Trump reportedly used the language at a private White House meeting on January 12, which led to condemnation around the world.
President Yoweri Museveni wasn't even sure Trump had uttered the phrase but said he is a fan of the US president for speaking "frankly" about Africa, according to the Associated Press. He has denied using that language while others present says he did.
Mr Museveni, who has ruled Uganda with an iron fist since 1986, later took to Twitter to shower more praise on the U.S. president. "Donald Trump speaks to Africa frankly".
"America has got one of the best presidents ever", Museveni said in a speech to parliament, becoming a rare voice of praise on a continent that has otherwise reacted with outrage to the USA leader's alleged comments.
"I love Trump because he tells Africans frankly", Museveni said Tuesday, addressing members of the regional East African Legislative Assembly. Africans need to solve their problems. "In the world, you can not survive if you are weak", he said.
"It is the fault of the Africans that they are weak".
"America has got one of the best presidents ever, Mr. Trump".
Museveni's statement comes amid an ongoing debate on Donald Trump's recent vulgar and disparaging remarks about immigration from countries in Africa and Haiti. The US ambassador to Uganda Deborah Malac said that she had found the US president's words "disturbing and upsetting", while Uganda's foreign affairs minister Henry Okello Oryem called the remarks "unfortunate and regrettable".
In 2017, Mr Trump allegedly said that Afghanistan was a terrorist haven; all people from Haiti "have Aids", and that Nigerians would never "go back to their huts" once allowed into the United States, the New York Times reported.
