Donald Trump is a danger to the world, says Jeremy Corbyn

‘The US is the strongest military power on the planet by a very long way. It has a special responsibility to use its power with care and to support international efforts to resolve conflicts collectively and peacefully,’ Mr Corbyn said

Donald Trump risks making the world a more dangerous place, Jeremy Corbyn has said, as he cited the US President’s increasingly hard-line rhetoric in relation to North Korea.

In a major speech on foreign policy, the Labour leader said the US President appeared determined to add to existing global dangers “by recklessly escalating the confrontation” with Kim Jong-un’s dictatorship on the Korean peninsula and unilaterally launching a missile strike on Syria.
