Trump says US is ready to do post-Brexit trade deal//Crimson Tazvinzwa
The difference between Queen Elizabeth and Donald Trump is;
The Queen is a nobility, traditionalist, loyalist who respects honour of traditions and institutions.
While President Trump suffers from the ‘I am because I am’ kinda guy syndrome, chaotic ‘individual number one’ and just happens to be visiting chaotic ‘politicum’.
- The US president, Donald Trump, has talked up the possibility of a post-Brexit trade deal between Washington and London during his state visit. Trump claimed talks were already happening after his ambassador made clear the US would expect to be allowed business access to the NHS as part of any deal.
Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, has broadened his attack on President Trump. He has posted a video on Twitter saying Trump’s values are the opposite of London’s values and Britain’s values.
Here’s an extract.
President Trump, if you are watching this, your values, and what you stand for, are the opposite of London’s values and the values of this country. We think diversity is not a weakness. Diversity is a strength. We respect women, and we think they are equal to men.
We think it’s important to safeguard the rights of all of us, particularly the vulnerable and the maginalised. When you are president of the US, you have a massive leadership role. You have a massive platform as well. People follow what you do. What we have seen over the last few years in the USA is a rolling back of much of the progress made in previous decades. It is really important we continue to move forwards.
What we are seeing in the USA is a rolling back of the reproductive rights of women. We’ve got a situation now where some states in the USA are making it almost impossible for women to have the right to have an abortion …
The fight for gender equality shouldn’t just be a fight women and girls. All of us should be feminists. That means men and boys too …
If you believe that it’s wrong that there’s gender inequality, if you believe it’s wrong that women earn less than men, if you believe it’s wrong that women are still discriminated against in 2019, then you are a feminist.
