Was it a diversionary move or did he mean it?

American President Donald Trump’s offer to help end “vicious and violent” conflicts in Africa is raising questions as to exactly what he is talking about and how he would go about it.
“Africa right now has got problems like few people would even understand…It is so sad, it is so vicious and violent,” the US leader argued, noting that to address this, he would build up the US military and bring peace to the continent and indeed the world.
Trump was speaking at the close of a two-day summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, NATo that was held in the Belgian capital, Brussels
Continuing, the US leader revealed that Africa had “got things going on there that nobody could believe in this room…If you saw some of the things that I see through intelligence – what’s going on in Africa – it is so sad, it is so vicious and violent.”
“We want peace for Africa. We want peace all over the world. That’s my number one goal – peace all over the world and we are building up a tremendous military because I really believe through strength you get peace,” the 73-year old leader stated.
