  1. Who cares about the visit of a person who becomes a butcher by collaborating with blood sucker butchers at the helm of power in Ethiopia? This president of the United State has given a blind eye and deaf ear to our people suffering that ranges from arbitrary detention and demoniac torture to extra-judicial execution a the hands of the ethnocentric regime authorities and its vicious security forces. By putting his foot in Ethiopia, he is giving support for the on-going repression in Ethiopia. so why do we welcome this president of United State who gives unprecedented help to the nexus-of-evils?
