LONDON: After the Supreme Court upheld Donald Trump’s ban on people entering the United States from six mostly Muslim countries, this politics of division was attacked by the Liberal Democrats. Leader Vince Cable said: “This is not the signal the supposed leader of the free world should be sending out.
The Muslim ban is the worst symbol of Trump’s intolerance, and we must hope this doesn’t spread even more hate at a fragile time. “It also underlines why Liberal Democrats have told Trump that he simply is not welcome in the UK – the difference is this country won’t resort to banning him.”
Earlier, Vince Cable had demanded that Theresa May cancels the expected government to government summit with the “evil racist” Donald Trump. He said:“Many of us warned when Theresa May walked hand in hand with Donald Trump that any relationship with such a racist was bound to end badly. But the prime minister, desperate for a trade deal, ignored the advice from across the political spectrum”. Lib Dem leader added: “Britain is now paying the price for her bad misjudgement.Theresa May’s extreme Brexit has alienated our European allies and now she has lost her last remaining friend on the world stage, leaving Britain isolated and alone. The solution is clear: an exit from Brexit and a divorce from Trump.”
