CARDIFF South and Penarth MP Stephen Doughty labelled US President Donald Trump "a racist, incompetent, unthinking, or all three," during a passionate speech in the House of Commons earlier today (November 30).

The President came under fire for retweeting three online posts by UK-based far-right group Britain First yesterday (November 29), with the Labour MP the first to criticise Mr Trump in Parliament.

The posts, which are links to unverified videos claiming to show attacks against white people carried out by Muslims, were originally tweeted by Jayda Fransen, Britain First's deputy leader. Ms Fransen has previously been convicted for religiously aggravated harassment and for breaches of the Public Order Act.

Prime Minister Theresa May was among those to criticise the President, saying he was "wrong" to retweet the videos.

In an interview with US news network, CNN, Mr Doughty said that the President of the United States should not be treated differently to anybody else accused of "stirring up hatred and division."

Earlier in Parliament, Mr Doughty said that the Prime Minister's offer of an official state visit to the President was "premature" and should be withdrawn.

"The extraordinary events we have seen undoubtedly underline why members from across this house were right to make that call about him not coming here, and why the Prime Minister’s premature offer of a state visit should not go ahead," he said.

"Let’s be clear. This is the President of the United States sharing with millions, inflammatory and divisive content deliberately posted to sow hatred and division by a convicted criminal – who is facing further charges – who represents a vile, fascist organisation.

"By sharing it, he is either a racist, incompetent, unthinking, or all three."

Addressing questions from CNN over comments made by Newport West MP Paul Flynn, who said that President Trump should be arrested for inciting racial hatred if he visited to the UK, Mr Doughty said he did not know whether the President had committed a criminal offence.
