SOUTH Cumbrian MPs have shared their thoughts on President Trump’s time as leader of the United States.

Both Theresa May and then Boris Johnson sought to keep close ties with the White House, but it was easier said than done at times.

Hector Ramirez said: “Trump’s character had much to be desired, and he did not use his words as well as he should have. But he followed through with his policies. The very policy millions of people voted for.”

Dan Wolfton said: “Don’t forget. Donald Trump’s presidency was the first four-year term in office without a new war since Eisenhower in the 1950s.”

Donnie Ladden said: “I thought his first 18 months were terrific. However, his misuse of social media and failure to grasp the virus were his downfall. He will leave a legacy which the American establishment will have to accept. I don’t think we have heard the last of him. The king is dead.”

Norman Farmer said: “I can’t believe Biden is getting away with stealing the election.”

Simon Pantheon said: “Financially, Trump was good for the Americans, but he simply failed to tackle factions such as Antifa and BLM. As for Sleepy Joe, I hope they’re ready for what they wanted. Anyway, it’s done. Let’s see what the next 4 years holds I doubt Biden will see it out though.”

Sarah Stacks said: “He was a racist, a bigot, a homophobe and a sexist. Good riddance to him.”

Jeremy Hazburk said: “His policies were some of the best America has had in a very long time. Economically America was succeeding, he never went to war, he brought North Korea to the table, he improved Black employment and gave millions of Americans a voice for the first time in years. America will wish they kept him soon enough.”

Colin Towns said: “Biden was a mistake. His policies will rely on mass borrowing or increasing taxes, as well as excerpting huge Government intervention which too often goes wrong.”
