Kate has spoken out against Donald Trump’s retweets from Britain First, during a debate in parliament.
This week America’s President shared propaganda videos from the far-right Islamaphobic group, Britain First, a group which is run by convicted racists.
People across the UK were outraged that the President was retweeting Britain Firsts’ views and MPs had a debate in parliament to express their concerns to the Home Secretary, Amber Rudd.
During the debate, Kate called on the Home Secretary to ask the Prime Minister to tell Trump that such “hate speech” from Britain First means that her minority constituents feel more fear and fear alienation and suspicion from others in the community.
Kate also said that the President would not be welcome in the UK because he is “perpetrating and extending that hate speech.”
Commenting on the debate, Kate said, “I simply cannot overstate my utter contempt for Donald Trump.
“The President endorsing the vile, toxic and inflammatory views of Britain First simply serves the ends of those who wish to promote hatred between different groups and towards minorities in my constituency. That’s completely unacceptable and that’s why he’s not welcome in this country”.
