Donald Trump is making it harder to defeat extremists, says David Cameron

Source: The Guardian

Friday 22 January 2016 22.27 GMT

US presidential hopeful Donald Trump is making it more difficult to confront and defeat extremists by making the “fundamental mistake” of trying to blame all Muslims for the ideology of a minority, David Cameron has said.

Trump, who is vying to win the Republican nomination, sparked widespread anger after he demanded a block on Muslims entering the US and claimed parts of London were so radicalised police were “afraid for their own lives”.

MPs spent three hours debating whether the tycoon should be allowed into the country after more than 570,000 people signed a petition asking the government to bar him. The prime minister’s warning comes after he branded Trump’s remarks as “divisive, stupid and wrong”.

The interventions are likely to put diplomatic relations between Britain and the US under significant strain if the businessman is elected in the November poll.

1. David Cameron is the leader of the Conservative Party in Britain

 

What does that tell you about Trump?

5. More like the BNP

 

I think the US would be well-served by having a greater number of viable parties, to be honest.

9. Cameron has a lot in common with Republicans

From his dismantling of the NHS to the austerity uber alles economic policies, there's a heck of a lot of shitty things our government is doing that teabaggers would approve of.

7. The British Conservative Party is like our Democratic Party

 

So it doesn't tell me much at all. Now, if the British National Party leader said that, it would be another story.

10. No it's not

 

Labor is Democrats, Conservative is Republicans.

11. No that's not what I'm saying

 

I'm saying the UK is a lot further left than we are. So their Conservatives are like moderate Republicans at best, or conservative Democrats at worse. They are not as divisive as Republicans, and not nearly as hateful.
