South Africa's land expropriation debates have caught the eye of United States president Donald Trump.

On Thursday‚ Trump tweeted that he was looking into South Africa's land seizures.

"I have asked Secretary of State @SecPompeo 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‚" Trump tweeted.
This comes just hours after President Cyril Ramaphosa answered tough questions in Parliament on the issue of land expropriation.

During a question-and-answer session‚ Ramaphosa rejected a proposal that the state should be the sole owner of all land in the country.
