South Africa, in particular, has been steadily shifting its foreign policy away from the West towards China for the past five years. Now, with the election of Donald Trump, Pretoria "should no longer count on Washington in the international community as its done in the past" warns University of the Witswatersrand international relations professor John Stremlau. Dr. Stremlau joins Eric & Cobus to discuss why he thinks president-elect Trump is such a threat to African stability and how this new direction in U.S. foreign policy could re-shape Africa’s international relations.
Join the discussion. Do you think it’s premature to be worried about president-elect Trump’s foreign policy in Africa and how it might damage relations with Africa while helping China’s engagement on the continent? Tell us what you think?
