Africa with Obama trip: Here Are Some Reactions

Obama is on an Africa trip & too early to say, can he spark a strategic shift in Africa (America’s influence hurt from, i.e. US racist militarized police brutal activity on Black/African). But there some significant strategic shift in Asia (US Iran Deal) & Americas (US Cuba Deal) coming at a time, US trade with Africa, is going down, as US trade with rest up. Parts of Africa also meshed with the Middle East & repressive tyrant regime culture, is contagious. Also China has aligned against ICC, to gain favor with African governments. Collapse of commodities is also hitting economy hard, & I captured a picture for u of news recently on Africa (see following 1/15 to 15/15)
