Samuel Phillip Gyimah, a Conservative politician who works as the Member of Parliament for East Surrey, tore into President Trump on Friday after the president made several biting remarks about British Prime Minister Theresa May.
“Where are your manners, Mr President?” Gyimah asked on Twitter the day after an interview with the British tabloid The Sun was released where Trump blasted May for her “soft” Brexit plan, among other criticisms.
“If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the U.K., so it will probably kill the deal,” Trump informed the local paper.
Trump also explained that he “would have done it much differently” in reference to the Brexit plan.
“I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn’t agree, she didn’t listen to me,” Trump said.
“She should negotiate the best way she knows how. But it is too bad what is going on,” he added.
However, on Friday, Trump gave a press conference with May in which he said he on Brexit, “whatever you’re going to do is OK with us.”
The president later told The Sun that he has never “said anything bad about” May in the interview after The Washington Post revealed that he thinks that the UK leader is as annoying as a “bossy schoolteacher.”
“That is fake news. I think she is a nice person. I get along with her very nicely. The Washington Post is totally fake. They are just a lobbyist for Amazon,” he informed The Sun.
Where are your manners, Mr President?

He never had manners.

He doesn't have any. No decorum, no respect for anyone other than dictators, no self-respect.

It comes as a surprise to you that Trump has no manners or respect for anyone or anything except himself and his agenda of self aggrandisement and profit? (OK, perhaps Putin).
