Please, Cyril is small to Donald. This comment is just to make SA looking good, which is not the case. We don't feature in international politics. There is always something going in US politics. They don't think much of the African continent. I am just waiting for the announcement that we can choose Chinese surnames one of these days.

Nothing stopping you from doing it right now - just go to your nearest home affairs to change your name/surname.

Like @空中狼 said, you can do so right now. You don't have to wait for permission from Cyril.

Americans are bullies. Just because China promises to buy "a whole lot of agricultural products" there is no longer a security and espionage threat
This is exactly how they shoved their chickens down our throats

+1. I wanted to say the same. It's all about money. National security has fokkol to do with it, that's just a pretense for "negotiation". And all their presidents are the same, not just Trump. The chicken saga happened during the time of Obama. It's just that Trump is a loud mouth.

Realistically what choice does he have? Chinese will reward Ramaphosa with no string attached cash while Trump will give him nothing at best.

Trump said Chinese President Xi Jinping had promised to buy “tremendous” amounts of U.S. agricultural products in exchange.
Craploads of manure?
