Everything now hangs on two tests within the SPD. The first, on January 21, is an extraordinary party conference in Bonn to consider the joint programme. The second, if Mr Schulz wins in Bonn, is a referendum among the SPD’s 450,000 members. Much will depend on whether the document agreed this week is felt by rank-and-file SPD members to contain enough of its own demands to overcome the widespread feeling last year that the party would be better off in opposition than to be the junior party in a Merkel-led coalition for the third time. The absence from the programme of a big signature SPD pledge, at a time when industrial militancy over wages is growing in Germany, will test Mr Schulz’s authority.

Having strong alliances with African nations is also crucial to Trump’s national-security challenges. Africa’s security means American security, too. With the collapse of the Islamic State’s caliphate in Syria and Iraq, several hotbeds of jihadi extremism are in Libya, Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, and Somalia.
