Trump says he refused meeting with Jeremy Corbyn

LONDON June 5: Donald Trump has said he refused a request for a meeting from Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn during his much-anticipated state visit.
The US president branded Mr Corbyn a “somewhat negative force”, as he revealed he had decided not to meet the Labour leader during the three-day visit to London.

Labour confirmed an approach had been made to the president, while Mr Corbyn addressed thousands of anti-Trump protesters in Whitehall.

At a press conference alongside Theresa May, Mr Trump said: “I don’t know Jeremy Corbyn. Never met him, never spoke to him.

“He wanted to meet today or tomorrow and I decided that I would not do that.

“I think that he is from where I come from, somewhat of a neg force. I think that people should look to do things correctly as opposed to criticise.

“I really don’t like critics as much as I like and respect people who get things done. So I decided not to meet.”
