Africa and Trump – Africa Today Tv

America First is a major theme of the new US administration. Every country puts its interests first, but the global economy demands a constant give and take. America has traditionally been seen as Africa’s best option. The United States was the top trading partner, a prime source of foreign direct investments, and the preferred ally for developing and utilizing Africa’s considerable natural resource wealth. The world has changed. In 2000, trade between China and Africa was just $10 billion, but since then it has increased at a breathtaking pace. Today, trade is more than $150 billion, more than twice the level of Africa’s next largest trading partner, the United States. Foreign direct investment from the United Kingdom is more than twice the amount coming from the United States. Unsaturated markets, tremendous natural resource wealth, and the highest rates of return on direct investment have crated a whole new scramble for Africa. Today, Africa has unprecedented options, and often options that come with far fewer strings attached. As the United States pursues an America First agenda, will China and other nations continue to strengthen their ties to Africa? And as other nations offer increasingly more attractive deals, will Africans focused on Africa first, end up leaving the US on the sidelines.

We’d love to hear from you!

africa trump administration

On January 20, 2017, the US political landscape changed. As President Donald Trump took office, a different US foreign policy began to emerge. Many of these policies will affect Africa. For some, the administration’s actions are causing deep concern, while others see a potential for new opportunities. Africa Today TV’s special series looks at how the new administration will engage with Africa, and perhaps more importantly, how Africa will engage with the new administration. Join us as we discuss and debate the continually evolving US-Africa relationship while examining topics from both American and African perspectives.

Sundays at 10am, rebroadcasted Sundays at 6pm and 10pm, and Tuesdays at Thursdays at 6pm and 10pm. (All times are EST). Episodes are available online after the premier broadcast.
