Re­spect should be given to Trump

Loughborough Echo - - LETTERS -

ON THE BBC Break­fast Show they broad­cast an in­ter­view with Vince Ca­ble, the con­tents of which re­moved all doubt in my mind how low the BBC has sunk in the bi­ased pro­grams com­ing out of what was once a world wide renowned or­ga­ni­za­tion.

The news­reader asked Ca­ble’s views on the visit to Bri­tain of Don­ald Trump. I will not re­peat his re­ply, suf­fice it to say the vile re­marks about Mr Trump which came from Ca­ble’s mouth were dis­gust­ing. I would re­mind all those in­volved in this aw­ful dis­play of rude­ness and in­sin­u­a­tions to re­mem­ber that Don­ald Trump is the Pres­i­dent of the USA, and as such should be treated with re­spect, and not de­rided and in­sulted by some low life in­ter­viewer and his guests.

What would our re­ac­tion be if the Amer­i­can me­dia pub­lished dis­gust­ing re­marks about our Queen. The end re­sult of all this neg­a­tive treat­ment of the Pres­i­dent could se­ri­ously dam­age the re­la­tion­ship be­tween our two coun­tries on a far reach­ing scale never be­fore seen.

Also re­mem­ber the thou­sands of Amer­i­can men and women who fought and died for us in the last war in the over­throw of our en­e­mies and have con­tin­ued to do so up to the present day.

Let us not jeop­ar­dize this won­der­ful friend­ship be stupid re­marks by wet-be­hind-ears em­ploy­ees of the BBC and an over the hill failed politi­cian.
