Trump's visit to Britain a non-starter

By S.H.Moulana

We read about how the US president Donald Trump rushed to tweet congratulating May not really knowing the actual result of the general election in Britain.

Now he has realized that she has received lesser seats and in fact has lost her majority in the House of Commons. We presume that he is trying to distance himself from her.

It is learnt that the cancellation of his visit to Britain also on the card. Now Trump is gradually losing the US global leadership.

Even the veteran Republican Senator, John McCain has said that the US global leadership was better under Barack Obama than Donald Trump. Trump is making more world leaders opposed to him than support him with his dubious actions and utterances not only in the world in his own country too.

The newly elected young French president and German Chancellor won't see eye to eye with him.

The invitation May extended to Trump much before the general election to visit Britain was, in fact, not knowing the real pulse of her own people.

This is another example of May’s colossal misjudgment in going cap in hand to that ‘man child’.

British people would like May to be polite by all means but to keep Trump at arms’ length. Especially the Londoners were so annoyed the way Trump ridiculed their mayor during the terror attack at London Bridge.

It was much before the election Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn advocated for the cancellation of US president’s visit to Britain citing Trump’s disagreement over the Paris climate accord and his criticism of London Mayor, Sadiq Khan.

Any way the real reason for the cancellation of Trump’s visit is that he cannot stand the thought of crowds booing him and that would happen, no doubt.
