Y’all know that our political environment is a hot mess right now. With Cohen, Manafort, and the Russian probe how much more can we take! Well some of you may not of heard this story – On August 22, 2018 Y’all’s president sent the following tweet:
I have asked Secretary of State @SecPompeo to closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large scale killing of farmers. “South African Government is now seizing land from white farmers.” @TuckerCarlson @FoxNews”
What he’s referring to is South Africa’s policy of land redistribution. In a recent Wall Street Journal article, the African National Congress (ANC) is planning to change the constitution. It wants to allow the redistribution of land without compensation to overcome the inequalities in land ownership during Apartheid. Under the Apartheid system the white-minority rule, which only made up 8% of the country’s population, own the majority of the land. Still today they own 73% of agricultural land.
South African President Cyril Ramphosa and other ANC members, quickly denounced the rhetoric of Trump and that awfully racist tweet! It appears that South Africa is putting in a real effort to right the racist wrongs of the past. It seems to me that America can take a page out of their play book! Trump mind your business, you about to be indicted!
