He said the overt racism of Trump's statements were self-evident and that the American president had "cast a pall" over the symbiotic relationship between Africa and the United States "by impugning the dignity of 1.2 billion Africans".

Prime Minister Theresa May will meet President Donald Trump at the World Economic Forum in Davos next week, Downing Street has confirmed. "In insulting the homeland of their ancestors - who had no say in the genocide and atrocity that was slavery - you have again violated the dignity of those with roots in Africa‚ wherever they are in the world‚" Mohale added.

The joint announcement from Downing Street and the White House was made after reports emerged suggesting Mr Trump would snub Mrs May at the event.

The Prime Minister was left surprised by Mr Trump last week cancelling a planned visit to London to open the new USA embassy.

In a written statement to the Hollywood Reporter , Douglas described the accusations as "an unfortunate and complete fabrication". Braudy recalls thinking that Douglas "thought he could do anything he wanted because he was so much more powerful than I was".

A Trump administration official said Friday the president will be able to travel to the forum despite the possibility of a government shutdown starting at midnight Friday.

The US president has tweeted that he was unhappy that his predecessor, Barack Obama, had sold the current embassy for "peanuts" in order to build a $1bn (£750m) replacement, calling it a "bad deal".

Many in Britain - including the mayor of London - have said Trump is not welcome there and speculated that he canceled his visit out of fear of widespread protests.

Talking of global leaders, apart from Prime Minister Modi and President Trump, UK's Theresa May, Canada's Justin Trudeau, France's Emmanuel Macron, Brazil's Michel Temer and Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu are among the several heads of nations who will be participating in gathering.
