    Right, wrong or indifferent, Trump's tweet put RSA politicians and laws under the microscope. Just goes to show the power of presidential statements.

    I'll add it's great comedic relief to watch the news media, politicians, hangers-on, pundits, opponents, haters and every asshole with an opinion, scramble every time Trump says or tweets something.

    Exactly! If it wasn’t tweeted on Twitter you can’t believe a word of it! :E Rofl:

    Opinion, media, and commentary aside, I heard RSA Pres’s speech for myself on the news, and if I were a White Farmer in RSA, I wouldn’t be too optimistic right now

    When the trade war heated up here, the LA Times started calling farmers to see if they have switched their support away from Trump. It must have been frustrating for them - they could not find a single one. I spoke to them and laughed - what, are we going to support a Clinton or Bernie Sanders now? Then they tried to switch over to our state elections and I again chuckled that this state won't even support Feinstein because she isn't liberal or progressive enough, so who are the dems going to put up that the conservatives can support?

    If you look long and hard enough, you can probably find somebody that agrees with your narrative and if those are the only people you quote, you can try and make it look like there is consensus. I have spoken to many farmers and ranchers in South Africa. I have yet to meet one that isn't a Trump supporter. Maybe they are out there, but in my experience, they would be in the minority.
