With the realization that GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump could very well end up in the White House, some world leaders might need to reassess their opinions of the New York businessman, and possibly try to establish some sort of amiable relationship with him.
British Prime Minister David Cameron is one of those leaders, and he appeared to be reconsidering his previous views about Trump. Cameron said in an interview on ITV’s “Peston on Sunday” that he would meet with Trump should he visit the U.K. before the election.
“American presidential candidates have made a habit of coming through the U.K., and so if that happens I’d be very happy” to meet Trump, Cameron said.
Late last year, Cameron said Trump’s remarks about a temporary ban on Muslims entering America were “divisive, stupid and wrong,” not to mention dangerous.
Trump’s response to Cameron’s statements were that the two might not have the best relationship.
Not exactly what you would call a great start.
However, things change, and Cameron’s change of heart might be indicative of him facing reality.
This isn’t the first time Cameron has expressed a more positive outlook for Trump since his initial remarks. Earlier this month, he said Trump deserved a certain amount of respect despite the political and philosophical differences the two men have.
Trump, too, has appeared to retract previous negative sentiments, saying he expected have “a good relationship” with Cameron if he wins the presidency.
It seems some world leaders (not to mention the rest of the world) are coming to terms with the fact that a Trump presidency isn’t the far-fetched idea it was almost a year ago. In fact, it is a very real possibility that should have some of them a little worried.
