Thornberry: ‘I would confront Trump on crazy policies’

Labour take a firm line with Donald Trump, according to Emily Thornberry. In contrast, Theresa May held his hand.

There are other stories in UK politics besides Brexit and the collapse of the Tory party.

Labour’s Emily Thornberry has staked out new territory, calling out the Tories as weak in their dealings with the US president.

In comparison, Theresa May held his hand.

It seems Ms Thornberry may have found fertile territory in which to grow more support for her party.

The Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry has said her party would take a much firmer line with President Donald Trump were it in government, and she would not be afraid to say where she disagreed with him.

She accused the President of “completely inappropriate language” over the North Korea crisis, warning that the world was only a miscalculation away from “terrible consequences”.

Ms Thornberry suggested members of Mr Trump’s administration believed the President had a deliberate policy to portray himself as “crazy”.

    Certainly. one has to wonder why people in the Trump’s administration allow him to carry on as he is. All people in democratic governments are there only by consent. Donald Trump seems to be trying to run the U.S.A. like he runs his business. This is not HIS business and he cannot do what the poop he pleases but nobody appears to have informed him of this fact. Appears. The grandstanding, with regard to North Korea, in foolhardy and dangerous. His twitter account should be seized.He seems to want to fight everybody, regardless of how petty the issue and so publicly, too. I am ti-red of politicians conducting so-called diplomacy in the public arena.
