Britain's Trump-Criticizing Foreign Secretary Vows Cooperation

Britain's new Foreign Secretary, David Lammy, has a history of criticizing former President Donald Trump, calling him a "neo-nazi-sympathizing sociopath" and participating in protests during his state visit to the UK. However, Lammy has since changed his tune, insisting that he will work with the Trump administration if he wins election in November.

Lammy, who claims to be the first black Briton to attend Harvard Law School, was appointed as Foreign Secretary on Friday after the Labour Party won a landslide victory in the country's general election. Despite winning a lower vote share than when the party lost in 2017, the Labour Party was able to secure a majority in Parliament.

Following Trump's rise to the Oval Office, Lammy vowed to "chain myself to the door of Number 10" if plans to give Trump a state visit to the United Kingdom went ahead. He later participated in protests when the event went ahead, calling Trump a "racist" and a "threat to the international order."

However, Lammy has since changed his tune, insisting that he will work with the Trump administration if he wins election in November. "It doesn't matter who is in Number 10 – you work with the United States," Lammy told Sky News back in January. "I think all backbenchers of both sides and I know that the current Foreign Secretary David Cameron described him as a misogynist and xenophobic."


Despite his past criticisms of Trump, Lammy has said that he will put aside his personal feelings and work with the Trump administration in the best interests of the UK. "If I have the privilege of becoming foreign secretary, it will be my job to represent the national interests of this country," he said.

It remains to be seen how Lammy's past criticisms of Trump will affect his ability to work with the Trump administration, should he be elected as Foreign Secretary in November. However, his willingness to put aside his personal feelings and work in the best interests of the UK is a positive sign for the future of the special relationship between the US and the UK.
