The Government appears to be trying to downplay yesterday’s explosive Donald Trump interview with The Sun, in which he heavily criticised Theresa May’s Brexit proposal, argued that Boris Johnson would make a good Prime Minister and blamed Sadiq Khan for terrorist attacks in London.
Luciana Berger MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:
“It is nothing short of embarrassing for our Government to return Donald Trump’s insults to our country with bowing and scraping.
“The Government's disastrous week just keeps getting worse - the Brexit White Paper is a shambles that satisfies no-one, and now Trump is openly mocking Theresa May's negotiating strategy. The country deserves so much better than this.
“With the Brexit process in meltdown, and with Trump making the whole situation much worse, it's time for Parliament to get behind a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal.”
