Donald Trump sparks fury posing arrogantly in Winston Churchill’s armchair

Donald Trump sparks fury posing arrogantly in an armchair used by heroic wartime leader Winston Churchill.

Critics slammed Trump for a string of diplomatic blunders and said he wasn’t fit to sit there.

The US president belittled our NHS and PM and undermined the special relationship.

Labour’s Stephen Doughty said: “An image of Donald Trump sitting in Churchill’s seat will stick in the throats of many Brits who would consider Trump not only to be one of the worst presidents in US history but also not even worthy of a comparison with our wartime leader who rescued our nation in its darkest hour.”

Labour’s Ruth Smeeth added: “Churchill embodied the best of British spirit when we were fighting and defeating racists and fascists during World War Two.

“Given Trump’s appalling actions and rhetoric, he doesn’t even deserve to look at a statue of Churchill let alone sit in his seat.”

The visit has been planned to maximise links to Churchill because of the president’s admiration for him.

Blenheim Palace was chosen to host Mr Trump and wife Melania because it is Churchill’s birthplace.

Whitehouse press officer Sarah Huckabee Sanders posted the picture of her boss sitting in the armchair at Chequers.
