UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, condemned Donald Trump for retweeting, Britain First, a far right anti-Muslim nationalist group but she fell short of cancelling a state visit.
While holding a press conference during a visit to Jordan, May wouldn't comment further on the tweets and would not commit to cancelling the visit saying,
"An invitation for a state visit has been extended and has been accepted. We have yet to set a date."
There was much backlash against the Prime Minister for not taking a harder stance. Many also criticized Trumps willingness to double down and further insult May.
I asked Theresa May if a state visit from Donald Trump will still go ahead, she says “an invitation has been extended and accepted”. Doesn’t answer whether he’s a “fit person to meet the Queen”. Answers on a postcard— Lynn Davidson (@ByLynnDavidson) November 30, 2017
The idea Donald Trump should be honoured with a state visit after the events of the past 24 hours is utterly ridiculous. No.10 should formally cancel it.— (((Dan Hodges))) (@DPJHodges) November 30, 2017
Very disappointing watching Theresa May be her usual cautious self fielding questions about Donald Trump's tweets rather than confounding expectations and delivering a sharp, clear denunciation. Bilateral reciprocity demands it, and it would have strengthened her image at home.— Sam Hooper (@SamHooper) November 30, 2017
