“Trump is an embarrassment to America,” Farron said. “In the wake of the recent terrorist attack, two of which killed people on the streets of London, Donald Trump decides to use his time in the Oval Office to attack the Mayor of London on Twitter.”
“Theresa May absolutely must withdraw the state visit,” he added. “This is a man insulting our national values at a time of introspection and mourning.”
“We need a special relationship not a supine relationship,” the statement concluded.
I couldn’t agree more. The Tiny Tyrant wants to bully and showboat, and I do not think anyone in London is remotely interested in the Narrenkaiser show, or talk of how guns, guns, guns, would solve all their problems. Trump’s repeated smears of Sadiq Khan should not be countenanced in any way. I don’t want him here either, but that should not be an excuse to foist him off on anyone else.
