American Billionaire and Republican Presidential Front-runner, Donald Trump, has shot a subtle warning to the Nigerian Community in the United States, after he said all Nigerians would be made to leave the country â€œwhen he becomes Presidentâ€.
He made the â€œthreatâ€ during a rally at Wichita, Kansas. According to Donald Trump, Nigerians ad Mexicans have taken all the jobs meant for honest hard working Americans.
â€œTo Make America great again, we need to get rid of the Muslims, Mexicans and the Africans, especially the Nigerians. They take all our jobs, jobs meant for honest hard working Americans, and when we donâ€™t give them the jobs, the Muslims blow us upâ€, Trump said.
â€œWe need to get the Africans out. Not the blacks, the Africans. Especially the Nigerians. Theyâ€™re everywhere. I went for a rally in Alaska and met just one African in the entire state. Where was he from? Nigeria! Heâ€™s in Alaska taking our jobs. Theyâ€™re in Houston taking our jobs. Why canâ€™t they stay in their own country? Why? Iâ€™ll tell you why. Because they are corrupt. Their Governments are so corrupt, they rob the people blind and bring it all here to spend. And their people run away and come down here and take our jobs! We canâ€™t have that! If I become president, weâ€™ll send them all home. Weâ€™ll build a wall at the Atlantic Shore. Then maybe weâ€™ll re-colonize them because obviously they did not learn a damn thing from the British!â€
His speech was met with raucous applause by the 10,000 strong predominantly Caucasian audience. What this portends for Nigeria in the event of the Trump victory is still unclear, but the Nigerian Ambassador to the US has so far allayed fears of all Nigerians living in the USA, although we gather he has secretly packed his bags and is set to move to Mexico or Canada if Trump becomes President.
We just hope our American cousins have made adequate plans back homeâ€¦..
