Senior U.S. State Department Official Optimistic About Africa

The top Africa official in the Trump administration says he is an 'Afro-optimist'. In his fist interview since assuming office last month as Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, Tibor Nagy explained why he believes the continent's youth will prove to be better leaders than some of those who have been in charge during "the sad decades after independence."
