Donald Trump responded Monday to British Prime Minister David Cameron’s comments that Trump’s Muslim ban is “stupid,” saying, “it looks like we’re not going to have a very good relationship.”
“Number one, I’m not stupid, OK? I can tell you that right now — just the opposite,” Trump told Piers Morgan on ITV’s “Good Morning Britain.” “Number two, in terms of divisive, I don’t think I’m a divisive person. I’m a unifier, unlike our president now I’m a unifier,” he added.
Cameron had previously called Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the U.S “divisive, stupid, and wrong.” His spokesman told Reuters Monday, “the prime minister has made his views on Donald Trump’s comments very clear. He disagrees with them.
“He continues to believe that preventing Muslims from entering the U.S. is divisive, stupid and wrong. He stands by his comments,” the spokesman added.
When asked who Cameron would prefer as next president, the spokesman had no comment He added that Cameron is “committed to maintaining the special relationship.”
Trump in his interview Monday said that he “[hopes] to have a good relationship with [Cameron], but it sounds like he’s not willing to address the problem either.”
“It looks like we’re not going to have a very good relationship,” the businessman added.
