Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for the US Presidency, has made more provocative comments about British politicians, raising questions about a US-UK “special relationship” if he enters the White House.
Baited by Piers Morgan in an interview shown on British television on Monday morning, Trump said he might not have a good relationship with Prime Minister David Cameron because of Cameron’s criticism in January of Trump’s declaration that all Muslims should be temporarily barred from entering the US. When Morgan mentioned the comment of the new Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, that Trump’s proposal was “ignorant”, the Republican candidate suggested that both take an IQ test then said, ” Tell him, I will remember those statements.”
