New elitist attack on Jeremy Corbyn acts as the best possible endorsement

Jeremy Corbyn and Donald Trump

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.

Corbyn soon responded to Trump’s comments, saying:

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 need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
