U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley arrived in Ethiopia Monday, among the first visits to Africa by a senior member of President Donald Trump's administration that diplomats hope will shed light on his plans to engage with the continent.While Africa is traditionally overshadowed by more urgent issues, the Trump administration has so far been hands-off.Some African diplomats hope Haley's trip will spark a conversation in Washington on the administration's broader engagement with Africa.Haley's visit to Africa comes after four U.S. soldiers were killed during an Oct. 4 ambush in Niger.However, in June the United States said it did not want the United Nations to fund a proposed African force to fight Islamist militants in West Africa, U.N. diplomats said.As with most of the key regional bureaus at the U.S. State Department, there is currently no permanent chief diplomat for Africa.
