Far Left-wing Jeremy Corbyn says Donald Trump win is ‘rejection of establishment’ but Theresa May congratulates new US President and so do the majority of good decent British People
Theresa May has congratulated Donald Trump on being elected as the 45th president of the USA, promising to remain “strong and close partners”.
In a statement she said: “I would like to congratulate Donald Trump on being elected the next President of the United States, following a hard-fought campaign.
“Britain and the United States have an enduring and special relationship based on the values of freedom, democracy and enterprise.
“We are, and will remain, strong and close partners on trade, security and defence.
“I look forward to working with President-elect Donald Trump, building on these ties to ensure the security and prosperity of our nations in the years ahead.”
The statement came as Number 10 sources described as “nonsense” claims that the head of MI5 has gone in for an emergency meeting, insisting it was a long-scheduled meeting and that he always uses the back door.
Ukip leader Nigel Farage – who went to the US to appear at a Trump campaign rally – said he was handing over his mantle as the creator of political earthquakes to the new President, saying that 2016 was “the year of two great political revolutions”, adding: “I thought Brexit was big, but boy, this looks like it’s going to be even bigger”.
