Nobel Prize for Literature winner, Wole Soyinka, prior to Donald Trump’s emergence as president-elect stated that he would shred his green car and start packing up should Donald Trump wins the U.S Presidential Election.
In a recent interview with Newsweek on Wednesday in New York, following Trump’s emergence as the President-elect, the Nobel prize winner said:
“Why don’t we wait until Trump actually takes office? I’m just going about my normal commitments, but definitely not getting into any more commitments. Let’s put it that way for now,” .
Soyinka also added that Trump’s victory could jeopardize U.S. support in Nigeria’s fight against terrorism.
“One should expect that level of collaboration to diminish. Trump’s mentality is one of, ‘What are we doing there? What business do we have over there?’” Soyinka told Newsweek.
“I foresee Trump dismissing that kind of expectation offhand and closing in, shrinking, becoming smaller in terms of [the U.S.’s] presence in other parts of the world,” he said.
