Trump Sends US Officials To Investigate Land Expropriation in South Africa

South African BusinessTech writes:

A number of US officials visited South Africa at the request of President Donald Trump as part of an investigation into the country’s land expropriation process.

Trump raised eyebrows in 2018 after he tweeted that the South African government was ‘seizing land from white farmers’.

Trump asked his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, to study the seizure and expropriation of land in South Africa, along with the killing of farmers.

According to the Rapport, the US delegation – including deputy secretary of state John J. Sullivan, and the US deputy ambassador to South Africa Jessye Lapenn – met with AgriSA, Grain SA, and ANC officials on Friday (15 March) to discuss how the land expropriation process may impact property rights in the country.

In the meeting, AgriSA highlighted the recently released list of land expropriation targets in the Northern Cape and warned that the ANC would bring about an “economic catastrophe” if it planned to expropriate farms that were an essential part of the South African economy.

The group also discussed the high rate of farm murders in the country, with AgriSA asking the US government to intervene to help prevent land grabs in the country.

In a press briefing following the meeting, Sullivan said that the South African government needed to do more to ensure the land expropriation process was transparent.

“Land reform has received significant attention – but there is a lot of misinformation in the US. I don’t think it has translated well across the ocean and been covered with the depth and perspective that is necessary,” he said.

“My message on behalf of the US is in addressing this complex issue, that it be done in a transparent way so that both the agriculture sector and the economy generally aren’t significantly adversely affected by a nontransparent process which reduces investor confidence and reduces South Africans’ confidence,” Sullivan said.

    Rest assured that Hillary, or any future Democrap, would not give a damn about the White South Africans, the very people that founded, and built that Country, and whose farms, along with the former Rhodesia’s, fed the rest of that ungrateful Continent. The Democraps are now trying to do here, in the U.S., what they have installed elsewhere. They must think that everyone is stupid. The difference between the U.S. and South Africa is that White people still make up the majority of the population, and many are not only awake, but also quite angry. But they will keep pushing and pushing until good people push back, and put them back in their place.

    Jacob Zuma is too stupid to realize that the very people he is ordering dispossessed of their farms, and murdered by his Communist thugs, are the very people that feed them. Does he think that China, Korea, India, Pakistan, and the Arab countries will feed them? Good luck. Most of these countries can’t feed themselves.

    So, to answer that bitch, Alyssa Milano, who libeled the Covington Catholic School students, after their “March for Life” participation, with Chief Talking Bull spinning lies about them, I would tell that no talent, Third Rate Actress, and Shill for the U.N., that I will keep my .50 cents per day, and give it, instead, to a Homeless American Veteran who deserves the help, and is actually thankful for it. Let the other “Greater Races” of the world feed, and wipe the noses, and assess of the thankless Africans. As for me, Charity begins at home, taking care of our own.

    Let me recommend two videos, on You Tube, by Commentator, Paul Harvey, which are entitled, “We Were Warned”, and “Our Lives, Our Fortunes, and Our Sacred Honor”. Make sure your children, and grandchildren watch them, as well.
