Jeremy Corbyn says Donald Trump win is ‘unmistakable rejection of establishment’ as Theresa May congratulates new US president

By 

Theresa May has congratulated Donald Trump on being elected as the 45th president of the USA, promising to remain “strong and close partners”.

In a statement she said: “I would like to congratulate Donald Trump on being elected the next President of the United States, following a hard-fought campaign.

“Britain and the United States have an enduring and special relationship based on the values of freedom, democracy and enterprise.

“We are, and will remain, strong and close partners on trade, security and defence.

“I look forward to working with President-elect Donald Trump, building on these ties to ensure the security and prosperity of our nations in the years ahead.”

The statement came as Number 10 sources described as “nonsense” claims that the head of MI5 has gone in for an emergency meeting, insisting it was a long-scheduled meeting and that he always uses the back door.

Meanwhile, described Mr Trump’s victory as “an unmistakable rejection of political establishment”.

Ukip leader Nigel Farage – who went to the US to appear at a Trump campaign rally – said he was handing over his mantle as the creator of political earthquakes to the new President, saying that 2016 was “the year of two great political revolutions”, adding: “I thought Brexit was big, but boy, this looks like it’s going to be even bigger”.

Nigel Farage has issued this statement following Donald Trump’s victory.

“Today, the establishment is in deep shock. Even more so than after Brexit.  What we are witnessing is the end of a period of big business and big politics controlling our lives.

Voters across the Western world want nation state democracy, proper border controls and to be in charge of their own lives.

I commend Donald Trump for the courage with which he has fought this campaign and I look forward to a closer relationship between the USA and the UK.  We now have a President who likes our country and understands our post-Brexit values.

Prepare for further political shocks in the years to come.”

May: ‘Yes, Trump is fit to be president’

In a televised clip recorded in Downing Street, Theresa May was asked if Donald Trump was a fit person to be president and someone she could work with.

She responded: “Yes, I look forward to working with president-elect Trump. The American people have elected him as the next President of the United States.

“I look forward to building on the special relationship of our two countries.”

‘Let’s stand up for what we believe’

In an indirect Facebook statement about Donald Trump’s victory, Labour MP Stella Creasy said: “We can either cower in despair alone or stand up together in dignity for what we believe and work for a better world.

“You may feel angry, want someone to blame, just to make it stop but the difficult reality is that leaving this to someone else or shouting at each other will achieve little.”

Implicitly reflecting on Brexit, the pro-remain campaigner said this year had “set out a generational challenge to everything we thought was ahead for ourselves and our families”.

Invite for Trump to meet the Queen on the cards

The Queen has met every American leader of her reign so far except one – Lyndon B Johnson – so a future invite for Donald Trump will be on the cards.

The president-elect could even be treated to a grand state visit to the UK – which would see the controversial billionaire and new First Lady Melania Trump staying in the Queen’s London residence Buckingham Palace or at her much-loved home Windsor Castle.

Mr Trump will be expected to have a general meeting, audience or tea with the monarch – just like many of his predecessors – at some stage.

But whether or not he will be feted with a state visit – which comes with the pomp and pageantry of a ceremonial welcome and an opulent state banquet – is not down to the Queen.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “Invitations for state visits are extended on the advice of Government.”

Ukippers welcome Donald Trump’s victory

Ukip leadership contenders Paul Nuttall, Suzanne Evans and John Rees-Evans all offered their congratulations to Mr Trump.

“His acceptance speech was a measured call for unity,” said Mr Nuttall. “Bodes well for the future.”

Mr Rees-Evans hailed “cictory for the ordinary American over corrupt elite. A great day for US-British relations”.

Ukip MP Douglas Carswell said that, rather than being the fascist he was painted as by some of his opponents, Mr Trump had won by combining policies from left and right of the political spectrum.

His calls for infrastructure spending to boost jobs recalled Democrat president Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal while his tough stance on immigration appealed to Republicans, said the Clacton MP.

“The irony is that, after years of gridlock between the president and Congress, it could be the man Democrats despise more than any other who enables bipartisanship,” said Mr Carswell.

“With Trump in the White House, Republicans in Congress may end up backing a big-government agenda similar to the one they have trenchantly opposed for much of the last eight years.

