Can you spot a Tory election lie?Take the Lie Detector
Even before Donald Trump had touched the tarmac at Stansted Airport yesterday, the President was tweeting about his imminent visit to the UK. Launching a tirade against proudly anti-Trump London Mayor Sadiq Khan, the President reminded the world that he is in fact a Twitter troll.
So, given that Trump spends most of his time on Twitter, what should patriotic Brits send to the President, to make him feel welcome? Here are our top suggestions:
Lock him up! Looking forward to the obstruction of justice case, @realDonaldTrump
Special counsel Robert Mueller was asked to investigate Russia’s involvement in the 2016 US election, and his report recently came back with some interesting conclusions.
Although he didn’t find evidence of clear ‘collusion’ between the Trump campaign and Russia, he didn’t rule out the possibility that Trump obstructed the course of justice. Mueller didn’t make a case one way or another because he believes a sitting President can’t be charged with a federal crime. However, that doesn’t stop Trump from being prosecuted when he leaves office.
Many Democratic candidates seem keen on this idea, with Elizabeth Warren tweeting earlier this week that Trump should ‘be in handcuffs’.

Because it’s always worth reminding him.
You need to get better friends, @realDonaldTrump. Boris Johnson says you’re unfit to be President, and Farage says you make him “very uncomfortable”
Donald Trump is trying to get a gang together in the UK – lending his support to Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson. His officials are even talking up the terrifying idea of a Farage-Johnson pact.
But both Farage and Johnson haven’t always been admirers of the New York real estate fraudster. In 2015, Johnson said that Trump was “unfit to hold the office of President of the United States,” while in 2016 Farage claimed that Trump’s policies made him “very uncomfortable”.
Things might get a bit awkward in the group chat, if the President finds out…
.@realDonaldTrump: you can’t run a business, never mind a country
Trump has routinely exaggerated the value of his assets to get on rich lists and impress journalists. In reality, the President’s business career has been a staggering disappointment, punctuated by one failure after another. Notably, he even managed to crash the entire casino industry in Atlantic City.
It’s probably no wonder, then, that the author who shadow wrote Trump’s famous book, The Art of the Deal, thinks it should be re-classified as fiction.
