‘Which Africa?’ Twitter users react to Motsepe telling Trump Africa loves him
There have been mixed reactions to the video with some laughing at it while others pointed to the fact that Donald Trump called Africa a “sh*thole” two years ago.
JOHANNESBURG – In case you haven’t heard or seen, Africa loves United States (US) President Donald Trump.
It’s true, well according to businessman Patrice Motsepe.
Motsepe sparked a debate on social media after telling Trump that Africa loves him on Thursday at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
In a video on Twitter, Motsepe can be seen and heard saying: “We do business in 50 countries and I had the honour of being one of the 100 greatest business minds by Forbes and it was an honour to be with you. All we wanted to say is Africa loves America. Africa loves you [Donald Trump].”

People worried about what Motsepe said but they themselves worship Americans everyday. Their culture, celebrities, entertainment etc. Start with yourself first before bashing him. You love America and Americans.— Kemiso Motholo (@KemisoMo) January 24, 2020

Patrice Motsepe is 100% correct. In a globalized world, the success of America becomes the success of Africa and so on and so forth. Long Live Patrice— Olwethu Sipuka (@osipuka) January 24, 2020
Patrice Motsepe spends more time with Afrikaners than natives! We only see him at Sundowns matches, DAANC, ZCC gatherings! Under whose mandate is he speaking.. Africa will never love Trump a man who called our beloved village “SHITHOLE” is Patrice mad!— African (@ali_naka) January 24, 2020