“That may not solve America’s problems. But it could mean Democrats end up getting what they want. So, not for the first time, maybe the leftist mass hysteria is overkill.”

MEP David Coburn, the leader of Ukip in Scotland, said: “The American people by electing Donald Trump have followed the British people in telling the political and media classes that they have had enough. They are sick of open-door immigration, high taxes and lower public services.

“Sadly, the Scottish nationalist government have done their best to upset president-elect Trump and the business he was bringing to Scotland.

“I will do my best to help President Trump – who is half Scottish – to bring jobs to Scotland.”

Piers Corbyn compares Trump victory to his brother Jeremy

This is a statement from Piers, the brother of Jeremy Corbyn:

“Whatever you may have heard or feel about Donald Trump his election is an amazing revolution and vote of no-confidence against the corrupt self-serving political establishment bubble, mainstream media and opinion manipulators in the USA and the world. The result will lead to tremendous changes which will defy and out-date the norms of today’s tired and failing elites and methods.

This election is strangely reminiscent of my brother, Jeremy Corbyn’s, epic victories in Labour – on many different policies but nevertheless against the establishment bubble. Incidentally I predicted both these victories months ahead and will shortly collect bet winnings from William Hill for Trump’s win.”

“It’s not the result I wanted but we now have to hope that President Trump turns out to be a different man to candidate Trump.

Mr Trump tapped into the disaffection we are seeing across the world right now due to economic uncertainty. That’s not something we can ignore.

Those of us who believe open, western values are the best way to provide economic security for people now have to redouble our efforts to show they deliver for people.”

Sturgeon: ‘This is not the outcome I hoped for’

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, who backed Hillary Clinton a couple of days ago, says:

“While this is not the outcome I hoped for, it is the verdict of the American people and we must respect it. I congratulate president-elect Trump on winning the election.

We value our relationship with the United States and its people.  The ties that bind Scotland and the US – of family, culture and business – are deep and longstanding and they will always endure.

It is normal in any election for those on the losing side to be feel disappointment, but today, many in America and across the world, will also feel a real sense of anxiety. I hope the president-elect will take the opportunity to reach out to those who felt marginalized by his campaign and make clear – in deeds as well as words – that he will be a president for everyone in modern, multicultural America.

Today must also be a moment for those who share progressive values – all of us who believe in tolerance and diversity – to speak up loudly and clearly for the values we hold dear.

I also want to pay tribute to Hillary Clinton. While I am personally disappointed that she will not be America’s first woman president, her candidacy represented a major step forward for women in America and across the world – for that, as well as for her many years of public service, she is owed a deep debt of gratitude.”

Corbyn: ‘Trump is an unmistakable rejection of political establishment’

Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader, says Donald Trump’s victory is “an unmistakable rejection” of the political establishment.

Jeremy Corbyn
Jeremy Corbyn

“Many in Britain and elsewhere will be understandably shocked by Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential election, the rhetoric around it and what the election result means for the rest of the world, as well as America.

Trump’s election is an unmistakable rejection of a political establishment and an economic system that simply isn’t working for most people. It is one that has delivered escalating inequality and stagnating or falling living standards for the majority, both in the US and Britain.

This is a rejection of a failed economic consensus and a governing elite that has been seen not to have listened. And the public anger that has propelled Donald Trump to office has been reflected in political upheavals across the world.

But some of Trump’s answers to the big questions facing America, and the divisive rhetoric around them, are clearly wrong.

I have no doubt, however, that the decency and common sense of the American people will prevail, and we send our solidarity to a nation of migrants, innovators and democrats.

After this latest global wake up call, the need for a real alternative to a failed economic and political system could not be clearer.

That alternative must be based on working together, social justice and economic renewal, rather than sowing fear and division. And the solutions we offer have to improve the lives of everyone, not pit one group of people against another.

Americans have made their choice. The urgent necessity is now for us all to work across continents to tackle our common global challenges: to secure peace, take action on climate change and deliver economic prosperity and justice.”

What Theresa May said about Donald Trump just days ago

It was only a few days ago that Theresa May had issued a thinly veiled attack on Donald Trump’s campaign.

“I take a simple view about the way in which I like to see campaigns being conducted.

