Trump can’t go rogue, laws will keep him in check

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The elec­tion of Don­ald Trump as the 45th US Pres­i­dent has elicited mixed re­ac­tions. Trump met Pres­i­dent Barack Obama yes­ter­day. The tran­si­tion has started. What many are afraid of is that Trump will undo ev­ery­thing Obama did, in­clud­ing projects that di­rectly af­fect Kenyans. Some think im­mi­grants in the US will be de­ported. But in his vic­tory speec h, his tone ap­peared to have changed and he promised to work with in­ter­na­tional part­ners. There are also le­gal struc­tures that won’t al­low him to be a rogue Pres­i­dent as feared.
