May condemns Trump’s racist remarks about congresswomen

Scotland Correspondent

Four outspoken Democratic politicians – all women of colour, all US citizens, all but one born in the United States, yet, according to President Trump, they should all go home and fix the problems in their own countries.

Leading Democrats have rounded on Mr Trump, accusing him of racism, while Theresa May described his language as “completely unacceptable”.

Far from apologising, the President insisted his tweets had not been racist, declaring that “if you hate our country, if you’re complaining all the time, you can leave right now”.
