Narcissistic bully Donald Trump is at it again and this time, he’s not just using his bully tactics to take on a single candidate or even an entire political party, but the whole United Kingdom.
Last month an online petition was started in the UK to ban Donald Trump from entering the country because of what many in the UK consider to be Trump’s consistent use of inflammatory “Hate Speech” towards the Muslim community. The petition which was filed on December 8th of last year received over a half million signatures, well over the hundred thousand needed to open the issue up for debate in Parliament. On January 18th, the debate on whether or not to ban the political carnival barker, Trump, from the UK begins — a debate that is sure to have much political fallout regardless of Parliament’s decision.
In response to the upcoming debate, Trump shamelessly tried to strong-arm Parliament by threatening to pull out investments in two prominent golf resorts in Scotland equaling almost 700 million dollars. In a recent statement made by the Trump organization, Trump made it clear that,
Any action to restrict travel would force the Trump Organization to immediately end these and all future investments we are currently contemplating in the United Kingdom,
Of course, the true hypocrisy in all of this is that Trump, a man who has repeatedly called for barring Latino Immigrants, Muslims and Syrian Refugees from entering the United States would be so outraged at the thought of another country denying him entry. I guess when you have an ego the size of Trumps you feel you entitled to dish it out while never having to take it.
