Trump’s plans for Africa


Donald Trump's election as the 45th President of the United States of America was announced on 10 November 2016 - a day set to be remembered in history books.

During his presidential campaign, Trump has made highly controversial and often offensive statements on women, the fight against terrorism, migration and global warming. However, very little has been said about the future of US-Africa relations, leading the African continent to wonder about the impact his presidential win could have on their interests.

SAIIA's Steven Gruzd, Head of the Governance and Foreign Policy Programme, was joined on CNBC Africa by former U.S Ambassador to Tanzania Charles Stith. Together, they unpacked the impact a Trump Presidency might have on the continent.
