Facing widespread condemnation from US Allies, Donald Trump is on a charm offensive to win over his critics in the UK and prove once and for all that he has the temperament to be a world leader.
"I'm going to meet with Big Ben," the Don Tweeted, "and I think the British people are going to come around, there is no bigger supporter of England than me." Along with the tweet was a picture of Trump at his desk with some fish and chips.
Now that picture has become a meme phenomenon, mostly ridiculing Trump's superficial understanding of the world.
The next day a Trump spokesman said that his boss really does know that Big Ben is a clock and that he was just making a joke.
Trump has been widely ridiculed in the UK for his demagoguery and business practices even inspiring a petition and a parliamentary debate on banning him from the UK.
Former First Minister of Scotland Alex Salmond famously said Donald Trump "couldn't get elected the dog-catcher" in Scotland. This was after Trump's promises of jobs and economic growth failed to materialize after he destroyed a delicate ecosystem there and built a golf course in it's place.
Speaking to HBO Real Sports Salmond said, "Now Donald Trump wants to do for the US what he's done for Scotland, I pray the good people of the US do not elect a crazy man to lead their country. Donald Trump belongs in a mental hospital."
