Letter: Donald Trump, the only millionaire existing in the United States


Dear Sir:

Recently, the New York Times published an article titled “The eleven facts you should know about Trump’s fortune”, written by Russ Buettner, Susanne Craig and David Barstow.

It is evident that this article is aimed at eroding the figure of Trump with a view to the partial elections of November, as if he himself did not erode it frequently. The article argues that a good part of Trump’s fortune, $400 million, he inherited from his father, who could leave that inheritance thanks to the mishandling he did in his business, tax evasion and others.

The East African Standby Force director Dr Abdillahi Omar Bouh tells Fred Oluoch why it can take a long time to intervene when there is a crisis in the region.

————–——————————-

Why has EASF not been deployed in the trouble spots in the region?

The African Union Summit must decide that a situation is approaching genocide for us to deploy within 14 days.

But we have maintained a 15-member observer mission in Somalia at since 2011. We also carried out technical assessment in Burundi in 2015; and deployed an election observer mission in the Comoros during the referendum in August this year.

It was widely expected that EASF would be deployed in Burundi in 2015; why did you stay away?
