British PM critical of views
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.
