Calls for Trump Visit to UK to be Cancelled as Nigel Farage Britain should follow Donald Trump’s lead and introduce ‘extreme vetting.’
Well done, my good and faithful servant!
As UKIP is doing well in some Stoke-on-Trent by-election opinion polls this should be borne in mind:
The Mirror reports.
The ex-Ukip leader was unable to name a single US terror attack committed by a refugee
Nigel Farage has welcomed Donald Trump’s Muslim ban, despite being unable to name a US terror attack committed by a refugee.
It came just months after Farage himself said Trump’s plan to ban Muslims from travelling to America made him feel “uncomfortable.”
He told the BBC’s Sunday Politics: “He’s entitled to do this. He was voted in on this ticket.”
Asked specifically if he agreed with the ban, he said: “Well I do. Because I think that if you just look at what is happening in France and Germany after Mrs Merkel’s policy on this which was to let everybody in from virtually anywhere, look what it’s led to.
Calls are being made to cancel a proposed state visit to the UK by President Trump after he issued an executive order clamping down on immigration to the US.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said it would be “totally wrong” for the visit to go ahead later this year.
A petition to stop it has reached over 200,000 meaning it will be considered for debate in Parliament.
The visit was announced during PM May’s trip to the US – no date has been set.
Downing Street were asked for a response to the calls to cancel. A spokesman said: “We extended the invite and it was accepted.”
Alex Salmond, the SNP’s foreign affairs spokesman, said he thought the state visit was “a very bad idea”.
Also appearing on Sky News’ Sophy Ridge, he said: “You shouldn’t be rushing into a headlong relationship with the President of the United States.”
Mr Salmond said reports Mr Trump was reluctant to meet Prince Charles during the visit were “an indication of the sort of enormous difficulties you get into when you hold somebody tight who is unpredictable, who has a range of views you find unacceptable.”
And Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said the visit should not happen while the executive order was in place.
He told Sky News: “I am quite clear, this ban is cruel, this ban is shameful, while this ban is in place we should not be rolling out the red carpet for President Trump.”
For the moment Trump is looking forward to having tea and crumpets with the Queen, and a good laugh over this Tweet of his:
