Donald Trump has managed to sray his rudeness all over London despite the impeccably polite British welcome. Before he ever landed, POTUS sent out an ugly tweet about the new Duchess Meghan Merkle. He called her “dirty.” The U.S. president also managed to insult the mayor of London and the Shadow government’s Labour Secretary, Jeremy Corbyn. He did not stop there.
On his second day, the commander-in-chief tweeted about Mayor Sadiq Khan:
‘London Mayor @SadiqKhan says @realDonaldTrump is “a poster boy for the far-right movement around the world”, and that @theresa_may should tell him his values are ‘not reflected’ by the UK.

The American president said that Corbyn had asked for a meeting, but Trump refused the request like an angry teenage girl. The Labour leader’s people confirmed that Corbyn had, indeed, requested the meeting.
Trump has been supporting Brexit, which was the former separation of the U.K. from the European Union. It appeared that the Russians interfered with this vote and used it as a template for their attack on the U.S. presidential election.
London Mayor Saidq Khan called the man who occasionally sits in the Oval Office a “poster boy for the far-right.
Sky New political correspondent Kate McCann wrote about Trump’s visit:
‘Donald Trump press conferences can be unpredictable at the best of times, who could forget the hand-holding last time Theresa May and the president met in the UK? But he appeared to be on best behaviour when the two met in London today, praising Mrs May’s efforts to strike a deal with the European Union and warning she does not get the credit she deserves for her Brexit efforts.’
