‘Completely unacceptable’: Theresa May reprimands Donald Trump over US Democrat women rant

‘Completely unacceptable’: Theresa May reprimands Donald Trump over US Democrat women rant
British Prime Minister Theresa May has branded US President Donald Trump’s comments “completely unacceptable,” after he angrily suggested on Twitter that four US “progressive” Democrat congresswomen should “go back” home.

Trump’s launched a triple-tweet tirade at left-wing Democrats: New York’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib, Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar, and Massachusetts’ Ayanna Pressley on Sunday.

The US president provoked accusations of racism, after telling the group to go back to their “totally broken and crime infested” countries of origin after receiving brutal criticism from them for his immigration policies and his ostensibly uncritical support for Israel.

On Monday, a Downing Street spokesman insisted that “The Prime Minister’s view is that the language used to refer to these women was completely unacceptable.”

Only one of the women, Omar, was born outside of the United States, fleeing the civil war in Somalia, and immigrating to the US at the age of 12.

The president continued the war of words directed at the Democratic progressives in an early-morning tweet Monday, in which he called for them to apologize to the US, Israel, and to his office.

May’s intervention comes after UK-US ties became increasingly strained following the leak of secret memos from the British ambassador to the US branding Trump and his administration as “dysfunctional,” “inept,” and “incompetent.”
