Trump in London poisons UK and Europe

The unbelievable American President, while on a full state visit to Britain, didn’t hesitate to target the British crown jewel which is the country’s health system, the National Health Service. Trump plainly said he wants Britain out of the European Union, in order to open the NHS budget for the American health contractors to scavenge.

Last Monday, the New York realtor, who is currently occupying The White House in Washington D.C., delivered a joint Press conference with the British Prime Minister Theresa May. Having promised a “phenomenal” trade deal for the UK after the country leaves the EU, then he added “everything is on the table, including the NHS”.

PM May commented “the scope of trade talks had to be agreed by both countries”. Being the lamest of all lame ducks of British Prime Ministers, Theresa May couldn’t find anything else to say in order counter Trump. However, eyeing the NHS so openly betrays Trump’s insatiable appetite for British ‘goodies’.

Demolishing the EU

Quite openly, the US Commander in Chief dismissed the values of the European Union and said “Brexit will happen and it probably should happen because the UK is a great, great country and it wants its own identity”. In other words, the other nations of the EU have lost their identity or more by remaining in the club. Cunningly, his reference to an “extraordinary US-UK alliance” will materialize after Britain leaves the EU.

Trump was assaultive not only against the European Union. He also attacked the British institutions by briefly refusing to meet with Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the major opposition Labor Party. He called him “negative Corbyn” and “somewhat of a negative force”. The American realtor also attacked the London Major, Sadiq Khan and called him “stone cold loser”. Trump usually cannot hide his racism and neither could he this time. His comments about Corbyn and Khan revealed a wide raging racism, filled with ideological disrespect for people who have more values than money and clout.

In Brexit he trusts

Trump’s intrusion in British internal affairs included more flagrant disregard for rules and true statesmanship. He invited the Brexit champion harlequin Nigel Farage for lunch at the residence of the US ambassador in Winfield House. Farage didn’t miss the opportunity and afterwards declared that “Mr Trump really believes in Brexit”.
Trump interfered with the British internal affairs even prior to his arrival to Britain. Speaking to reporters while leaving the White House for London, he praised Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage and fervently supported Brexit. And all that at a time when the majority of the Brits voted only last week in favor of the ‘Remain’ political parties.

Choosing the next PM

Last Monday, The European Sting reported on this issue in detail: “In Trump’s latest intrusion in other countries’ internal affairs, his support for Boris Johnson to become the next British PM, triggered waves of criticism in Britain. The American President also told the Brits not to pay the divorce cost to the EU of $50 billion. He also supported in length the option of a no-deal Brexit. He asserted that Britain should just leave the negotiations table and abandon the club, in case Brussels do not accept what London requests”.

Alas, Trump’s incursion comes at a very difficult time for the UK-EU relations and the fate of Brexit. Irresponsibly enough, the American President didn’t hesitate for a moment to capitalize on Europe’s woes. He thus shamelessly engaged in making them poisonous.
