President Obama pledged $7 billion in aid to Africa and Then Warned Africans to be Wary of Exploitation by Other Countries, Including the United States
What the hell is wrong with this president, Why does he hate the United States so much?
During President Barack Obama $100 million trip to Africa, Barack Obama pledged $7 billion in aid Sunday to provide electricity to sub-Saharan Africa. Then Obama warned Africans to be wary of exploitation by other countries, including the United States. Of course he did. Obama is the president of the United States, right? His job is to do things in the best interest of the United States, right? Just checking. Take a good look at all of the exploitation of the continent of Africa over the years,
The United States will extend a hand of friendship but don’t trust us
President Obama pledged $7 billion in aid Sunday to provide electricity to sub-Saharan Africa, as he warned Africans to be wary of exploitation by other countries, including the United States.
“I’m calling for America to up our game when it comes to Africa,” Mr. Obama said in a speech at the University of Cape Town in South Africa, midway through his week long tour of the continent. “We want to unleash the power of entrepreneurship and markets to create opportunity here in Africa.”
Funds from the electricity initiative, dubbed Power Africa, will be distributed over the next five years to six countries — Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria and Tanzania. Mr. Obama said the U.S. wants to help Africa without interfering, as colonial powers did in the past.
“You will always find the extended hand of a friend in the United States of America,” he said.
But on his three-nation tour, the president also has been warning Africans not to automatically trust foreign powers offering help, including the U.S.
Maybe Barack Obama should have warned Americans to be wary of the Obama administration and don’t trust them? And what even might be even more comical is that Obama was giving Africa advice on jobs. REALLY? This president has some set. You mean when Obama gave away tax payer $’s to “green” energy boondoggles he cared whether the jobs would be in the United States and would benefit America? You mean like the jobs that went to China?
“When we look at what other countries are doing in Africa, I think our only advice is make sure it’s a good deal for Africa,” Mr. Obama told reporters in Johannesburg. “If somebody says they want to come build something here, are they hiring African workers? If somebody says that they want to help you develop your natural resources, how much of the money is staying in Africa? … Don’t just assume that folks come here and they’re automatically benefiting Africans. And that includes the United States. Ask questions in terms of what we do.”
