There's no doubt that US President Donald Trump has ruffled Mzansi's feathers with his comment about land seizures in South Africa.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday, Trump wrote: "I have asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo 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‚" he tweeted.
Twitter streets were flames after that as celebs and the public took turns throwing punches at Trump.
See local celebrity reactions below.
Dear @realDonaldTrump land redistribution is inevitable. It’s clear as day light and it’s black and white with no gray confusing areas. In fact decent white South Africans are concerned about this imbalance they want it to end. #FixingTheCountry pic.twitter.com/Hn24az8S3t— Criselda Dudumashe (@positivegp) August 23, 2018
Listen @realDonaldTrump, or as we call you in Africa, Comrade Gatorade, white South Africans are doing fine, better than fine in fact. Rather focus on getting Putin's hand out your ass, and insulting Canada for no reason. Thanks, your fellow puppet, Chester Missing— Chester Missing (@chestermissing) August 23, 2018

Afriforum shouldn’t get away with smearing the brand of a whole country like this. Especially when we know they thumb sucked these stats deliberately. Surely that amounts to treason— Firebrand (@simphiwedana) August 23, 2018
