In Nairobi, Kenya

In Durban, South Africa

Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the U.S. with the lowest approval ratings in recent times.

    Hahahahahahahaha!
    Don’t tell me these pathetic Africans have joined in this laughable act of idiocy and crybaby madness.
    In a continent plagued by disease, poverty, war, constant abuse of Human Rights and a lack of infrastructure, you would think that they’d put more effort into trying to alleviate their endless enigmas but noooooo, they are brainwashed by lefty propaganda and rhetoric to foolishly pursue something fruitless.
    How many of these people protested against Kabila in Congo or Jammeh in Gambia when actual lives and rights were under threat?
    Why does nobody care about the people being killed in CAR?
    How many of these foolish Nigerians protested against Boko Haram killings, the Southern Kaduna massacres or the Herdsmen attacks?
    Your OWN president said his wife belongs in the kitchen and they don’t do jack to rebuke the idea of female bondage that the number 1 man in the country is planting in the minds of his fellow Nigerian men who already have deplorable minds.
    What a sorry set of pathetic people.
    So beta, so cringeworthy. The African continent is truly a lost cause.

      Majority of the African’s protesting against Trump belong to the Elite class and have a Eurocentric view of the world. They may be Nigerians by Nationality but their mind and soul isn’t. Many of them don’t speak a second language only English and spend their summers in the U.S and U,K, They spend $$$ on designer clothing and only consume foreign brands. Pretty much an assimilated european with black skin. Most of us are and don’t even know it. I am equally guilty of being Eurocentric but I am aware of it. .

    Wow! Why are some Africans like this? Why???? So, they heard people were protesting and decided to join in? I really just wanna slap some sense into them.
    For yankee, If your boo is beating you, just pick up the phone and the cops will be there in minutes to arrest the culprit. Can kenyans and Nigerians boast of the same? If you can show evidence of discrimination in yankee, that’s a lawsuit with you smiling to the bank, can Nigerians say the same thing?
    In 2017, it’s sad we still have to talk about agbayas in their 60s marrying young children but these people wanna be protesting against Trump??

      God bless you.
      Why many of them do not condone trump not because they hate him, but instead what he stands for. The point of the march is to affirm to the new trump admin that they have an obligation to all the citizens especially women ( healthcare), civil, lgbt and stuff that Obama administration focused on.
      It’s about equal opportunities for women and the right to do what we want with our bodies (abortion) . Religion aside, the state or federal law should have no business to what a woman does with her health decisions . Period.
      Trump has made fun of Mexicans , disabled people, Muslims and has belittled women . Grab them by the P*%#y. Made weird comments that degrade women’ and such.
      A lot of women understand the implication of having the new President and Vice President and they are trying to get their voices heard.
      It’s not in direct correlation with Trump
      Dunno if I made a little bit of sense.
      Women….Men and children Are making a stand here for everyone of us who share and believe in the same cause

      What has Trump done at the moment to warrant such unfair treatment? For God sake, the man only got inaugurated! As for these jobless Africans, most especially the Nigerians, receive sense in the name of whosoever you believe in… have you people protested against Buhari and the baggage he came with? Stupid as stupid can be!

      As for you madman. #StayMad.

      If you sat down or stood up to type what you just wrote and asked what has trump done to deserve this ?
      Please google dumb sh*t Donald trump has said.
      Made fun a disabled person. He’s racist. He hates Muslims and wants to barn them from the US. He has zero regards for women. He prevented black people like you from living in trump towers….he made incestous remarks about his daughter ….he thinks all Mexicans are illegals . He has no understanding of what immigration is or what it has done to America. He seems to have forgotten than America was started on immigration . Now let’s move to pence the VP, the guy who wants to stop abortions ???? Hmmmmmm…..
      Please google …..get educated and stop calling people stupid. Look in the mirror bruhhhh!!!

      @ Tees: Did you miss the part I said “done at the moment”?

      There is absolutely no reason to protest and cause unrest over Trump presidency NOW. The man has done no wrong NOW, he only won the presidency, which obviously means he has supporters who I must say have shown true class..

      Trump didn’t fight or lash at someone who didnt deliver the first blow. GIVE TRUMP A CHANCE!

      I’m curious how you pro-abortionists manage to convince yourselves that abortion is somehow ethical??? They are various forms of birth control that guarantee prevention of conception ranging from the high 90s—-100%.

      Just because the foetus is in your womb doesn’t make it your “body”, physically its the baby’s body, genetically its half his fathers and that’s without getting all philosophical about souls, e.t.c. When the abortion is done, the woman’s body is fine, the baby/foetus on the hand, dead.

