Trump Administration: Africa, Security, and China

The Hill published on 19 March 2018 an article titled "Trump's Africa Policy Takes Form with Focus on Security (and China)" by Landry Signe, fellow at Brookings Institution, and Nathaniel D.F. Allen, fellow at the US Institute of Peace.

The article concludes that Trump's efforts to refocus US policy in Africa in a direction that is more realpolitik is not a huge departure from previous Republican administrations. Yet by prioritizing security and cutting back on aid and trade, the US may weaken its long-term strategic position in Africa.
