Trump lying about "#WhiteGenocide" in South Africa and saying he will put our Sect of State, @SecPompeo, on "investigating" something that isn't true is concerning.

There have been an estimated 1,544 murders on South African farms since 1994. 208 of the victims were black.
The population of South Africa is 56M.
5M are white--9% of the population.
The remainder are non-white.
Until apartheid ended in 1994, all property was owned by whites--having been expropriated from black and other non-white owners when apartheid was established.
It is unsurprising that Trump knows nothing of the apartheid struggles.
Or that they have been ongoing for decades.
But this tweet of his is incredibly concerning.
Hopefully @SecPompeo will see it that way.

It's vital that folks who have never heard about #WhiteGenocide understand it is a myth promoted by #WhiteNationalists who claim that non-white people are trying to "muddy" the races & blot out the DNA of folks who look like me: blonde/blue eyed.

Trump believing it is shocking.
We all know Trump is a racist--it's well-documented over decades since he was first investigated for racial bias by the DOJ in the early 70s.
But that's different from being on the far right extremist fringe of #WhiteNationalism.
This is Trump's most alarming tweet yet.
