Labour MP, David Lammy has slammed Donald Trump for his policy on immigration, going so far to call him ‘racist’ and a ‘Nazi sympathiser’
Mr Lammy tweeted yesterday afternoon: “Re: Daily Mail story today. Yes, if Trump comes to the UK I will be out protesting on the streets. He is a racist KKK and Nazi sympathiser.”
The Tweet attracted 2,000 retweets and 7,000 likes.

David Lammy had also told a Labour Party conference fringe event, organised by alt-left open borders-backing campaign group Stand Up to Racism, that Trump is a “racist” who counts “Ku Klux members” amongst his closest advisors.
“We need to marshal our efforts to fight. I will be on the streets when eventually they cave in and let Donald Trump into this country,” the Daily Mail reported him as saying.
“The man is a racist. The man has Ku Klux members in his inner team. The man thinks it is OK to have protesting Nazis on the streets.
“Of course I will campaign against it. If I have to chain myself to the door of Number 10 this black man will do it.”
What do you think of his comments?
Are they too far? Or is Trump as bad as everyone makes out he is?
