Well, according to him, we have voted to "break up the EU"

Erm, no, the vote was just for leaving. Just goes to show how much of a grasp he has.

I despair, that such an ill informed person is in such a position

I feel sorry for the Queen, having to be polite to such a predatory, sexually assaulting, obnoxious oik.

So he’s said T M she has done Bexit all wrong and he did tell her how to do it but she didn’t listen to him and he ‘warned’ her the trade deal could be off How very dare he

I DETEST this man and when I see that smug cartoon face all I want to do is punch it He is the most awful egotistical, narsisistic, ignoramous in all the world
I thought T M looked ridiculous in that dress with the spilt up to her knickers she’s hardly a sex symbol

What the on earth gives that man the right to say how our country should be won, and to say that Saddiq Khan is a terrible mayor for London, just goes to show how racist he is!!!! Grrr the sooner he goes home the better, we don't need the likes of him and his ego stirring the pot, I woke up in quite a good mood this morning until I saw him on the tv this morning.

I’m puzzled as to why saying that SK is a terrible mayor automatically makes someone a racist Maggie ?

I have no opinion either way about SK can’t remeber the last time I even visited London, let alone comment on his ability as a mayor (other than perhaps his very bad decision to allow the blimp).

SK and DT have crossed swords ever since DT’s first attempt at a Moslem ban on travelling to the USA. With DT’s first attempt at this, SK would not have been allowed to enter the USA. SK understandably had some very sharp words to say about this and obviously relationships have never been repaired. But whether DT is a racist or not ( and he is every other sort of ‘ist’ so probably is) it is absolutely unforgivable for him to talk about SK like this - just imagine TM giving an interview to Fox News and criticising the mayor of NY. Whatever people think about SK he does receive a huge amount of racist abuse on social media ( as do all black politicians) we should all be horrified at this attack on him - I wonder how much support he will be given by the MSM?

Thank you for that MaryEliza I was just confused as to why not rating someone as a mayor makes then a racist.

I did read something recently written by I think Piers Morgan (??) in which the former mayor of New York Rudy Guilliani (sp?) criticised SK for his inability to deal with the crime on London’s streets and said something on the lines of “ SK should be ashamed of himself. He’s too busy attacking a world leader instead of dealing with the crime on London’s streets”. (Not quoted word for word) .

Trump blamed Sadie Khan for the terror attacks in London! He’s just so damned thick and stupid, with the verbal capacity of a 7-year old.

Of course he’s a racist, no question, and as such is obviously going to detest a Muslim in a position of powerf.

I just feel sorry for the 50% of Americans who didn’t vote for this clown and are totally embarrassed by him. I bet Poot’n is laughing up his sleeve at him too. Watch out for the ‘manly’ handshakes ... ???

Well said OldMeg -your post is straight to the point and accurate so far as I'm concerned.

Given all Theresa May's current difficulties, and she is his host, it was outrageously rude of Trump to say Bozzer would make a great prime minister.

He's humiliated her.

Let's see what gems he comes with today grin

Iam64 Fri 13-Jul-18 07:50:44

I've just read the DM on line, where there are quotes from an interview that the Donald gave to the Sun. (Well he would, wouldn't he)
He is indeed outrageously rude, to anyone, about anyone. We shouldn't be surprised because he said he'd behave as President as he did in business. That means continuing to bully, to lie, to distort information, to use 'deals' rather than diplomacy. He's a truly hideous individual who needs the limelight and will do or say anything to get it.

