The continent of Africa is usually forgotten by most American admins that is until it is needed for one policy or another….
I know it is too early to tell just what the approach to Africa by the Trump boyz will be….but there has been a few articles written about what the possibilities could be…..
The President-elect of the United States has had precious little to say about U.S. policy toward Africa since his shock election victory in November 2016.
But a four-page list of questions on U.S. policy in Africa, submitted by Donald Trump’s transition team to the State Department, has indicated a possible skepticism about the country’s counter-terrorism policy in Africa, and also raises questions about the continuation of aid programs.
Some Americans look at Africa as some sort of third world Hell hole….but some of the fastest growing economies are on the African continent….the US might profit from paying closer attention to the workings in Africa.
We will see just how the continent is approached by a new admin at the wheel of state.
His, Trump, first test may be the situation in Gambia…..as well as the army mutiny in Ivory Coast……war is brewing and the world will look to the US for some sort of leadership….
You are thinking “not a big deal”?
Keep in mind the US has troops stationed in the region and it is not like we are opposed to nation building…..
A situation to watch…….
