George slams Trump as he takes new job
GEORGE Osborne blasted Donald Trump’s travel ban as he took up a post at an institution set up by one of the U.S. president’s Republican critics.
The former chancellor said British citizens will suffer as he took up a role at the McCain Institute, set up by senator John McCain.
Earlier this month, Mr Osborne took up a part-time role as a senior adviser to leading asset management firm BlackRock and has already earned more than £540,000 for speeches since being sacked from the Cabinet in July. He still gets £75K as an MP.
In his first article as the McCain Institute’s inaugural Kissinger Fellow, he said: “If the Statue of Liberty turns its back on the world, if Britain retreats behind its island shores, then it is not just others who depend on us who will pay a price – the cost will fall on our own citizens too.”
