British MP calls Trump a 'racist', vows to stop state visit to UK

A British Member of Parliament has accused Donald Trump of being a “racist Ku Klux Klan and Nazi sympathizer” and vowed to “chain” himself to the door of Number 10 if the US president is granted a state visit to the United Kingdom.

“If Trump comes to the UK I will be out protesting on the streets,” David Lammy, a former higher education minister, tweeted on Tuesday.  

The Labour MP made the comment after he told the party’s annual conference in Brighton that Trump was a “racist” who “has KKK members in his inner team.” 

“We need to martial our efforts to fight. I will be on the streets when eventually they cave in and let Donald Trump into this country,” he said. “The man thinks it is OK to have protesting Nazis on the streets.”

“Of course I will campaign against it. If I have to chain myself to the door of Number 10 this black man will do it,” Lammy said.
