Ethiopia’s new communications minister said Trump is not good for Ethiopia and Africa

Ethiopia’s newly sworn in communications minister, Dr. Negeri Lencho, said the election of Donald Trump is not good both for his country and for the African continent as a whole and has described him as ‘an extremely neo- liberalist.’  According to Ethiopian local news site, EthioNewsFlash,  Negeri said that Trump is ‘always inward looking’ with less care for the rest of the world.

Second, his immigration policy could affect thousands of Ethiopians who live in the United States. And finally, his political tactics are dangerous.”

The new Ethiopian communication Minister added, Tump may change some of his hard- line policies once he occupies the White House in January. He has described the current U.S- Ethiopian relations as ‘very good’ and ‘longstanding.’
