UK health system ‘not working’ – Trump
The US president’s comments came in a row over the American healthcare system.
Donald Trump has hit out at the NHS, claiming it is “going broke and not working”.
The US president made the attack as he targeted Democrats pushing for a British-style universal health system.
He said “thousands of people are marching” in the UK because of concerns about the state of the NHS.
The Democrats are pushing for Universal HealthCare while thousands of people are marching in the UK because their U system is going broke and not working. Dems want to greatly raise taxes for really bad and non-personal medical care. No thanks!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 5, 2018
Mr Trump’s message on Twitter came after a crowd of thousands chanting “Save the NHS” descended on Downing Street on Saturday to demand more funding for the health service.
Marching through central London to draw attention to the NHS funding shortage, people carried placards urging “Kick the Tories out” and “More staff, more beds, more funds”.
The demonstration, called NHS In Crisis: Fix It Now, was organised by the People’s Assembly and Health Campaigns Together.
