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.
