“Trump/Africa Relations”

U.S. President Donald Trump made his first phone calls to African heads of state, speaking with Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and South African President Jacob Zuma.  Nigeria and South Africa said the calls were made at the request of the president, who until now has said little about Africa or African issues since assuming office last month.
