Rex tillerson had to cut his trip to Africa short and was fired the day after returning to talk about the US role in Africa and how the trump administration is doing against. Its goals there. I'm joined by Yinka. I'd go K. Africa editor for Quartz. Thanks for being with high also on the line. We have judy more. Visiting fellow at the Center for Global Development who previously served as Liberia's Minister of Public Works? Welcome to the takeaway. Things glad to be a part of the conversation Yinka. We've got this big trip right now that That the secretary is concluding right after the. Us Announces Significant List of new countries. On its travel ban. What is the message here from the US to the countries in Africa thanks? It's almost certainly a confused one. It's it's sending mixed signals To the countries that are looking to the United States as a partner if you Are Trying to work with countries you don't. Econ to the same time Be Stopping their citizens from you know going through immigration processes oil making tough people's come into the country At the very time when really America should be working closer with African countries. This is It's a great opportunity for the United States to really sort of take a lead in partnering with with Africa. Right now We are on the verge of the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement which is going to open up trade on the continent Across the fifty four countries and the United States should be at the forefront work into partner with countries and moving forward. Judah anything to add there or I would just start by saying you know it is a good thing that a high ranking. Us government officials on the continent because international affairs the equality importance of a relationship as evidenced in the level number of high level exchanges. So having the American Secretary of state on the continent is an indication to American businesses to the US American citizens wanting to engage the continent that The US government sees the continent is important and so The sector state is visiting. I think that's a good thing but I have to be with With Inca that It it seems as if the the American American policy toward the continent is on one hand given and not a hand taken away at one of the things I adequately is the administration's budget submitted to Congress sees Africa sees the greatest a decline in terms of programs and support. I mean countries like Malawi has just done this. Great job with his democracies he's almost forty four percent decline. Liberia fifty five percent decline Guinea. A one hundred percent decline. So it's hard to imagine that you claim that this is important part of the world but you reducing in terms of your support and engagement with it at the same time. Judy what can you tell us about some of the specific proposals from the trump administration? So I guess we'll go back to the US. Two Way. Trade between the continent and and and in the United States has been declining for a while In two thousand and nine China surpassed the United States as the continent's largest trade partner as so prosper Africa. One of the things it tries to do is to double two-way trade between the United States and an continent and this is a good thing because the continent needs as many partners as a Canon doesn't want to be in in an unbalanced relationship with a single partner and so the idea here is to get more American investment on the continent more American businesses. Doing business on the continent and that's that's one of the most concrete things they're trying to do and one of the ways of doing that is to try to even the playing field for American companies on a continent so American companies have complained that Chinese Turkish And even UK companies have the direct input of the government of support of the government when they're on the continent in American companies didn't so prosper Africa. Christie's deal teams is a whole of government approach that provides support you as businesses wanting to do business in a continent so those are some of the concrete things that the prosper Africa seeks to accomplish. Let's look at the state of China China's investment in Africa Over the last fifteen years closed in on two trillion dollars according to the American Enterprise Institute and according to CNBC China Africa trade. Just two thousand seventeen was more than three times as much as us. Us Africa Trade. This China is simply take Africa more seriously than the. Us does absolutely has the. Here's the key thing to Really the way to think about The China Africa and relationship and compared to the United States. You know the Chinese the huge strategic advantage that the Chinese have who the United States is not necessarily. You often hear about loans. And they're building all these two bridges and we'll have you huge huge cusack. Jim and they do all this great work. All you know some of its controversial for the real the real advantage the Chinese have over over the Americans is the play the long game. They're not they're not just there on a kind of you know what's going to happen in x four eight years election cycle. What they're thinking long term Alicia looking in Africa and they say we recognize this because this was US thirty forty years ago and we can make investments. Yes we can make some money. Yes but we'll be we'll be together with these with these countries over the long term. And what you've seen to see with the United States is. It's just what can happen. Now what can we get out of this right now and really Africa is a long term? You think about this country's is a long term project and it's not just project it's just the reality of the world by the end of the century. Forty percents of old working. People will be Africans. That's just the demographics of the way the world is is changing. So this isn't somewhere you know if you're thinking even if you're thinking America first America I should actually be about. How can we partner with these countries more comprehensively for the long term and not just for Let's cut budgets here. Let's move choose there. It's really thinking about integrating which is really what the Chinese have done Judy when I think about the kinds of images that You know I grew up with in terms of the US view of Africa. Various parts of Africa. You think about the kind of comments that attributed to the president Certainly bordering on either Patronizing or or you know. Just certifiably racist is. Are these attitudes really shaping official policy and you know business.

