Would Biden Presidency Reinvigorate U.S.-Africa Policy?

Rebuilding ties with Africa will be a top priority for Joe Biden if he wins the U.S. Presidential election in November, senior Democrats said during an online fundraiser focused on U.S.-Africa policy. Speakers representing the campaign on the call included two women under consideration by Biden as his vice-presidential nominee - national security and international diplomacy expert Susan Rice and House of Representatives member Karen Bass, who has focused on Africa policy in the U.S. Congress, along with Senator Chris Coons, who sits on the Foreign Relations Committee and formerly chaired the Africa Subcommittee..
