US President Donald Trump has asked his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo to "closely study the South African land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large scale killing of farmers".

In a tweet, Trump included the sentence "South African Government is now seizing land from white farmers".

Trump appeared to be reacting to a Fox News report on land seizures in SA. Trump's tweet comes after US think-tank the Cato Institute published an editorial calling on his administration to act against SA, possibly by removing it from the Agoa trade deal, which allows favourable South African exports to the US.
