Ethiopian Prime Minister: China a Model on Job Growth for Ethiopia and US

The Wall Street Journal published on 2 February 2017 an article titled "Ethiopian Premier, a China Ally, Calls Beijing a Model for U.S. on Job Growth" by Matina Stevis. The full article is only available by subscription.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn in referring to job growth said "China has become a model not only for Ethiopia but now even for the new administration of the United States." I am not sure how one reconciles the Trump administration's emphasis on "America First" and China's emphasis on globalization and international trade.
