Kampala - Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni on Tuesday hailed Donald Trump for speaking "frankly" to Africans, after the US president unleashed a storm by reportedly describing African nations as "sh*thole countries."
"I love Trump because he speaks to Africans frankly. I don't know if he was misquoted or whatever. He talks about Africans' weaknesses frankly," Museveni said in the capital Kampala to members of the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA).
Trump reportedly used the language at a private White House meeting on January 12, which led to condemnation in the US and around the world.
He has denied using that term, but admitted to using "tough" language at the meeting, and rebutted accusations of racism.
Museveni also turned to Twitter to show his appreciation for Trump's use of language.
