PETALING JAYA Malaysian leaders should be “wise enough” not to get too friendly or close to US President Donald Trump a former diplomat has said

Sarah Huckabee Sanders was torn apart by Morning Joe today after her "stunning" defense of President Trump's tweeting of unverified Islamophobic videos.

The trip, a low key version of a state visit with no meeting with the Queen, was proposed as a way of allowing Mr Trump to come to the United Kingdom without sparking the mass protests which would accompany a formal state visit.

"We - Theresa May and I - are so different".

This isn't the first time Trump has tagged the wrong account when trying to tweet; earlier this year, he mistakenly linked to a wrong account for the Washington Post while complaining about "collusion" in the media. "We are doing just fine!"

"I'm very clear that retweeting from Britain First was the wrong thing to do", May said during a press conference, adding that "we're not afraid to say where we think the United States got it wrong". "But, I think, to say it's basically all of Islam, us versus them, or to retweet this video, is definitely not helpful in the least".

"I am very clear that retweeting from Britain First was the wrong thing to do", she said to applause from her Jordanian audience.

In evidence of alarm over the episode, Britain's ambassador to the US, Sir Kim Darroch, disclosed he had raised the government's concerns over Mr Trump's retweets with the White House.

An emergency debate grantedJohn Bercow has said openly he is opposed to hosting Trump on a state visit.

The shadow home secretary Diane Abbott denounced the President's comments as "offensive to all decent British people".

Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, posted a statement on Twitter saying Trump's retweeting was promoting a "vile, extremist group" and said he would "not be welcomed" in Britain.

Attention has now turned to whether Prime Minister Theresa May will cancel Trump's planned state visit to the UK.
