Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe on Thursday went hard on United States President Donald Trump, cautioning him about the propensity for the ‘bullying’ procedures in tending to pressing overall issues.
Watching out for the UN General Assembly, the veteran Zimbabwean pioneer reproved Trump for his harsh approach to manage world issues.
“Some of us were embarrassed, if not frightened, by what appeared to be the return of the biblical Giant Gold Goliath. Are we having a return of Goliath to our midst, who threatens the extinction of other countries?” Mugabe said in apparent reference to Trump’s threat earlier this week to obliterate North Korea over its nuclear arms programme.
He called on the American president to uphold the UN values of unity, peace, cooperation, togetherness and dialogue.
“It is the greatness in recognising those values – unity, peace, cooperation, dialogue (and) togetherness – that we would want to be guided by the United States and not by the promise of our damnation.
“Damnation we shall always resist, no matter whence it comes from,” said Mugabe, himself the subject of a negative onslaught from the West since 2000 when he forcibly took land from white commercial farmers
