outh Africa’s Minister of Transport turned Socialite, Fikile Mbalula does not agree with businessman Patrice Motsepe when he says “Africa loves America, Africa loves you,”.
“Patrice Motsepe tells Donald Trump ‘Africa loves America, Africa loves you’ – but not everyone agrees. I also don’t agree that africa loves donald trump,” wrote Fikile Mbalula – writing Donald Trump in small letters to show no sign of respect at all.
“Don’t know (the) context but there’s no such thing as Africa loving Trump. Whether it was PR/impressing investors it has no factual basis. Even Americans hardly express love for Trump excerpt extreme rightwing elements. Trump sorry it was expressed in error we withdraw the statement,” wrote Dr. Somadoda Fikeni who is a Political Analyst.
According to News24, billionaire businessman Patrice Motsepe reckons that Africa loves US President Donald Trump. However, it appears Twitter users disagree.
The mining mogul was caught on camera addressing Trump at the World Economic Forum in Davos this week.
“Africa loves America. Africa loves you. It’s very, very important. We want America to do well. We want you to do well. The success of America is the success of the rest of the world,” Motsepe told Trump, as quoted by the publication.
They also report that Trump thanked Motsepe and said that he did a great job.
But many South Africans didn’t seem impressed. Some took to social media to share their views.
