Trump Postpones State Visit - Global Justice Now Response

London, UK

Responding to the news that President Trump's state visit is being postponed until next year, Nick Dearden, the director of Global Justice Now and part of the UK Stop Trump coalition said:

"The fact that Trump has been forced to delay his state visit is testament to widespread revulsion that large sections of the British public have to the hate-mongering, right wing populism that he stands for. He has been scared off for now, but as we have seen from the G20, Theresa May is determined to cosy up to him at every opportunity and is keen to rush headlong into a toxic trade deal with Trump that would be disastrous for the UK public. We'll be ready for Trump and his dangerous, divisive politics next year, and in the mean time we'll be opposing the free-market fundamentalism that May and her colleagues are trying to cook up in the UK-USA trade deal they are promising."

Global Justice Now is a democratic social justice organisation working as part of a global movement to challenge the powerful and create a more just and equal world. We mobilise people in the UK for change, and act in solidarity with those fighting injustice, particularly in the global south.
