days’ that were uncovered back in November.
How would it work? Will all African American have to take a compulsory DNA test to determine which country they will be sent to? Are DNA tests that precise, especially after few hundred years?
