South Africa says Trump's land comment "polarizes' the debate

JOHANNESBURG, - South Africa has told the US charge d'affaires to convey to Washington that it is disappointed about the US failure to use diplomatic channels after President Donald Trump commented on Twitter about the issue of land.
The Foreign Affairs department said it told the US envoy, Jessye Lapenn, at a meeting on Thursday, that it was working through parliament and other avenues to find a solution to the land issue and Trump's comment on the social media platform "serves only to polarize debate."
