JOHANNESBURG – Julix Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), responded to news about a tweet about the land reform of South Africa by US President Donald Trump.
Trump said he had asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to "carefully study the seizure of land and farms in South Africa" and the killing of farmers in South Africa.
I asked the State Secretary @SecPompeo to carefully study the seizures and expropriations of the country and the farms in South Africa and the large-scale murder of farmers. "The South African government now seizes land from white farmers." @TuckerCarlson @Fox news

Malema addressed the tweet during an EFF media briefing on Thursday afternoon.
"We will not let the government into Trump, this is a government of cowards, our suspicion is that the DA [Democratic Alliance] is involved in this thing. Our suspicion is that Cyril [Ramaphosa]the group is involved in this thing. They do not believe in the expropriation of land without compensation, including Cyril himself.
"So they want to use these types of threats to get out of this thing [land expropriation without compensation]. We can never be fooled here, we are not children. & # 39;
Malema adds that Minister of Mineral Resources Gwede Mantashe, the South African Communist Party and Jeremy Cronin, Minister of Popular Affairs Pravin Gordhan also do not believe in the expropriation of land without compensation. He says they have the same opinion as the DA and lobby group AfriForum.
#EFF Malema: Our suspicion is that Cyril's group, the DA, are involved in this thing. They do not believe in expropriating the land without compensation. They lobby for international support against this. In any case, Afriforum does it in the open Bd

#EFFMediaBriefing Malema: I believe that Donald Trump contributes to this discussion on the amendment to Article 25, but we are not shocked at the fact that he expressed the same views that whites exopressed during the public hearings.

"It is the ANC, DA who has done everything to lobby for international support, so that we can get cold feet."
