The world's most powerful president is reported to have made such derogatory remarks about foreigners during a secret meeting at the White house which subsequently got leaked to the media.

Interestingly, the comments of Donald Trump follow the unfortunate death of a Ghanaian soldier, Emmanuel Mensah who died in the brave attempt to rescue victims of a fire outbreak.

“He brought four people out. When he went to bring a fifth person out, the fire caught up with him", Twum Bredu, his uncle told the New York Times.

So far, Donald Trump has fiercely denied these reports of using foul language against immigrants of colour despite anger and outrage against him by news makers across the globe.

The death of Emmanuel Mensah was dragged up for debate by some Americans who argue the US president has just lost touch with reality.
