Mark Drakeford says Donald Trump should be respected despite ”deeply distasteful” views

First Minister Mark Drakeford has described Donald Trump’s visit to the UK as an important one despite the President’s ”deeply distasteful” views.

Speaking at a press conference the First Minister said the office of President should be respected because of the democracy it represents.

Drakeford was also asked if he agreed with London Mayor Sadiq Khan branding the President’s language as ”fascist.”

The First Minister said Donald Trump ”strayed too often into language which is provocative.”

The US President began a three day state visit with a visit to Prince Charles and the Queen.

On Sunday, a protest was held in Cardiff against the visit.
