President Donald Trump last year ranted about nonexistent “no go” zones in London to U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May — and she was forced to tell him that he was mistaken.
In a big Bloomberg article on Trump’s attribute with May, former May strategy executive Chris Wilkins says that “Trump incited to May and told her he believed there were tools of London that were effectively ‘no-go areas’ due to the series of Islamic extremists” during a assembly between the two universe leaders in 2017.
Wilkins claims that May didn’t let Trump’s fraudulent articulate indicate stand, however, and spoke up to “correct him” and surprise him that London did not have any “no-go zones.”
Elsewhere in the story, Bloomberg reports that Trump berated May for the astray diagnosis that he perceived in the U.K. press and refused to set foot in the country until she could pledge that he would not be greeted with mass protests.
“May responded to contend such diagnosis was simply the way the British press operate, and there wasn’t much she could do,” Bloomberg writes. “In the secure fort underneath the primary minister’s office, her advisers listened in to the call in mystification at Trump’s demand.”
Katie Perrior, May’s former communications director, tells Bloomberg that she now regrets her former boss’s decision to offer Trump a state invitation to revisit their country.
“It was transparent to me and others at the time that an offer of a state revisit to President Trump was over the top and unnecessary,” she says.
