Theresa May is facing calls for her resignation as Prime Minister. As leaders of the EU and the world joined in condemnation of President Trump’s dangerous policies, the UK Prime Minister was quite literally holding his hand. In doing so, she disgraced Britain in front of the entire world, and she has no place in Number 10 Downing Street.

Theresa May, Trump, and the transatlantic love affair

Theresa May arrived in the US last week, the first foreign leader to meet the new US President. But only because other world leaders are keeping their distance. May gave a speech to the Republican Congressional Retreat so fawning of the American President that one Congressman inquired as to whether she was Trump’s long-lost sister.

Further embarrassment came at a joint press conference. May once again saluted a President who has made repeated racist, sexist and otherwise indecent comments, and is now turning them into domestic policy. She also stated that the President had been invited to make a full state visit to Britain later in the year.

The BBC‘s Laura Kuenssberg was left to serve as the voice of Britain. Kuenssberg left the President visibly rattled after putting forward concerns over his plans for a border wall with Mexico and a ban on Muslim immigrants.

Later, images were released of the Prime Minister walking hand-in-hand with the US President on a tour of the White House.

Despite all this, not a single US newspaper put May’s visit on the front page. She also walked away without the much-lauded trade deal. It was a manifest and humiliating failure.

The Muslim ban

President Trump’s Muslim ban went into effect the very next day. The President’s Executive Order bans entry to the US for citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries. The ban has affected those with green cards. Even those who have been resident in the US for decades will be banned from returning home from foreign holidays.

The list of banned countries includes Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and several other countries the US is actively engaged in bombing at the moment. Leading to accusations that America is happy to make the mess, but not to clean it up. It is also worth noting that there has not been a single terror attack committed on US soil by a refugee.

Conversely, Saudi Arabia is not on the list, despite being the home of all 19 hijackers on 9/11.

Muslims returning home from holidays, or making their first trip to the US having secured a visa, found themselves interned at US airports on Saturday 28 January. They included a 5-year-old Iranian boy who was detained for hours without a guardian present, and an Iraqi interpreter who helped US forces during the invasion of Iraq.


Across the US, thousands of citizens rallied at airports to call for the release of those interned by Trump’s Executive Order.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued Donald Trump over the ban and sent lawyers to represent the interned. Americans have now donated over $19m to the ACLU to support their efforts.

While a federal judge has been able to stay Trump’s order for now, there is no guarantee of what happens at the next stage. Some border agents have also ignored the federal court order.

Britain says no

Condemnation of the ban began to pour in from concerned leaders around the world. Theresa May, meanwhile, was in Turkey, attempting to secure a trade deal with another world leader in the throes of becoming a dictator. President Erdoğan is rapidly dismantling Turkey’s secular democracy in favour of an authoritarian system. He has been jailing civic leaders, journalists, and other opponents.

While cheering an arms deal with the tyrant at a new press conference in Turkey, May repeatedly refused to condemn the US President for his Muslim ban.

The response was swift and furious at home, with people calling on Theresa May to either change her position or resign.

More than a million people and counting have signed a petition calling for President Trump’s state visit to be cancelled. MPs from all parties have joined the call.


They think it’s all over…

The leaders of France, Germany, Canada, Mexico and elsewhere have condemned Donald Trump’s Muslim ban in no uncertain terms. In fact, sports company Nike put out a stronger statement of condemnation on behalf of athlete Mo Farah, who was facing being unable to return to his family in Oregon.

Against this backdrop, the Prime Minister is being derided on social media as Theresa The Appeaser, and Appeaser May.

Theresa May has disgraced Britain before the entire world. She has no place in Number 10 Downing Street.

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.
