Statement On President Trump Tweet

7th December 2017

By blindly repeating the lies of the fascist Britain First, who have constantly spread their bigotry and lies on social media, President Donald Trump has crossed a line. They had posted videos which they (wrongly) stated were examples of Moslems committing atrocities. These videos have been widely discredited after genuine investigation.  He has already proved himself a sexist, racist bumbling oaf many times in his short spell as President and ‘Leader of the Free World’ but this latest outburst on Twitter has gone beyond mere condemnation as far as this party is concerned. As Brendan Cox husband of Jo Cox, the MP brutally murdered by a Britain First supporter, tweeted, “Trump has legitimised the far right in his own country; now he is trying to do it in ours. Spreading hatred has consequences and the President should be ashamed of himself.”

Trump should be condemned by every supporter of human rights and freedom. Freedom does not mean ‘freedom to spread racist and fascist propaganda’ but freedom to live in peace and harmony with our fellow human beings, no matter their/our race, gender or religion.

Solidarity condemns outright Trump’s poisonous messages and offers our solidarity with the Moslem population who have been further endangered by Trump’s irresponsible actions. We demand that the UK government cancel the proposed state visit by this poor excuse of a politician.
