The Labour leader has taken a swipe back at Donald Trump for saying he would take the UK into ‘such bad places’ if elected as Prime Minister.
The US President didn’t mince his words when asked what he thought of Jeremy Corbyn in an interview by Nigel Farage on Thursday.
He ripped into the MP for Islington North and batted away his suggestion a Conservative Party trade deal would allow Trump to ‘take over’ our National Health Service.
The POTUS called Boris Johnson the ‘exact right guy for the times’ and said him and Brexit Party leader Farage could be an ‘unstoppable force’ together.
When asked what he thought of the exchange Corbyn told LBC: ‘I thought it was extraordinary, it’s not his business who’s elected to be Prime Minister of this country, we live in a parliamentary democracy, we’re having an election campaign at the moment.
‘He’s entitled to his opinions on the political directions his country takes or indeed any other takes.’
He slammed Trump for pulling the US out of the Paris agreement on climate change and urged him to ‘look at the environmental damage done around the world’.
The prime ministerial hopeful also said the USA ‘spends more on health yet excludes more people from health care’.
Today Corbyn said he was ‘deeply suspicious’ of Boris Johnson’s intentions for the health service as he visited Swindon as part of his election campaign.
He vowed to defend the NHS against a ‘sell out’ to US companies in a trade deal brokered with Trump’s administration.
