Donald Trump: I Love To Visit UK And I Don’t Care About Opponents
Trump said: “it's just one of those things. I don't say anything. You know why? I don't care.”

The US President Donald Trump said he would “love” to visit the UK and does not care about British protestors.

Trump’s comment came as Downing Street confirmed he will finally touch down for a “working visit” later this year.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who met Trump yesterday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, promised Trump a full state visit, including meeting the Queen, but he cancelled the visit reportedly due to “lack of love” and embarrassing street protests.

Recently, London Mayor Sadiq Khan and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn declared that Trump should not come to the UK, and warned of large protests if the trip goes ahead. However, officials have made clear that the invitation remains open.

Trump spoke with Piers Morgan while at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. During their interview on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Trump said:

“I don’t care. I don’t care!” he replied when asked by Morgan what he’d say to those who disagree with him.

Morgan told Trump that some political figures in the UK would like him banned from the country. Trump responded: “I hadn’t heard about banning, I think a lot of the people in your country like what I stand for, they respect what I stand for and I do stand for tough borders.”

“The real me is somebody that loves Britain, loves the UK. I love Scotland,” he added:

“One of the biggest problems I have in winning (the presidency), I won’t be able to get back there so often. I would love to go there.”

“As you know, before this happened, I would be there a lot. Very special people and a very special place. I don’t want to cause any difficulty for your country, that I can tell you.”

President Trump was met with fierce criticism last year in the UK and US after he re-tweeted anti-Muslim videos posted by Jayda Franzen, deputy leader of the far-right group Britain First.

“If you’re telling me they’re horrible people, horrible racist people I would certainly apologise if you would like me to do that,” Trump told Morgan.

“I know nothing about them,” he added: “I don’t want to be involved with [these] people, but you’re telling me about these people because I know nothing about these people.”
