Trump says NHS ‘broke and not working’

Political Correspondent

Donald Trump has triggered a new spat with the British government after he turned to Twitter to vent his fury, this time about the state of the NHS. Early this morning, Mr Trump tweeted that thousands of people had been demonstrating in the UK because the National Health Service was, he said, “broke and not working”. The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt hit back, telling the President he was proud of the NHS despite the challenges it faced, where all get care no matter the size of their bank balance.
