Union boss brands Donald Trump ‘a vicious bigot’

Unison leader Dave Prentis vowed to lead protests if the US president visits the UK.

A union leader has branded President Donald Trump a “vicious bigot” and vowed that health workers will lead protests if he ever visits the UK.

Dave Prentis, general secretary of Unison said it was “heartening” to see opposition to the US president’s “sexism and racism”.

He told Unison’s annual health conference in Brighton it was “great” that a UK visit had been postponed.

He said: “We know the real reason that vicious bigot abandoned his plans, he would have faced us at the airport and on the streets.

“Let me promise you this, if Donald Trump ever visits this country bringing his ignorance, malice spite and hatred, be in no doubt, we won’t just be on the protests, we will be leading them.”