"Carmelo anthony. Is the last great American ball hawk? It's a great a great headline this school berry that the game has changed so much. There is not a place anymore for the last. Great American ball, hog. And it happened fast man as Alan Iverson is being celebrated today for whatever realness he's giving you in the player's Tribune. Alan Iverson was a guy that we celebrate as a ball hog. And then when the Matt started changing on all of these shots, we realize wait a minute shooting. Forty percent forty times scoring forty points on forty shots. That's not good. A lot of guys can do that defensive Iverson. He had no one to pass to defensive Iverson. That is true. But Carmelo Anthony, according to Kurt gold, very is the last great American ball, hog. I think we should have ceremony. Like if that if we are announcing that that's it. It's over we used to have argument the sad day. I know we used to have arguments. Dominique Wilkins are Michael Jordan Dominique you can't win that way. Michael. You can't win that way. They're ball hogs. Never mind. There has to be another future. Great American ball hog out there. There has to be somewhere. Roaming, the earth. There has to be. Okay. What are you guys got who you who? You nominating. Who's going to unseat? The great American ball, hog Carmelo Anthony from his rightful place on the throne that I don't believe that anyone can get him out. There's a certain big man in Miami that they just avoid passing them the ball because he's a vacuum. Well, wait a minute. That's not the standard Yinka doray. I think how many career assists. Did former net center Yinka DARA have because I don't believe Hassan Whiteside is that kind of bad. At sharing a basketball. I'd like to go through the game logs right now of ink Adare. I'd like to find out what his career average was for says his high season innocence. He averaged zero assists per game for his career yet a high in ninety six ninety seven point one assists per game. Really distributed the ball that year, Dr eight a game has changed so much. We were throwing into that in the. Eleven it's why Gregg Popovich is out here. You know? He sounds like a year old person game doesn't have any beauty in it. Any more? Chasing you off the court with a cane because everybody's draining threes from drones in the parking lot. Yeah. Assan only has zero point six, but that's so much better than you can Kadoorie towns American ball hog because you to be a true American ball hog you have to have volume shooting. You have to be someone who every time. He gets the ball is putting it up forty times a game. Not not Hassan Whiteside fifteen dunks again, Lance Stevenson, if you'd let them that's good. Oh, yeah. That's great for anyone. Let him. That's good. No one will let him. But if you build a team around land Stevenson, he is here for all your great American ball hog need. I'm through two years right now dR has never had a game in which he had more than one assist. Four years. I mean, I'll get to the west. It's weird because Westbrook is reputed as this. But he also has like so many triple doubles and part of that. Oh, no. He's got the beautiful ball hog. He's still allowed to be the rare beautiful ball hog. We don't allow very many of those anymore. The beautiful ball hog is Russell Westbrook. The only beautiful ball hog in basketball. We don't we don't allow very many of those where where where you're going to be a guy because the the career arc of Russell Westbrook has been really fascinating Mike, you want to take a look at what Russell Westbrook is shooting from three this year. Go ahead and look at the number look at it. He is by volume one of the worst career shooters is under thirty percent. No, no, wait a minute. Hold on a second. He's under thirty percents. That was that was last here's Mike under thirty percent would be very kind for where I saw that. Russell westbrook. Was wait until you will happen on my God. I haven't. He's twenty two percents. Oh came up. It was at eighteen percent. The last time I checked he must have had a barrage of threes. In the last week. It was at eighteen percent by volume he is one of the worst three point shooter ever by volume even 'cause Wade he waited till he was like thirty five to be. Okay. I think by volume I think that's a statistical fact I don't think I'm making anything up, but he gets to be a beautiful ball hog because at one season where he had no help whatsoever. We said he's the most valuable player in the league. In his canter running around out there with bleep it. I'm gonna take forty shots is having so much fun, by the way. Just so that you guys know I wanna point this out because many of you get Mike Ryan frustrated, you get frustrated with Mike Ryan because you think he plays defense against the edgy content. It will now get to this story that I was trying to get to last segment, but I was interrupted by the magic creative content because ESPN at the time had a do not report on this because they had not independently verified something that's sensitive, which is the medical situation of Alex Smith, you always here after surgery except with Andrew lock. It was a successful surgery. It would appear that the Alex Smith one was not successful. Because from what's being reported in the Washington team has issued a statement requesting privacy for Alex Smith as he continues his recovery from a serious leg injury. They appreciate the concerns. The prayer