Lib Dems: Donald Trump and Boris Johnson both unfit for office

November 2, 2019 9:00 AM

Chuka Umunna MPFollowing Donald Trump's interview on LBC this week in which he endorsed Boris Johnson, Liberal Democrat shadow Foreign Secretary Chuka Umunna said:

"Donald Trump is unfit to hold the office of President of the United States. Boris Johnson is unfit to be Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

"This endorsement is yet another example of the cuddly relationship between the two men. As the saying goes, you can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep.

"Trump is a bully, a misogynist and a racist. Yet the Conservatives have fawned to secure a post-Brexit trade deal with him. A trade deal that would threaten food standards and our precious NHS.

"Liberal Democrats will continue to stand up to regressive politics and will continue to fight to stop Brexit and build a brighter future."
