A foreign reporter asks Trump a detailed question about his Africa policy in general and Zimbabwe specifically.__Trump’s response? ‘We’re looking at Zimbabwe right now.’ That’s it. He then moves on as quickly as possible. He’s incapable of discussing policy.__He has no idea what Zimbabwe is._Zimbabwe and the US’s relations have been frosty since the turn of the Millenium. America imposed sanctions against the government of the then President Robert Mugabe.
