Doughty – Brexit would put UK’s future in the hands of “erratic” Trump

Donald Trump has today sacked Rex Tillerson as US Secretary of State a day after Tillerson backed the UK government over allegations against Russia and the President pointedly refused to do so.

Commenting, Stephen Doughty MP, leading supporter of the Open Britain campaign, said:

“Donald Trump simply cannot be seen as a reliable or trustworthy ally of the UK when it comes to standing firm over Russia or any of the other challenges we face.

"Yet the Brextremists want to place the future of our economy in his hands.

"Today's shocking and erratic behaviour by the US President is a reminder of just how big a risk Brexit is for the UK's future. That is why it is patriotic and right to continue to ask if following through with Brexit is in the national interest."
