When American Billionaire Donald J. Trump was declared the winner of the U.S. elections over the Democratic nominee Hillary R. Clinton, all hell seemed to break lose. Fear was the order of the day and even as this writer writes this disturbing article, protesters are still marching the streets of American cities protesting against President-elect Donald Trump and his recent appointment of Stephen K. Bannon, a right-wing media provocateur as senior counselor and chief West Wing strategist of the White House. Many see Bannon's appointment as Trump's embrace of the fringe ideology long advanced by Mr. Bannon. But maybe...just maybe President-elect Trump isn't such a bad thing as compared to "life in the free world" under Hillary Clinton. The chilling/alarming video below is a short clip about Hillary Clinton's role model; a woman she strongly admires and looks up to, Margaret Sanger.
American billionaire and presumptuous republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump may not necessarily have the convincing support-base from the black communities in America and around the world but he is certainly a force to be reckoned with in the forthcoming general elections in the United States against former First Lady and former Secretary of State, Senator Hillary Clinton. His thought provoking rhetoric and uncontrolled outbursts have captured headlines worldwide drawing strong criticisms from opposition members and even members of his own political party, the RNC. For those of us living here in Africa, what effect does this whole "telemundo-like" saga of an election have on us and what do we as Africans and as Africa stand to gain if either candidates reach the White House come November 2016?
