US President Donald Trump is “no longer the moral leader of his country or the world”, the human rights watchdog, the Council of Europe, said Wednesday amid global outrage over the White House’s policy of separating migrant children from their parents.
“What is happening at the (US-Mexico) border where he (Trump) is separating children from their parents is a sign that he is no longer the moral leader of his country or the world,” the Council of Europe’s secretary general, Thorbjorn Jagland, told Norwegian broadcaster TV2.
“Everything he does excludes him from the role American presidents have always had,” Jagland said during a trip to Moscow.
“He can not speak on behalf of the so-called free world.”
Just one more pipe dream that Trump can kiss goodbye.
