The purpose of his visit to Ethiopia and to the region is said to be promoting trade relations between United States and African countries.

While China has a strong economic presence in Africa, the United States has a growing political and cultural influence in countries like Ethiopia.

  1. If the Secretary of State withheld foreign aid until said country used the system of Ranking the Vote, like Australia and New Zealand currently do their elected representatives would be more to the public acceptable than are currently elected! Fewer elected Fascists! Fewer elected Communists! Fewer radical Islamists! More compromise, Liberals and real Christians!
