Emily Thornberry, U.K. shadow foreign secretary | Ian Forsyth/Getty Images Emily Thornberry: Trump is a ‘sexual predator’ and ‘racist’ ‘A state visit is an honor, and we don’t think that this president deserves an honor,’ says UK shadow foreign secretary. U.S. President Donald Trump "is a sexual predator" and "a racist," and "it's right to say that," according to U.K.

Speaking to the BBC's "Today" radio program about Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn's decision to boycott Trump's U.K. state visit this week and instead address an anti-Trump protest rally, Thornberry said it is the appropriate response to the American president.

"A state visit is an honor, and we don’t think that this president deserves an honor," Thornberry said.

"He is a sexual predator, he is a racist, and it’s right to say that.

And I think we need to think about when is it that our country got so scared.

The shadow Cabinet minister said it's time for the U.K. to stand up to Trump. »
