JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa’s government in an official tweet on Thursday rejected United States President Donald Trump’s tweet on land reform as a “narrow perception” that divides the nation.

“South Africa totally rejects this narrow perception which only seeks to divide our nation and reminds us of our colonial past,” government said in a post on Twitter.
