Obama And Bush Meet In Africa
On Tuesday July 1st, 2013 President Barack Obama and Republican predecessor President George W. Bush joined forces to honor the victims of the 1998 terrorist attacks at the Tanzanian U.S. Embassy.
The U.S. presidents observed a moment of silence together at a monument to victims of the embassy bombing in the east African city where Bush coincidentally happened to be as Obama wrapped up a week long tour of the continent.
“We are looking at a new model that’s based not just on aid and assistance, but on trade and partnership. Ultimately, the goal here is for Africa to build Africa for Africans. And our job is to be a partner in that process. I’m inspired because I’m absolutely convinced that with the right approach, Africa and its people can unleash a new era of prosperity,” said President Obama.
