Donald Trump talks about the new hotel and condominium complex development being built a press conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, Wednesday June 19, 2013.
NEW YORK - American business magnate and television personality, Donald Trump, has called South Africa a very dangerous mess.
He expressed his opinion, which he said he has held for a while, via a tweet to his followers on Monday night.
As I have long been saying, South Africa is a total - and very dangerous - mess. Just watch the evening news (when not talking weather).— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 20, 2015
The South African Twittersphere did not take too kindly to Trump&39;s opinions and he&39;s since received enough flack for his name to trend.
It is not the first time Trump has criticised South Africa.
In 2013, he posted a tweet saying South Africa was a crime-ridden mess "just waiting to explode".
That tweet received similar criticism from South Africans.
