England undoubtedly despises Trump – perhaps even more than Trump’s home country. The scaredy-cat president got cold feet when it came time to visit England this year due to the English vowing to meet him with mass protests’
There have been several instances throughout the year where Trump’s insulted Britain. For starters, he attacked the Mayor of London on Twitter while the city was scrambling to contain a terrorist attack. More recently, he posted anti-Muslim videos posted by a British ultranationalist group and later faced condemnation from top English officials, including Prime Minister Theresa May.
Trump responded to May’s criticism of his poorly chosen videos in a tweet that read:
“Theresa May, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom.”
England responded by downgrading any visit by Trump to a “working visit” instead of the customary state visit that comes with all the bells and whistles. If Trump does indeed embark on his “working visit,” he will not have access to the Queen.
English Labour MP Barry Sheerman is concerned a visit by Trump could cause “unparalleled demonstrations in this country.”
Theresa May also reprobated Trump’s recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel officially.
The Secret Service better prepare for a rodeo if Trump decides to step foot in the UK.
