Donald Trump has a white supremacy problem, and now it is causing Great Britain, America’s closest ally, to rebuke him in an historically public way. After Trump retweeted the leader of Britain First, a fascist white nationalist group, Prime Minister Theresa May decided she had had enough. She publicly criticized Trump, and made it clear that she in no way approved of his identifying with Britain First. May said of Trump’s tweets:
“The fact that we work together does not mean that we’re afraid to say when we think the United States has got it wrong, and be very clear with them.
“And I’m very clear that retweeting from Britain First was the wrong thing to do.”
May went on to call Britain First a “hateful organization” that has caused division in her nation. Now, it seems that a so-called “working visit” that had been planned soon for Trump in Britain will now be cancelled.
Trump, of course, instead of trying to patch things up in the “special relationship” that has always existed between the United States and Great Britain, decided to attack the Prime Minister of our closest and most important ally – again, of course, via Twitter:
.@Theresa_May, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!

Donald Trump is an absolute disgrace. He is shredding America’s international relationships, and painting us as a country full of bigoted, knuckle-dragging morons in front of the entire world. No matter who cancelled the visit to the UK for Trump, they were right to do so. The UK’s citizens are right to be outraged that this buffoon was set to come to their great nation. Now, if only we Americans could get rid of him in the same way. We can hope.
