British Prime Minister David Cameron says he’d be happy to meet Donald Trump if he becomes the Republican presidential candidate.
But the British leader repeats his claim that Trump’s proposal for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States is “wrong and divisive.”
Cameron says it was “a very dangerous thing to say” because it makes no distinction between the peaceful Muslim majority and a minority of extremists.
Trump said last week that he was “not going to have a very good relationship” with Cameron, who had previously called Trump’s proposal “divisive, stupid and wrong.”
Asked on ITV’s “Peston on Sunday” show if he’d meet Trump, Cameron says: “American presidential candidates have made a habit of coming through Europe and through the U.K., and if that happens I’d be very happy to,” he says.