I like them to be conducted in a calm and measured way with proper consideration of the issues.

As for the result of the election, it’s up to the American people and we will know that very soon.”

‘Trump victory could strengthen Special Relationship’

Sir Peter Westmacott, former British ambassador to the US, says Donald Trump’s win is a chance to strengthen the Special Relationship between the US and Britain.

“He said this was going to be Brexit plus plus plus. I think in his mind he has Britain. He has got a lot of friends here and he knows the country well,” he tells Sky News.

Sir Peter says Mr Trump’s foreign policies are somewhat different to Britain’s, adding that the UK will have to remain “resolute”. He says all eyes will now be on who Mr Trump appoints to his key positions.

Tim Farron: ‘America, you’re welcome to Farage’

Speaking at the US Embassy in London, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron says people voting for Trump were throwing a big rock at the establishment.

‘America, you’re welcome to Farage’: Tim FarronPlay!01:04

“Liberal values of moderation, freedom, respect for the rule of law, openness and concern for one another can no longer be taken for granted. In the United States last night, those values were defeated.

But those values are vital if we are to live together in peace, prosperity and freedom.

Those of us who care passionately for those liberal values need to fight for them, to win the arguments, to inspire new generations to the great and historic cause of liberalism. Never in my lifetime have those liberal values been so under threat, and never have they been more relevant and necessary.

There is nothing inevitable about the rise of nationalism, protectionism  and division, Justin Trudeau proves that. I am determined that together, we must make it our mission to build that liberal cause. The alternatives are unthinkable.”

Bookmaker counts cost of Trump win

Paddy Power, the bookmaker who paid out over £800,000 early to its customers who backed Hillary Clinton, were left counting the cost of their decision today after Donald Trump upset the odds to win the US Presidential election.

The result also stung Paddy Power for its biggest political payout ever with the bookie been hit for over £4 million by customers who backed Trump.

After Donald Trump was hit with scandal after scandal the bookie was confident of Hillary’s chances – prompting the whopping payout. But Clinton’s campaign took a late hit thanks to the reopened FBI investigation which resulted in a huge surge in bets for The Donald.

Lewis Davey, a spokesperson for Paddy Power, said: “We’re in the business of making predictions and decided to put our neck on the line by paying out early on Hillary Clinton, but boy did we get it wrong. We’ve been well and truly thumped by Trump with his victory leaving us with the biggest political payout in the company’s history and some very, very expensive egg on our faces.”

Anti-racism protest planned for London embassy

Anti-racist protesters are to stage a demonstration outside the US Embassy in London following the shock election victory of Donald Trump.

Activists accused the President-elect of having a long history of “racist outbursts” as well as his promise to build a wall between the US and Mexico.

Sabby Dhalu, co-convener of the Stand up to Racism group, said: “Donald Trump used the oldest trick in the book – he stirred up fear and racism in the context of a stagnant economy and the resulting fall in living standards – to mobilise a vote for him.

“The danger now is racists across the globe feel emboldened by Donald Trump’s victory and racism and sexism become normalised through the most powerful figure in the world.

“We call on anti-racists and all progressives to join us tonight outside the US Embassy.”

9:03am

How the US Embassy in London reacted

The Republican Party now has the “enormous responsibility” of working to bring the United States together, members said after Donald Trump’s election as President.

Malise Sundstrom, chairwoman of Republicans Overseas, said she had not expected the result but that her and other members of the group in London were feeling “very good”.

As Mr Trump delivered his victory speech across the Atlantic, she said: “I think we need to cheer the other side up – it is a very emotional time, it is a very uncertain time.

“It’s hard to be a Republican in London, so I think it is up to us to kind of explain how this has come to light – it is up to us to now bring the country together, it is an enormous responsibility.”

The 32-year-old said a Trump presidency was not going to be “as bad as everyone says”, adding: “One man, one party, one country … it’s not going to be the end of the world, I promise.”

She went on: “A lot of people in the exit polls said that they wanted change. I don’t think Clinton was very wise to run as Obama for a third term when the people clearly want change.

“We are voting for positives and for vision and for a clear message. What we saw was Hillary Clinton trying to please everyone and divide people, and a very overwhelming message from Donald Trump and a clear vision on a number of fronts, and that’s something that people could buy into.

