Trump’s victory ‘wake-up call for world’, says Jeremy Corbyn
Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn considers the victory of Donald Trump as a wake-up call for the world to rid politics of vested interest of billionaires.
Corbyn has said Trump’s shocking victory was driven by public anger. “Trump’s election is an unmistakable rejection of a political establishment and an economic system that simply isn’t working for most people,” Corbyn said.
“Instead of offering real solutions or the resources to make them work, he offered only someone to blame – everyone, that is, apart from those who are actually responsible for a broken economy and a failed political system,” he added.
Corbyn has accused the US President-elect that instead of giving the solutions for the genuine fears of the people who feel left behind the economic change of globalisation, Trump had shifted the blame to other sections of society.
Jeremy Corbyn will express his position on the Brexit referendum and emerging UK-US ties in his speech to the Labour south-east regional conference on Saturday.
“We won’t tackle the damage done by elite globalisation just by leaving the EU,” Corbyn will say in Labour conference.
