It turns out the UK’s Jeremy Corbyn was a trailblazer, not a dud, when it came to nuclear weapons.

Only a few months after Mr Corbyn was pilloried in the press for his anti-nuclear opinions, Donald Trump has admitted similar sentiments – albeit a little more guardedly.

Mr Trump is the frontrunner to gain the Republican nomination in this year’s US Presidential election.

Will the UK press treat him with the same disdain it gave Mr Corbyn?

In an interview with the Washington Post’s editorial board, Trump said:

“Well I just think we have much bigger risks. I mean I think we have militarily tremendous risks. I think we’re in tremendous peril. I think our biggest form of climate change we should worry about is nuclear weapons.

“I don’t want to use, I don’t want to start the process of nuclear.”
