Trump has thrown his toys out of the pram and cancelled his trip to the UK will be welcomed by all of us who reject his abhorrent views – Jo Swinson

by Steve Beasant on 12 January, 2018

Commenting on reports that Donald Trump has cancelled his plans to visit the UK, Liberal Democrat Foreign Affairs spokesperson Jo Swinson said: 

“News that Trump has thrown his toys out of the pram and cancelled his trip to the UK will be welcomed by all of us who reject his abhorrent views.

“But it’s a disappointing sign of how weak May’s leadership is that she wasn’t brave enough to call the visit off herself. The Prime Minister should be ashamed that she was so keen to roll out the red carpet to a man who spreads hate and division at every turn, and goes out of his way to undermine British values.”
