In a radio interview with Nigel Farage, Donald Trump has launched a desperate attack on Jeremy Corbyn. And it serves as a perfect endorsement for the Labour leader.

You know you’re doing something right when Trump doesn’t like you

Speaking to Farage on LBC, Trump argued that:

Corbyn would be so bad for your country – he’d be so bad. He’d take you in such a bad way. He’d take you into such bad places.

Talking about Boris Johnson, meanwhile, he said:

he’s a fantastic man, and I think he’s the exact right guy for the times.

Earlier on, Corbyn had tweeted:

A perfect endorsement

Many people on Twitter pointed out that this could hardly be a better endorsement for Corbyn, considering how terrible Trump is:

Kicking off Labour’s campaign on the same day, meanwhile, Corbyn said the election would be a clear battle between the people and the “elites” allied with Johnson. And he hit out at “tax dodgers, bad bosses, big polluters, and billionaire-owned media holding our country back”, calling out specific elitist figures by name. There were also chants of “not for sale” as he pledged to protect the NHS from a post-Brexit trade deal between the Conservatives and Trump. Corbyn clarified:

We stand for the many. Boris Johnson’s born-to-rule Conservatives protect the privileged few. They’ve slashed taxes for the richest and vital services and support for everyone else.

With this in mind, no one should be at all surprised that Trump fears Corbyn. And the fact that the Labour leader will not bow down to elitists like Trump and Johnson is the perfect endorsement – and the perfect reason to make him prime minister.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
