Bri­tish PM crit­i­cal of views

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter David Cameron says he’d be happy to meet Don­ald Trump if he be­comes the Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial can­di­date.

But the Bri­tish leader re­peated his claim that Trump’s pro­posal for a tem­po­rary ban on Mus­lims en­ter­ing the United States is “wrong and di­vi­sive” and “a very dan­ger­ous thing to say”.

Trump said last week that he was “not go­ing to have a very good re­la­tion­ship” with Cameron, though he later back­tracked - and even said the prime min­is­ter had in­vited him to visit 10 Down­ing St.

Asked yes­ter­day if he’d meet Trump, Cameron said: “I don’t know.”

He added: “Amer­i­can pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates have made a habit of com­ing through Europe and through the UK, if that hap­pens I’d be happy to.”

Mean­while, Trump’s gun poli­cies are “not just way out there” but “dan­ger­ous” and would make Amer­ica less safe, pres­i­den­tial ri­val Hil­lary Clin­ton has said.

“This is some­one run­ning to be pres­i­dent of the United States of Amer­ica - a coun­try fac­ing a gun vi­o­lence epi­demic - and he’s talk­ing about more guns in our schools, he’s talk­ing about more ha­tred and di­vi­sion in our streets,” the likely Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee said of her Repub­li­can ri­val. “That’s no way to keep us safe.”

Clin­ton’s crit­i­cism of the Trump on Satur­day came the day af­ter he slammed her as “Heart­less Hil­lary” for back­ing re­stric­tions on gun own­er­ship in a speech be­fore the Na­tional Ri­fle As­so­ci­a­tion con­ven­tion in Louisville, Ken­tucky (pic­tured).

Clin­ton spoke at a con­fer­ence or­gan­ised by the Trayvon Martin Foun­da­tion to help moth­ers whose chil­dren or other rel­a­tives have died from shoot­ings. It was led by Sy­b­rina Ful­ton, whose 17year-old son, Trayvon Martin, was fa­tally shot in 2012.
