Trump has a selfish approach to issues - analyst

Jackie Cilliers, of the African Futures & Innovation at Institute for Security Studies says although it is still early days, the Trump victory is going to have a huge impact globally.

Issues around climate change and developmental assistance to Africa would probably move down the agenda.

This is a huge surprise. After the Brexit I think it is now clear that democracy in the so-called developed world it is what we call de-consolidating.

Cilliers says former Republican presidents like George Bush have been quite hands-on when it comes to assisting Africa but it is not clear of whats going to happen to developmental assistance to Africa.