“For him to receive this kind of turnout, and the support he’s getting, is really incredible.”

Ms Sundstrom said earlier on Wednesday morning she had been feeling “isolated but optimistic” at the election-night party at the US embassy in London, which saw a largely Democrat-supporting turnout.

More than 1,000 diplomats and ex-pats came to party away the night at the embassy, which had stars projected onto its roof and was lit in the colours of the American flag.

London mayor Sadiq Khan, Justice Secretary Liz Truss and Jeremy Paxman were just some of the notable faces at the American-themed bash. The Fall star Gillian Anderson, comedian Jimmy Carr and Labour MP Tristram Hunt were also spotted.

Towards the end of the night most of the crowd sat largely silent as projections emerged that Mr Trump had won the key battleground states he needed.

The party started winding down before it was clear which side had won, though some Democrat voters were already predicting it was “game over” for Hillary Clinton.

Farage: Trump’s election ‘massive result’ for Britain

Steven Swinford, deputy political editor, reports:

Nigel Farage, the Ukip leader, has told The Telegraph that Mr Trump’s election will represent a “massive result” for Britain.

He said that the UK would have a “friend in the White house” who will prioritise trade relations with the UK.

He will travel to the US to meet with Mr Trump and his team, but refused to say whether he wants a formal role in the administration.

“There will be some celebrations I expect,” he said. “I know most of his team his team very well, many of them are my friends.”

He said: “This is a massive result as far as Britain is concerned with have a friend in the White House, admires our culture, feels his mothers Scottish roots very deeply and wants to put us at the front of the queue for trade deals.”

He admitted that Britain will have to persuade Mr Trump to back Nato, but added: “We can build a very important bridge with Nato. He is asking very important questions about why some members aren’t pulling their weight.”

He said that Britain should not be “afraid” of Mr Trump. He said:” Do you know what we just rejected a hawk, a neo-con in favour of someone who wants to talk to Mr Putin, who wants jaw-jaw not war-war. This guy is not a military hawk. ”

“It’s good news for all of us in the Western World who believe in nation-state democracy.”

He said that the political establishment in Britain has made a “huge mistake” by failing to take Mr Trump seriously.

He said: “It seems to me the only people in Britain who know him are Piers Morgan and myself.

“I think we are seeing a sea-change in politics and not before time in my view. I was in London tonight but I shall be in America later in the week.”

Hopes dashed for Democrats in London

British-based Democrats have said the US election result is so far not the one they were hoping for as projections put Donald Trump ahead of Hillary Clinton in a number of key states.

At around 3am on Wednesday, the swing states of Florida, Ohio and North Carolina showed the Republican in front of the Democrat as the race for the Oval Office began to heat up.

Packing out a sports bar in London’s Marylebone more than 500 people gathered to watch the results roll in at the Democrats Abroad UK (DAUK) election party – with many staying well into the small hours.

Former DAUK deputy chairwoman, Karin Robinson, said despite projections the race was certainly not yet over.

She told the Press Association: “Democratic counties report later, the places where our votes are we haven’t seen them come in yet – so it’s really, really hard to say what’s happening.

“This so far isn’t the result we were hoping for, but there are still a lot of votes to count – and we haven’t yet accounted for the turnout.”

She added: “Everything is still very much in the air.”

Attendees took to the spirit of the election party and wore outfits ranging from Wonder Woman, to a sequinned Stars and Stripes waistcoat, as well as Hillary T-shirts, and stickers telling others where they had voted.

Joan Cole, who wore a sombrero in reference to the Republican nominee’s pledge to build a wall along the American border with Mexico, spent four hours handcrafting a banner bearing the words “humpty Trumpty sat on a wall” and “adios Trump” for the event.

As the hours ticked away the atmosphere switched between jubilation and concern as voting figures continued to change throughout the night.

6:33am

Farage: ‘This is bigger than Brexit’

Acting Ukip leader Nigel Farage says the election of Donald Trump as US president will be “bigger than Brexit”.

Mr Farage, who is watching the results at the US embassy in London, said 2016 could be the “the year of two great political revolutions”.

He added that he was not surprised by how well Mr Trump was doing because “the political class is reviled across much of the West”.
