Interested in Donald Trump?

RUSSIAN Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov made a stopover in Harare, Zimbabwe, on Wednesday during a week-long Africa tour which also includes visits to Angola, Namibia, Mozambique and Ethiopia. "I want to add I am satisfied with the discussions I had with the secretary of state, notably the engagement of the United States to support Africa in the battle against terrorism". Tillerson is also touring African countries in what is his first visit to the continent as US Secretary of State.

Trump went on to ask why the U.S. would want more people from Haiti and African countries, rather than countries like Norway. Trump later denied making the comment.

NAIJ.com earlier reported that ambassadors of the AU to the United Nations demanded an apology from the United States of America over Trump's "racist" remark. The body also almost passed a resolution blasting Trump for "promoting racism, xenophobia and bigotry", according to a draft obtained by the Associated Press and Reuters, before tabling it after Trump wrote a letter expressing his respect for Africa.

He and Faki discussed continued U.S. support to African counter-terrorism forces in Somalia and the Sahel but no new concrete commitments were given.

Trump hasnt announced a signature initiative to aid Africans, such as the PEPFAR program for HIV/AIDS that President George W. Bush started, and many of Trumps budget cuts affect overseas programs that disproportionately help Africa.

"We believe that the summit will be very fruitful and will inject new impetus to Africa's development and China-Africa cooperation", Geng said.

"I received a letter written by President Trump to myself and I shared that with other African leaders".

In the Ethiopian capital, Tillerson commented on China's increasing dominance in Africa, warning countries not to "forfeit your sovereignty".

"China welcomes the diversification of Africa's worldwide partnerships and sincerely hopes that various parties of the global community can increase inputs in Africa".

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson holds a news conference with African Union (AU) Commission Chairman Moussa Faki, of Chad, after their meeting at African Union headquarters, Thursday, March 8, 2018 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Kenya, for example, inaugurated a $3.2 billion railway funded by China past year.

A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Geng Shuang was responding to Tillerson's remarks that China's approach to development in Africa "encourages dependency" that undermines sovereignty and puts stability at risk.

Tillerson said Chinese investments "do not bring significant job creation locally" and criticized how Beijing structures loans to African government. "However, we think it's important that African countries carefully consider the terms of those investments". They are badly needed.
