US President Donald Trump has said Egypt might blow up Ethiopia’s mega dam Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) if a deal over its operation is not reached between the two African nations. That was reported by some media on October 24, 2020.

According to the reports, President Trump made the controversial and rather inflammatory utterance during his announcement of deal reached by Sudan and Israel to normalize relations, that his administration brokered. It is not known whether Trump’s utterance is based on information he got from Egypt, US intelligence services, or just his own belief.

Ethiopia is said to have lambasted Mr Trump’s utterance and summoned the US ambassador in Addis Ababa over the matter.
