Trump Says He and David Cameron May Not ‘Have a Very Good Relationship’


Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has said that he and British Prime Minister David Cameron may not have a good relationship if he becomes president.

Trump made the statement in response to Cameron calling his proposal to ban Muslims from the United States as “divisive, stupid and wrong,” in an interview with Piers Morgan, a host of ITV’s Good Morning Britain (GMB) show that aired Monday.

“It looks like we’re not going to have a very good relationship,” Trump said. “I hope to have a good relationship with him, but it sounds like he’s not willing to address the problem either.”

Trump told GMB he “didn’t care” about Sadiq Khan, the new mayor of London and the first Muslim to hold the role. Khan, who was elected earlier this month, last week rejected a statement by Trump that he could be an “exception” to the Muslim ban. “Donald Trump’s ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe,” Khan said at the time.

“He doesn’t know me, hasn’t met me, doesn’t know what I’m all about. I think they were very rude statements and, frankly, tell him I will remember those statements. They are very nasty statements,” Trump told GMB.

“When he won I wished him well. Now, I don’t care about him, I mean, it doesn’t make any difference to me, let’s see how he does, let’s see if he’s a good mayor.“
