Ed Miliband Insists Jeremy Corbyn Would Have Taken Trump To Task

Jeremy Corbyn outside House of Commons

Mr Corbyn said: "It is quite without precedent and quite unreasonable the way Trump treats London and treats Sadiq Khan".

In a furious attack, the hard-left Labour leader also lashed out at the president's "cruel and inhumane" immigration policy.

But Mr Corbyn said the president had exhibited "very unusual behaviour" by rowing back on comments he had made to the Sun about the prospects of a future UK-US trade deal, having initially said the prime minister's Brexit plan would "probably kill" a future trade deal with the US.

He will later head to Windsor Castle for tea with the Queen, before travelling to Scotland to play golf at his Turnberry resort.

"The Labour Party is committed to dialogue, including of course with those we strongly disagree with". In government we would find a way to work with his administration whilst also standing up for our values and our beliefs.

"But the Tories are rewarding President Trump with a red carpet welcome". "Human rights belong to all of us, '" Corbyn said.

"He condones racism, misogyny and prejudice, and promotes the politics of hate and fear. But above all", he continued, "the message we give here today-in all our diversity-is one of solidarity of people, of people wanting that different and better world".

Uniting the throngs gathered, Corbyn said, is "a wish to live in a world of peace not at war, a wish not to blame refugees for wars that they themselves are victims of, and a wish that we pursue the politics of unity, the politics of togetherness, the politics of recognizing the strengths and the good that is in each of us, however poor, however marginalized, however put-upon".

Following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus this week, the links with Neymar and Los Blancos grew even stronger. Meanwhile, new Real boss Julen Lopetegui is said to be keen on taking Valencia attacker Rodrigo Moreno back to the Bernabeu.

Mr Corbyn went on: "It's a very unusual thing to do, to come on a visit to another country, to meet that country's prime minister, and then announce that you would like to see as her successor a person who's just resigned from her government".

In it, the president warned Mrs May her Brexit blueprint would "probably kill" hopes of any future trade deal with the US.

Asked whether Jeremy Corbyn would have taken the US President to task, Mr Miliband replied: "Absolutely".

He said: "I have a lot of respect for Boris".

"When a major country says it wants to walk away from the United Nations council on human rights, I say, 'Sorry, you are wrong".

"I think he is a great representative for your country". I am just saying I think he would be a great Prime Minister.

The Labour leader went on: "It's a very unusual thing to do, to come on a visit to another country, to meet that country's prime minister and then announce you would like to see as her successor, a person who has just resigned from her government. I think he's got what it takes".
