‘Cameron won’t say sorry for calling Trump stupid, divisive’

London, May 5 (IANS) British Prime Minister David Cameron will not apologize to US presidential hopeful Donald Trump for calling him “divisive, stupid, and wrong”, a spokesperson for 10 Downing Street has said.

Cameron made the comments after Trump called for a ban on Muslims entering the US, drawing worldwide condemnation.

Following the withdrawal of Ted Cruz and John Kasich from the race for the Republican nomination this week, Trump is now effectively the presumptive GOP candidate for the presidency.

As Trump inches closer to the White House, his advisors are putting pressure on Cameron to mend fences. On Wednesday, George Papadopoulos, a London-based foreign policy adviser to Trump, told the Times that it would be “wise” for Cameron to “reach out” to the property tycoon.

“If the prime minister is serious about reaching out, an apology or some sort of retraction should happen,” Papadopoulos said.

However, a Downing Street spokesman responded: “The prime minister has no intention of withdrawing his comments, which were made in response to comments Donald Trump made calling for a ban on Muslims entering the US.

“There will be the usual approach that happens where the government will be in contact with candidates from both of the main parties. That has happened at every US presidential election,” RT news reported.
