Brookings Institution Expert Discusses Trump Administration’s ‘Unclear’ Africa Strategy

Brookings Institution: The Trump administration and Africa
In an opinion piece originally published in French by Jeune Afrique, Brahima Sangafowa Coulibaly, senior fellow and global economy and development director of the Brookings Institution’s Africa Growth Initiative, discusses the Trump administration’s Africa strategy, which he writes “remains unclear.” Coulibaly concludes, “The unique difficulties of this administration in gaining traction on the domestic agenda as well as a plan to revisit U.S. relations with several important U.S. partners suggest that Africa will remain on the backburner for now” (1/2).
