UK foreign secretary compares Donald Trump to president Mugabe

Zimbabwe’s president Robert Mugabe

Britain’s foreign secretary Boris Johnson has suggested that Donald Trump is no worse than ageing Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe.

Johnson made the comment while defending Trump’s right to a state visit to Britain. He further said that Queen Elizabeth II has previously hosted Romanian dictator Nicolai Ceausescu and Mugabe, so could “probably cope” with Trump, The Independent reports.

Mugabe visited the UK in 1994. He received an award the Knighthood by the Queen. He was later stripped of it in 2008 following outrage over rights abuses and election violence, New24 reports.
