Donald Trump says Somali migrants are a “disaster” and Minnesota has “suffered enough”

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has come under fire for his xenophobic remarks against Somalis in Minnesota. Trump said Somali migrants are a “disaster” and Minnesota residents have “suffered enough” because of migrants pouring in. The U.S. presidential hopeful has been strongly rebuked by Betsy Hodges, the mayor of Minnesota who has come out in defence of Somalis saying, “Minneapolis is a better, stronger place for having our Somali and East African immigrants and refugees in it”. “Somali people of Minnesota and Minneapolis are not *roaming* our communities, they are *building* them,” Hodges noted.
