Breitbart London editor in chief Raheem Kassam accused the British Prime Minister Theresa May of seizing President Trump’s Twitter account as an opportunity to “virtue signal” and said since his election the rules of the political game had changed.
Responding to the assertion that Britain’s Theresa May was right to hit out at Donald Trump on Twitter after he retweeted a series of videos purporting to show Islamist attacks, Kassam pointed out that the political paradigm had shifted in the United States since the election.
He said: “The rulebook went out of the window on November 8th 2016 when the American people decided they wanted a Bombastic government, they saw it during the campaign and they elected it.”
Pointing out that Britain was in no position to waste political capital with their most powerful ally as the nation prepared to depart the European Union and begin to make its own way in the world, Kassam continued: “So for him to call out the Brit PM when she is using this event to virtue signal, and you have a situation where we need a trade deal with the United States. In the post-Brexit world that is imperative, and she’s flushing that down the toilet to virtue signal over a couple of tweets?”.
As reported by Breitbart London, Kassam also took the opportunity of speaking on BBC news about President Trump to state the reaction in the United Kingdom was “hysterical” and more akin to preparations for war than reasoned debate.
