Zimbabwe’s Mugabe celebrates Trump election victory

Mugabe is happy to see ‘his friend’  Trump as new American President, according to reports.

With ‘pro-Zanu PF  conservatives’ now in charge of UK, Trump’s victory is another plus for  Zimbabwe’s ruling party.

After being rejected by Obama’s government, Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe is a relieved man following the election of ‘his man’, Donald Trump, as United States’ 55th President.

While Clinton made it clear, she viewed Mugabe as a bad man, Trump, on the other side has been silent and he even made a conciliatory message in his victory speech when he said he will be friendly to those who look at him as a friend.

Trump has a soft spot for pro Mugabe governments of  Russia, Iran and Syria.

A new US president will not mean an overnight change in relations with President Robert Mugabe.

Clinton’s coming to power could have signalled the continuation of hostile US relations with  Zimbabwe.

In her view, Robert Mugabe’s Zanu PF destroyed Zimbabwe and she even made comparisons suggesting if Trump were elected he would do to the US economy what Mugabe has done to Zimbabwe.

As a result Mugabe’s government has expressed a preference for Trump to the extent that the 92 year old leader has even claimed friendship.

Mugabe’s love for Donald trump was first revealed by US lawmakers Chris Coons and Adam Schiff during a visit to Zimbabwe few months ago.

Upon realising that Republicans were not keen to remove sanctions, Mugabe told the America lawmakers that,“Once [Trump] is your president, you’ll wish you’d been friendlier to me,” according to Coons’ retelling of the encounter.
