- The United States 2020 Elections are dominating headlines across the globe
- Now, Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema has weighed in with his views
- During a 'visit' to Pharmacy Direct on Wednesday, Malema dubbed Trump a 'crybaby'
EFF leader Julius Malema has given his opinion on the US elections which have been plagued with drama in recent days.
During a 'special visit' to Pharmacy Direct on Wednesday, Malema said global democracy is in question if first world nations are concerned about alleged electoral fraud and vote-rigging:
“If they are robbing each other it is good. They are tasting what we have been tasting here in Africa. They must know what the rigging is about, but Trump is a crybaby, he must accept defeat. If he is defeated he must accept. The same with [Joe] Biden."
Malema insists that the nation should have the most elite electoral system, not complaints:
“They are a first-world (country). They cannot be speaking about the rigging of elections because they are supposed to have the most sophisticated electoral system ... and if we third world (countries) are still complaining about rigging and the first world is also complaining, then democracy is in danger.”
Trump is currently in a race against Joe Biden for the top spot in the country, however, the current US President claims that foul-play is afoot:
“We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election. This is a major fraud on our nation. We want the law to be used in a proper manner. So we'll be going to the US Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop.”
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that the Economic Freedom Fighters flocked to Pharmacy Direct on Wednesday after a video clip of a confrontation between CEO Gawie Erasmus and employees went viral.
During the clip, Erasmus can be heard addressing the employees over the Temporary Employer Relief Scheme funding that was paid by the UIF to the company but had not been handed over to the workers.
When the employees had protested the matter, Erasmus gave them an ultimatum either accept the situation and return to work or leave.
The EFF took a dim view of this behaviour, issuing a statement to confirm that it would be heading to the company and commenting that:
"The EFF will directly confront Gavie Erasmus, we can no longer allow white minorities to arrogantly oppress black workers using the entrenched structural inequalities to undermine the genuine struggle of workers."
