Trump's globalisation talk indicates lack of policy experience - analyst

On day 1 of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Chinese President Xi Jinping mentioned his concerns with Trump's comments on globalisation.

Prof John Stremlau, Professor of International Relations at Wits, says there is a global concern because "the world doesn't know what Donald Trump would do - and Trump doesn't know what Trump would do as President because he has never had any policy experience of any kind."

He seems to be an empty vessel when it comes to high office which is astounding.
