Will Top Trump Africa Posts Finally Get Filled?

After two abandoned attempts to fill the highest Africa position in the White House, the Trump team is considering a career intelligence officer, Cyril Sartor, to become senior director for Africa at the National Security Council. A nomination for the other senior Africa policy post - at the State Department - may be forthcoming, insiders say. The nominee is expected to be J. Peter Pham, director of the Africa Center at the Atlantic Council.
