Trump throws bombshell at Nigerians, says “If I win, you leave

Mouthy Republican frontrunner, Donald Trump is at it again. This time, the billionaire estate magnate turned politician has issued a warning to the Nigerian Community in the U.S., saying he’ll ensure all Nigerians leave America when he becomes president.

Trump who made the threat during a rally at Wichita, Kansas said Nigerians and Mexicans have taken all the jobs meant for honest hard working Americans.

“To 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 don’t give them the jobs, the Muslims blow us up”, Trump said.

“We need to get the Africans out. Not the blacks, the Africans. Especially the Nigerians. They’re everywhere. I went for a rally in Alaska and met just one African in the entire state. Where was he from? Nigeria! He’s in Alaska taking our jobs. They’re in Houston taking our jobs. Why can’t they stay in their own country? Why? I’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 can’t have that! If I become president, we’ll send them all home. We’ll build a wall at the Atlantic Shore. Then maybe we’ll re-colonize them because obviously they did not learn a damn thing from the British!

Moments after Trump made the comments, Nigerian Ambassador to the U.S tried to allay the fears of Nigerians living in the U.S. but his reassurances were met with a pinch of salt especially after Trump’s speech was met with a raucous applause by the 10,000 strong predominantly Caucasian audience at the rally.
