Boris Johnson, Jeremy Hunt and Theresa May Condemn Trump’s Attack on Democrats

Theresa May, the Prime Minister, as well as the two candidates for the leadership of the Conservative Party, Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson, have criticised Donald Trump, the US President, for words he used against four Democrats.

Trump said in reference to four female Democrats:

“So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”

A spokesperson for Theresa May said:

“Her view is that the language which was used to refer to the women was completely unacceptable.”

Jeremy Hunt said:

“I have three half-Chinese children, and they are British citizens born on the NHS, and if anyone ever said to them ‘go back to China’, I would be utterly appalled. And I would say something else, it is totally un-British to do that and so I hope that would never happen in this country.”

Boris Johnson said:

“Relations between the UK and US are incredibly important. But if you are the leader of a great multiracial, multicultural country you simply cannot use that kind of language about sending people back to where they came from. It went out decades and decades ago and thank heavens for that. It’s totally unacceptable.”
