Trump Calls For Deep Cuts in Aid to Kenya

In its State Department budget proposal, the White House reportedly justifies these cuts as ways of "reducing dependency on U.S. assistance and increasing self-sufficiency" on the part of African nations. The White House also apparently wants to end U.S. support for the African Development Bank and for the Young African Leaders Initiative that former President Barack Obama crafted as a way of wooing Africans who could become influential figures in the coming years.