Bathsheba Fri 13-Jul-18 08:18:06

In criticising Sadiq Khan and the "terrible job" he's done, the Trump said "If you take a look at your hospital in London, you'll know what I'm talking about". Does he actually think we have only one hospital in London? "Idiot" doesn't even begin to cover it.

gillybob Fri 13-Jul-18 08:22:26

He’s not wrong about the knife crime mind you . Mayor Guilliani (sp?) reduced crime in NY by 65% . Crime seems to be on the up in London . Seems not a day goes by when we read about another stabbing. SK needs to get a grip on this .

pollyperkins Fri 13-Jul-18 08:25:57

The arrogance of the man is amazing! And he speaks like a complete ignoramus: re Brexit 'I told her how to do it but she ignored me' !!! He is like a dim witted big headed child. I do feel sorry for TM thpugh I'm not a fan of hers. She thought she'd sorted it at Chequers and now its all crashing round her ears a d she has to stand and be polite to this buffoon.

pollyperkins Fri 13-Jul-18 08:26:34

And heaven help us if we do get Boris as PM!

Jane10 Fri 13-Jul-18 08:36:09

I'd like to think that Theresa and Angela have a private WhatsApp group where they could commiserate with each other over the stuff Trump is saying about each of their countries and how they are run.
Can't understand what makes him think lots of people like him in Scotland - he's absolutely detested here!

Iam64 Fri 13-Jul-18 08:53:52

Gillybob - It's central, not local government that funds the Police. The past year has seen consistent concerns expressed by chief constables and by the head of the Met about the increase in crime. They state categorically that the increase in crime is directly linked to government cuts to police numbers. Cressida Dick, head of the Met, made some comment recently in which she said it wasn't possible not to connect the rise in violent crime on the streets of London with the reduction of Police caused by government policies.

Mayor Juliani was able to fund a huge increase in police numbers in NYC. Alongside that, they dealt with any crime, from litter dropping to serious crime. This zero tolerance approach worked in NYC but was dependent on a huge growth in Police numbers and visibility.

That's what Theresa May ought to be doing. Increasing funding to the Police (and imo, to all supportive public agencies working alongside the police, health, drug/alcohol treatment, work with young people etc etc)

On Trump..... well, everybody else has already said it, so nothing much to add grin
On dress....I thought Melania’s dress when arriving ( from the plane) one of those very tight belted neutral coloured ones, was awful, but they do seem popular as so many women on tv wear them.The yellow dress she wore to the evening at Blenheim I thought was lovely.T May has an enviable figure for her age, and I liked her elegant red dress, but like other posters say, thought the split at the back went a bit too far up!

lemongrove Fri 13-Jul-18 10:45:16

We could never have relied upon trade with the US with Trump as the President, he is proving much too random and does and says everything on a whim.

Jane10 Fri 13-Jul-18 11:30:29

I agree. Trump by name and trump by nature. He blows with the foul smelling wind!

gillybob Fri 13-Jul-18 11:36:25

I didn’t see the dress Melania wore upon her arrival so can’t comment on that but she normally dresses impeccably . Why drag her dress into this argument ?

gillybob Fri 13-Jul-18 11:39:25

Police being backed up by the courts would be a great start . Instead of this softly softly “ he had a poor upbringing” approach we Brits seem to have . Plenty kids have poor upbringings, blimey my town is full of them, but they don’t go stabbing each other at random . They need to crack down on street gangs too which seems to be where most of it stems from.

Jane10 Fri 13-Jul-18 11:44:44

Gosh a Trump fan!

Juggernaut Fri 13-Jul-18 11:46:32

I have to disagree, Melania is a good looking woman, but as for the best since Jackie Kennedy, Michelle Obama without a doubt! Michelle is a stunningly beautiful woman!

I'm not watching the news, or looking at the papers until the sexist, racist, arrogant, pug faced, combed over, obnoxious fart has left this country, my blood pressure won't stand it!

HootyMcOwlface Fri 13-Jul-18 11:52:27

If he likes Boris so much, he can take him with him when he leaves. Please!

notgrandma Fri 13-Jul-18 11:52:41

I thought Teresa looked just right ,well done! She must put up with the idiot in a dignified way .

nigglynellie Fri 13-Jul-18 15:35:49

Yes that is true, Michelle Obama is a stunningly beautiful woman. A three ladies were/are very lovely! Mind you Nancy Reagan was a beauty in her day, but came to be the Presidents wife later on in life when her looks had 'matured'!!
