Trump is modern Goliath seeking extinction of other nations – Robert Mugabe

Zimbabwe’s President, Robert Mugabe has described US President, Donald Trump as biblical Goliath who only seeks extinction of other nations.

Mugabe said this while speaking at the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly, calling on Trump to embrace peace and dialogue which are the tenets of the United Nations.

The 93-year-old President said Trump threatens the existence of other nations, adding that the US President is a modern version of the biblical Goliath.

He said, “We believe a different and better world is possible. The continued denial of the rights to self-determination to the people of Western Sahara and Palestine, who are living under colonial and foreign occupation, is immoral and an urgent issue for those seeking peace in our time.

“My country is an unflinching advocate of the respect of independent and sovereignty rights of each country. We cannot, however, remain silent when those decisions negatively affect our own welfare.

“And on this, may I say some of us were embarrassed, if not frightened, by what appears to be the return of the biblical giant called Goliath. Are we having the return of Goliath to our midst who threatens the extinction of other countries?

“May I say, today, United States President, Mr. Trump, please blow your trumpet in a musical way towards the values of peace, unity, co-operation, togetherness, dialogue which we have always stood for and which we read in our very sacred document — the charter of the United Nations.

“Upon those values, each nation can build its greatness, including the United States. And it’s the greatness in recognising those values that we will want to be guided by and not by the promise of our damnation.

“Damnation we shall always resist, no matter whence it comes. We have resisted when it was in the form of imperialism, as we fought for our own independence and culture and sovereignty to be masters of our own destiny.

“That is why we call ourselves free today. It is because the monster of imperialism was defeated by us. Bring us another monster by whatever name, he will suffer the same consequences.”
