The Henry Jackson Society today commented ahead of the visit of US President Donald Trump to the United Kingdom.
Dr Alan Mendoza, Executive Director of the Henry Jackson Society, said:
“It is absolutely right that the leader of our strongest ally is visiting Britain. Maintaining the ‘special relationship’ has never been more important than in this time of global instability, and as we forge a new national and international identity with Brexit.
“Petty virtue signalling in the form of protests and blimps should not distract from the importance of the enduring Special Relationship to the UK’s national future. It is risible that so much energy is being expended against President Trump, when not a finger is lifted by the same protesters when real autocrats and human rights abusers visit London.”
