Donald Trump tries to distract from his high crimes and misdemeanors by threatening South Africa using white supremacist lies that the government is taking land away from white farmers. This is the furthest Trump has gone down the white supremacist rabbit hole.

Trump tweeted: “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.”

This is the first time Trump tweeted about Africa and he’s attacking one of the “shithole countries” by going full white supremacist.

The South African government clapped back immediately from its official government Twitter account by accusing Trump of “sowing division.” “South Africa totally rejects this narrow perception which only seeks to divide our nation and reminds us of our colonial past,” the government wrote on Twitter.

“South Africa will speed up the pace of land reform in a careful and inclusive manner that does not divide our nation,” wrote the government in a second post.

The Anti-Defamation League also blasted Trump in a statement: “It is extremely disturbing that the President of the United States echoed a longstanding and false white supremacist claim that South Africa’s white farmers are targets of large-scale, racially-motivated killings by South Africa’s black majority.” “White supremacists in the United States have made such claims for years.”

I’m pretty sure Trump didn’t care so much about South Africa when blacks were being murdered and terrorized during apartheid. He’s signaling to his white supremacist base that he has their backs no matter what. He is a morally debased man that will do anything to protect himself. He has no clue what the policy is in South Africa but is content to carry out American diplomacy by getting his talking points from Fox News. What a dark period for our country.
