Theresa May launches stinging attack on Donald Trump in United Nations address

THE MIRROR UK – BEN GLAZE

Theresa May tonight launched a stinging attack on Donald Trump minutes before a face-to-face meeting with the US President.

The Prime Minister railed against his decision to pull America out of the Paris climate change deal and blasted nations which erect trade barriers and pursue protectionism.

Addressing the United Nations General Assembly in New York, Mrs May issued slap downs to Mr Trump, Russian president Vladimir Putin and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

Leaders who fail to respect international agreements risk jeopardising faith in institutions, she warned.

Delivering a thinly-veiled rebuke to the US President, she said climate change “is depleting and degrading the planet we leave to our children”.
