Republican primary front-runner Donald Trump recently did an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan discussing the terrorist attack in Brussels and how people view him as a candidate. The interview didn’t reveal anything new to Americans, but for many Brits, it did offer some keen insight, which quite a few were happy to share on Twitter. Here’s the video of that interview.

During the interview, Morgan asked Trump to give his thoughts on the recent terror attacks in Brussels. Trump replied:

‘I knew Brussels years ago and I was there three or four times, it was so beautiful and secure and safe and now it’s an armed camp. It’s a different world and place, there’s no assimilation. What’s going on there and in other countries is a disgrace.’

The 69-year-old billionaire was insistent that his controversial statement calling for the U.S. to “temporarily” ban all Muslims from entering the country wasn’t racist at all.

‘I’m not racist,’ he said. ‘I’m speaking my mind and it’s just common sense.’

Trump also insisted that he had “many friends that are Muslim,” but it’s the job of every Muslim around the world to find out what going in their neighborhoods and Mosques, and report terrorists.

Here are just a few hilarious tweets from Britons via the Daily Mail.

Believe it or not, Brits disagree with how Trump views the world. There were a few supportive reactions from xenophobes who felt Trump was the bigoted savior they’d been praying for, though. This negative attitude toward Muslims in Britain has been around for a very long time. One of Great Britain’s most celebrated prime ministers, Winston Churchill, was an infamous racist and xenophobe. Churchill is on record saying:

‘How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.

The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property—either as a child, a wife, or a concubine—must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die. But the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it.

No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science—the science against which it had vainly struggled—the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.’

Therefore, it’s no surprise to find a handful of Britons who support Donald Trump. Here are a few tweets from British Trump fans.

And many Brits felt that Morgan’s decade-long friendship with Trump made it too much of a softball interview.

Morgan also tweeted his reaction to the reactions from his audience.
