Ramaphosa arrived at the summit on Sunday and aims to market South Africa as an investment destination and trade partner during the summit, Fin24 reported.
How difficult is it to research and identify a leader attending a G-7 meeting? Easy, perhaps. Maybe not. Here are some of the twitter reactions:
‘Unidentified leader’ seems to be the new title for President Ramaphosa of South Africa.
-Americans really do live in their own world.
-surely as a journalist it’s your job to identify him? https://t.co/MsBvlNJSzm

That “unidendified leader” Darlene is identifiable to the other leaders. Such ignorance you displayed because you only know white leaders

That “unidentified Leader” is our greatest and smart President @CyrilRamaphosa and trust us when we say, the best leader among those three. Just learn a thing or two about Africa and stop being @realDonaldTrump sucker.
