Trump, Africa, and China-Africa Relations: A Chinese View

He Wenping, senior fellow at the Chahar Institute and frequently a spokesperson for China on China-Africa issues, published in China-US Focus on 17 January 2017 a commentary titled "Effects of Trump's Election on Africa and China-Africa Relations."

The author offers a surprisingly negative view of African reaction to the Trump presidency and the likely impact of the Trump administration on US policy in Africa. She also argues that this will provide an opportunity for China to improve even further China's relations with Africa. The flaw in the argumentation is that no one knows what policy the Trump administration will follow in Africa.
