The Special Relationship is at risk of meltdown today after Donald Trump lashed out at Theresa May for criticising his retweets of a far-right group.
The US president demanded the PM focus on ‘Islamic terrorism taking place in the UK’ after Mrs May (pictured in Saudi Arabia last night) said he was ‘wrong’ to share
anti-Muslim videos posted by Britain First (inset). Mr Trump’s tweets drew cold fury from across the political spectrum in the UK, with fresh calls for his State Visit invite
– extended by Mrs May on behalf of the Queen in January – to be withdrawn. Work and Pensions Secretary David Gauke insisted Mrs May had been right to call out Mr
Trump’s behaviour. ‘If that has upset Donald Trump then so be it,’ he said. Initially Trump sent his blast to a Theresa May Scrivener (top right with his partner Steve)
who lives in a flat in Bognor Regis and has six followers on Twitter. Mr Trump’s
tagging mistake led to a flurry of tweets urging him to ‘learn his world leaders’ and messages from angry Britons urging him to ‘back off’.
