Donald Trump was lambasted for many comments he made lately but one comment he made on MSNBC drew the ire of even Scotland Yard. Trump said, “We have places in London and other places that are so radicalized that police are afraid of their own lives.”
At least two officers said Trump is right on that issue.
According to the Daily Mail, one officer said, “He pointed out something that is plainly obvious, something which I think we aren’t as a nation willing to own up to.”
Another police officer allegedly told the Daily Mail that he and other law enforcement officials are afraid that they could become targets of terrorism especially as they have received a “dire warning” from their superiors of wearing a uniform “even in my own car.”
At the same time, there is a petition floating around in the UK with over 200,000 signatures that calls for the barring of Trump from Britain for hate speech.
After Trump made the comments regarding officers and Muslim communities, Britain Prime Minister David Cameron said Trump is “divisive, unhelpful and quite simply wrong.”
So far, Trump is still in the lead among Republican voters.