      That debate isn’t a closed one, yet.

      As for the other reasons given about Trump, meh. Immigration has historically been occasionally stopped in America, it goes through its boom and busts, he makes fun of everybody, Derrick Rose I believed once lived in the Chicago Trump tower, He definitely lodged Jenniffer Hudson at Trump tower after her tragedy, he mocks everybody who crosses him and he didn’t say all Mexicans are bad, “some I assume are good people”.

      Further don’t polls show that most Americans favour reduced immigration???

      As for “grab her by the pussy”, that is one of the more absurd controversies ever!!! Even Barry sef done grab cat. But jokes aside, people forget that Trump came of age in the Sinatra, ‘Don Draper’ era and he’s a damn celebrity, of course he’s grabbed. If nah Pope Francis I’d understand the brouhaha.

      When people are pro choice thattdoesn t mean they want abortion. We want access to contraceptives for all who are in need. Abortion is a physically an emotionnally traumatic experience and nobody wishes to go through itjustfor the sake of it. They don t want people to abort they don t want to make contraceptives accessible yet they are the same people complaining about their tax money going to help feed and shelter these same children. What solution have they provided? Plus am sorry to say but in America having children without being able to take care of them is one of the best ways to keep the cycle of poverty going.

      This is the same rhetorical game that’s played with feminism. But as somebody with eyes watching the West, which is fought for more, abortion or contraception? Because from my POV celibacy, condoms and contraceptive medical operations even are some of the cheapest products/procedures on earth.

      Getting cheaper still.

      Obama promoted evil – even trying to force African Leaders to legalize that evil. Soon you would march in support of bestiality and give out your children in marriage to elephants, dogs and cross-breed with foxes!!! Sick, evil worl flying in the face of God’s Word.
      You can see how most of the word rush into the broad and wide way of DESTRUCTION like Soddom and Gomorrah.

      @TeeS… And what matches have done against Buhari”s administration?
      You think everything is okay?
      Not even when it took him seven months to appoint ministers amidst falling oil prices?
      That was perfect?
      See, I don’t go with the flow.
      I always think before acting.

    People can walk and chew at the same time. They can be concerned with matters at home & also be concerned, as women, that a well known sexist is now leading the most powerful country on earth. Please stop pretending that you don’t know that women’s rights activists in Nigeria, Kenya & South Africa have gone on several marches for multiple causes including the Chibok, anti-mini skirt laws & even apartheid. Stop pretending also that you don’t see all the white people in the pictures who obviously aren’t African. That alone should let you know that a sizeable portion of this crowd is American even including the black ones so they’re free to demonstrate about issues affecting their country.

    Nigerians? ?
    Didn’t pro Biafrans March in support of Trump?
    Speak for yourself!
    Hope those Nigerians will be shot just as the protesting pro Biafrans! !!!

    As for me, am giving the man a chance. He just got into office. I would rather match against Buhari, who has been ruling Nigeria for almost two years with nothing to show for it!

      @ nnenne
      You are truly in support of IPOB demonstrators being shot and killed? Really? Just for organizing a non-violent rally? I’d take it from your name that you are Igbo, Nnenne. I lost three years of my teenage life fighting for Biafra and protecting you, which is the reason your stupid, ungrateful ass is alive today. I was only 13 years and in my second year in high school when hostilities began. I joined the Biafran army at age 14 and survived that war of attrition forced on our people. My innocence was taken away from me as a result of what I saw and what I did in that war. I had a very bright future pre that war because my parents were considered well off. But the war changed all of that. I was only able to go to a university in 1980 as a result of the economic fallout from that conflict.
      But why am I even wasting my time telling you all this? You have living parents, don’t you?

    Nigerians are crazy. No one came out to march on aso rock when all girls are being married in the north. No one is marching in aso rock for lack of electricity, increasing price of garri, poverty all round. No one is marching on aso rock for the injustice done to the people of the Niger delta, the destruction of their land, their soil, their livelihood, their health. No one is marching on aso rock for the senseless killings on southern Kaduna. No one is marching on aso rock against Fulani herdsmen. Yet una the join Americans wey get light, good road. Their fears are things like gay laws and shit. Nigeria how their matter concern una. No be say your president get invite go inauguration. If you like don’t wake up, the whiteman is already tired of our bullshit. So soon. There would be no place to run or hide. Make una get sense. Na sunday so I no wan curse person. Msheewweee
