Mandela Foundation Slams Trump’s Reported Remarks on Leadership
The Nelson Mandela Foundation criticized reported remarks by U.S. President Donald Trump that denigrated the former South African leader.
TheWashington Post reported Sunday that Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and personal fixer, alleged in a new book that the U.S. president did not think Mandela was a real leader and that South Africa had deteriorated under his rule. The Post said Trump also praised the country’s apartheid-era rule.
“We do not believe that leaders who conduct themselves in the way Mr. Trump does are in a position to offer authoritative commentary on the life and work” of Mandela, the foundation said in a statement on its website.
