Following the news that Donald Trump will be coming to Britain for a state visit in June, Labour MEP Alex Mayer is calling for it to be called off. She said:
“Mr Trump has attacked British and American values. I am outraged that we are rewarding racist, xenophobic and misogynistic behaviour with the red-carpet treatment, dining with the queen and fly pasts.
“He is the leader of the United States so we have to do business with him but it doesn’t mean he should get the pomp and ceremony. Have a phone conference or a summit instead – it will save money too.”
