Trump attacks Britain's public healthcare system

Tuesday, February 06, 2018

Washington: US President Donald Trump today attacked Britain's public healthcare system in comments that are likely to call his much-delayed visit to the country further into doubt.

"The Democrats are pushing for Universal HealthCare while thousands of people are marching in the UK because their U system is going broke and not working," he wrote in an early morning tweet.

"Dems want to greatly raise taxes for really bad and non-personal medical care. No thanks!"

The tweet came after thousands of people marched through central London on Saturday in support of the National Health Service, which is straining under the weight of winter demand.

NHS staffing levels have been in crisis for months, an issue made worse by a winter flu outbreak.

Despite its current woes, the public health service, which was created after World War II, is a revered institution and Trump's comments are likely to stoke resentment.

The "special relationship" between Britain and the United States has shown some signs of strain since Trump came to office a year ago.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)The ruling emotion today will be passion. You will feel like chatting with your beloved the whole day. However, you will incur expenses and Ganesha advises you to remain balanced. But if you have decided already to go the whole hog, make fully sure you are in the right trappings. You will thereby experience love and warmth for one and all.
