The moment Ramaphosa warned Donald trump

Johannesburg- Two years ago, US President Donald Trump and other World leaders applauded South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on how he reacted toward fighting the #Coronavirus .


However,Donald Trump is well known to be controversial and unprintable.This time he tweeted something that contradicts his applause to Ramaphosa on another crisis besides #COVID 19.

In a speech at the weekend, SA'sPresident Cyril #Ramaphosa was aggressive in his response to a tweet from US President #Donald Trump on land expropriation in South Africa. At one point, he even echoed a famous statement by former Zimbabwean leader Robert Mugabe, who once told then British prime minister Tony Blair: “Blair, keep your England and let me keep my Zimbabwe.” Ramaphosa responded to Trump that South Africa does not belong to him and “he can keep his America; when I meet him I will tell him”.

Ramaphosa stated that Trump should stay out of the Country's land expropriation issues as it is local crisis and needs local solutions. He said "South Africa does not belong to him "Donald Trump" and when I meet him, I will tell him".

What's your opinion about Donald Trump's involvement in SA's affairs?
