What the Trump win means for the future of SA-US economic relations


The unexpected presidential win by Donald Trump has sent shock waves across the globe, largely because during his presidential campaign a series of highly controversial statements were made by the Republican candidate on women, the fight against terrorism, migration and global warming.

A key concern from the African community has been centred on Trump's stance on the future of US Foreign Policy and US-Africa trade – most particularly post-AGOA trade agreements.
