Theresa May should have stood up for Britain and our values and condemned President Trump

Jeremy
Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party ,
responding to Theresa May’s press conference in
Turkey, said:

“President
Trump’s executive order against refugees and Muslims should shock and appal us
all. 

“Theresa
May should have stood up for Britain and our values by condemning his actions.
It should sadden our country that she chose not to.

“After
Trump’s hideous actions and May’s weak failure to condemn them, it’s more
important than ever for us to say to refugees seeking a place of safety, that
they will always be welcome in Britain.”
