“There is actually black genocide in the US. They are killing black people in the US. Black people are even being killed in South Africa,” he said at a media briefing on Thursday at EFF headquarters in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.
At the briefing Malema issued a stern warning to Trump not to get involved in South African affairs.
Malema said a war is coming between those who support expropriation without compensation and those who oppose land theft.
“Death is the price we will pay and poverty will come. It’s a war and we must be prepared. Death is the price we are willing to pay, we are not shaken,” the black Marxist leader said.
Malema also told the media that whites were being trained to kill black people. “They will kill us for that. There’s a group of white right-wingers who are being trained by Jews in Pretoria to be snipers,” he said, but his claims remained evidence-free.
The EFF leader denounced Trump’s “public opinion games” regarding land. “We must put it on record, unequivocally … Donald – the pathological liar – Trump, we are not scared of you and your USA or Western imperialist forces.
“We are warning you, do not play public opinion games with the land question. It is an emotive issue in which people’s dignity is at stake, our people’s hopes cannot be subjected to a contest on public opinion,” he said.
“We want to send a strong message to the USA authorities, just like we did to the Australian authorities, stay out of South Africa’s domestic affairs,” he continued.
Early on Thursday morning, US president Donald Trump tweeted that he plans to “closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large-scale killing of farmers”.
