Abiola: Trump’s worst mistake could be his worst achievement
- by admin
LONDON — U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to ban travel to the United Kingdom from seven predominantly Muslim countries and suspend refugee resettlement was a mistake, according to British Prime Minister David Cameron, who said Tuesday he is open to reopening talks.
Cameron said he hopes to meet with Trump, who has repeatedly said the U.K. would be better off with a “hard Brexit” than a “soft Brexit” that would be more accepting of the U-K.
A hard Brexit would see the U,K.
remain in the European Union, but with a more generous welfare system and lower tax rates.
Coventry, the first British city to be added to the list of seven Muslim-majority countries, is one of the more liberal parts of Britain and has been hailed as a model for the rest of the country.
Cities including Brighton, Brighton and Reading, all in England, have also been added to a list of destinations that would have to allow refugees to come to Britain if they are approved.
The decision has come as a shock to British politicians who had campaigned on the idea that the U.-K.
should remain in a reformed European Union.
Cameras and a helicopter fly over the town of Dorking, northwest of London, on Oct. 31, 2021, to show the first day of a new policy allowing citizens to enter the U.,K.
after a government ban, after which Britain would be allowed to return to the EU.
“We can’t do this to ourselves,” Cameron said in a statement.
“We can and should.
If we allow people from abroad to come here, they will make a mockery of our values.”
Cameron, who is running for re-election in 2019, said the decision is “the worst mistake of our modern era” and is “unhelpful” for the U..
The prime minister, a Conservative, said his government will be open to talks with the Trump administration to help him resolve the issue.
He said he has already reached out to the White House, where he spoke to Vice President Mike Pence and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.
Cameron was the first sitting British prime minister to travel to a Muslim country and the second to do so in a leadership role.
His visit came less than a week after Cameron held a telephone call with Trump and U.
S President Hassan Rouhani.
Calls from the White and British leaders were also made for the two countries to continue working together to protect their national interests and the people of Britain.
Theresa May, the U.’s second-highest-ranking British official, said in her statement that she has spoken to President Trump and has agreed to continue to meet him and the new president.
She said she is willing to continue our work together on a range of issues.
She added that she is working hard to keep the U to the values of our country.
