Our President is a tireless leader who is helping shape the entire world. He has more energy than any teenager.
Last week, President Donald Trump watched Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News and decided to react to the current situation in South Africa. The president tweeted a message of support for South Africa’s hard-pressed white farmers.
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.”
Six days later things have changed a bit!
From The Daily Caller:
South Africa temporarily withdrew an expropriations bill enabling the country to make compulsory land purchases from white farmers to redress racial disparities rampant during the apartheid.
The bill was withdrawn to pave way for a potential constitutional amendment allowing the government to expropriate land without compensation. The Marxist Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party crafted the bill, which was never signed, as part of a so-called “land reform” program to even the disparity in property ownership between the black majority and white minority.
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa — and his party, African National Congress (ANC) — reassured lawmakers in March that any redistribution program would be done in a way that does not disrupt normal farming operations. ANC widely supports an amendment authorizing expropriation.
Some lawmakers in the Democratic Alliance (DA) party, along with agricultural economists, worry the program could suffer the same fate as one Zimbabwe created in the early 2000s, which effectively seized land from white farmers. Zimbabwe, under the direction of former dictator Robert Mugabe, seized and redistributed land from about 4,000 white farmers to landless black people to compensate them for years of colonial rule.
ANC’s land reform plan is at odds with the policy preference of former president and human rights icon Nelson Mandela, who allowed the white minority to keep their property and assured them they would receive fair compensation if and when the government purchased their land.
It seems that this bill will not pass through because banks are continuing to provide loans to commercial farmers, despite the uncertainty about land reform and possible amendments to Section 25 of the constitution, according to Cas Coovadia, managing director of the Banking Association of South Africa (Basa).
Unlike President Trump Barack Obama during his last trip to South Africa, he praised the South African president despite the recent decision to steal land from white farmers without compensation.
Tucker Carlson pointed out these stunning comments on his show.
Via Tucker Carlson Tonight:
Tucker Carlson: Obama began his remarks by thanking South African President Cyril Ramaphosa for, quote, “Inspiring great hope in this country.” Now if you’ve been following what’s going on in South Africa you might be shocked by that because it turns out Ramaphosa recently declared that he would change the South African constitution and he will do it for the explicit purpose of persecuting a racial minority, seizing their land without compensation not because they committed a specific crime but because they are the wrong color… Thanks to policies like this many South Africans have already been murdered in race killings and many more are fleeing the country for their lives. It’s not covered here but it’s covered in the rest of the world and it’s real.
In any case, Trump reaction was certainly a reminder of the South African government that this kind of a behavior is not welcomed by the USA!
Share if you think that President Trump did a great job!