now in Washington, they're reporting things didn't go well in. The surgery and ESPN is not independently verified that ESPN is not reporting any of that. And that is why it was a sensitive subject earlier not because I was about to talk about the violence for football. But the hall of fame defensive end Jason Taylor, just so you understand because that Washington franchise to God's famously Lawrence Taylor called for trainer with Joe breaking his leg. Now this year. They lead the league in quarterbacks with broken legs. They have two of them Colt McCoy played a couple of snaps. The other day through passes completed passes with a broken leg to passes after breaking his leg. And so now, I don't know what the complications are from this surgery. We have had other conversations around here before when one of these Sundays goes by comfortably and next thing. You know, somebody's in the hospital for a really long time not allowed to fly might fears. They might lose their leg you hear some of this stuff act military. I had heroin podcast with Adam Schefter. It's it's just sounds awful. But here's Jason Taylor. The hall of fame defensive end for the Miami. Dolphin telling you what it felt like one night to be at home on a Sunday with something that felt like. Just an annoyance that could be remedied by painkillers. It's eleven o'clock at night. And I'm trying to go to bed took a painkiller before. I went to bed took a sleeping pill that was prescribed for. I'm laying in bed, and it's just bad. It's just hurting. I'm sweating. I it just it's bad. So it's now two o'clock in the morning. I'm standing on the steps, and I'm realizing if I'm standing on the steps it doesn't hurt at all. Like, it's feels fine. Bryant a falling asleep standing on the steps because it would take the pain away. But then as soon as soon, as I would relaxed my leg to pay would be it would wake me up instantly. So it finally to forty five in the morning. How well tears and sweating and just crazy pain. I called the trainer to forty five. He answered the phone, and he he knew my phone. Call was coming. That it was to be something, and he goes out, and I said, do my leg. And he said, oh crap. He's like all right. We go to the hospital. I was like, dude, I'm fine. I'm just asking I take another Franken. And he's like, no, we gotta go. So we go to the hospital. They do a test. I guess you're what pressure test down. There supposed to be in the twenty five to thirty five range. I could be off medically, but that's range for the numbers. They do a test. And it comes back over one hundred. Never wanting to rooms face changes. And they said it had to be bad tickets test kit. Let's get another one. So they do it again. They rigged this thing up. Again, they do it again. It's one hundred twenty so anyway. Basically what we're going to do surgery. My hold on his three in the morning. I gotta call. My wife me call my age. Like, I said I wanna talk to Dr Andrews. So they could Andrews on the phone, and he said they gave him the results of the testing today. I did. And he said, yeah, you've got to get surgery. I said, okay, you're the best surgeon in the country you in a couple of hours for surgery, and he said, okay, that's fine. You can fly down here right now. You'll be here in two hours to get surgery. But if you do that when you get here off to cut your leg off, and I kind of like, yeah. Right. Whatever he goes. No Jason, I'm serious. Do you need to get off the phone lay down, and let them do the surgery right now or you're going to lose your leg? Right mean punches you right in the face? And that's from a dude who played a game with a catheter in his heart concealed running through his armpit concealed by tape. Play in a football game. With Catholic running to his heart because these people are insane. And I once called them soft that well, that's that's true too. That's right. To be the man you gotta beat demand. That is correct.

Actually wait for it to kind of start being built semi. Think one of the interesting features about the color palace which you alluded to that is that it's, they attribute that is interactive. You know how much should designers who, you know, sometimes we're on objects that are inanimate objects that stay still, how much should we be thinking about design as being something that can influence people's mood that it can also be about once consumed that what's eat and the music that's playing that. An interesting thing view is designer that works with materials to actually move into the architecture around to move into space.

And you could tell you fell off because in my opinion, it's very poorly designed, but one other way which can affect your mood and something that is just so important. I think teal working, tell me if I'm wrong is the idea of color architects and sometimes industrial designers, they think that something classy or something expensive shouldn't be colorful. You'll narrative goes very much against that as that, I think for me again through background and just seeing how my parents of war Kaleta church to went into the coronations and higher made feel really happy. I'm proud of the Kolja and it's really interesting how color which is for me, people might figures really simple. It's such a Powell thing that's coming where drove.

How Wade? Giancarlo wits lace. But it was so expensive. They lot where Nick shouted out. They were ninety million and they'd have colored proud.
