Prime Minister Najib Razak says it is too early to conclude on the effects of the policies of United States President-elect Donald J. Trump on the global economy, including Malaysia.
He said Trump might have realised that some of his statements or plans mentioned during the election campaign could not be realised because implementation would cause negative reaction from others.
“Trump is thinking about what he will do when he officially gets into office in January 2017,” he said in the question-and-answer programme in conjunction with the Umno General Assembly 2016 here today.
Najib said despite the uncertain economy, the global community should not jump to conclusions on what would happen but wait until Trump starts his term as the president.
He said such political developments were a normal democratic process which happens in many countries, not only in the United States, but also in Europe.
