    The UK welcomes President Trump

    I have written to President Trump and copied it to the US Ambassador to The Court of St.James and to the Editor in Chief of the Washington Post expressing my shame and dismay at the discourtesy and disrespect being displayed toward the holder of the office of the President of the United States of America by a vociferous minority of predominantly left wing trouble makers and apologising on behalf of those who are bringing my nation into disrepute.

    I went on to say that the street protestors did not represent the majority of the British people who welcomed the holder of the office of POTUS to the UK and that any true democrat accepted that Donald Trump had been democratically elected by the citizens of the USA and should welcome the leader of the largest democracy in the world. I finished my letter by acknowledging that the USA, irrespective of who was President, was the UK's most stalwart ally and friend.

    Where were all these malcontents and their ineffective and impotent street fury, when terrorist organisations such as Hamas and Hezbollah were hosted in our Parliament bu Leader of HM Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn, or when Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese Emperor Xi Jinping, both arguably with far worse records of abuse of human rights.

    Now I don't like President Trump, and I am at times dismayed at his statements and actions, but in general he is consistent in attempting to implement the measures he was elected on. One thing that no one appears to even give him an iota of credit for is being largely responsible for generating a strong degree of 'rapprochement' with North Korea. The one thing that I and others should remember is that the USA is not our country, we do not have a democratic vote in electing the US President and we should respect the decision of the US population.

    In conclusion I believe that the office of POTUS deserves to be treated with respect by the governments and peoples of the USA's allies, and that by maintaining open channels of diplomacy some level of positive influence can be achieved; something that 'rentamob' won't achieve in a century of sundays.

    Good for you Major and no Trump isn't all Mr Wonderful and that rapprochement you mention I have heard derided before it even had a chance to start.

    I do swear that were he to achieve world peace and a cure for cancer the fashion to rubbish him would continue unabated.
    The new parliamentary democracy,it's not the will of the people that counts but the will of 650......will come back to haunt them.

    Now he's coming, demonstrating against his visit is a bit futile. Better to demonstrate against the controversial things he's said and done.

    Trump might yet achieve an end to hostility with North Korea. Even if he doesn't, he's bought some time by defusing an apparently dangerous situation.

    Credit where credit's due, as they say. But that doesn't alter the seriousness of the retrograde bad decisions he's made on all sorts of other things that will have effects beyond the USA. It also doesn't take away the question marks over his past behaviour.

    The thing is with Trump is that he said "America first" and he's acting it out. I reckon he'll get in for a second term if he's well enough to stand.

    The whole logic of their demonstrations is flawed.But what is the point even mentioning it,don't ask me I just thought I would.

    Major, that is good work. I only sent POTUS a tweet saying that I was embarrassed by the actions of my fellow countrymen (although I suspect a large number who will demonstrate won't be British).
    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

    YoUm... thanks for writing to them on all of our behalf. Did you sign it from “the people of the UK” or just yourself? If it was the former, I wonder by what authority you think you could do that?


    I’m also a bit dubious about your statement that the vast majority of the UK welcomes Trump - do you have evidence on that point?


    Protests against foreign leaders visiting have always been a part of the UK political landcape and Trump faces protests wherever he goes in his own country and around the world. Unless the protest is illegal, I don’t see an issue.


    As for North Korea - here I part company with all of you - my opinion is that they have played Trump like a violin. North Korea finished all their nuclear tests, ran out of money or resources, or both, and then managed to run their epic failure to take over the world into a victory and make it look like they had negotiated to stop testing. Also, in my view North Korea was never really a serious threat to the US or Europe anyway.

    Trump is OK with out leftwing mob. He knows us better than May does. By the way, have you seen Rees-Mogg deal with them. He's the best, as he tries to start political discussions and they can't handle it. Their brains are too stupid to structure a coherent argument.

    It didn't take you long in doing their bidding.

    This thread is full of sycophantic drivel. Fawning over 45 by sending him tweets and apologising for others are the sort of things young singers do when they wish to generate publicity.
