Trumps Africa Comments Boon for China

National Public Radio posted on 16 January 2018 a commentary titled "Trump Insults Will Nudge African Nations Closer to China" by Ismail Einashe, a British-Somali freelance journalist.

The author said that Trump's comments disparaging Africans, along with his administration's travel ban and the threat to cut aid to African nations that voted in the UN against Trump's Jerusalem decision, send a clear message: the United States is retreating from the post-1945 international system it created, taking an "America First" position on global issues. China is steeping into the vacuum created by Trump in Africa.
