Donald Trump will create an "inward-looking US" warned Tulip Siddiq
The controversial businessman was today inaugurated as America’s 45th president in Washington D.C.
President Trump, whose late mother was Scottish, has spoken of his “love” for Britain since being elected to the White House.
The billionaire, who predicted last summer’s Brexit vote, has also sounded bullish about the prospect of a US-UK free trade deal once Britain completes its departure from the EU, while his business empire includes two Scottish golf courses.
But Labour MP Tulip Siddiq warned President Trump’s warm words about the UK would only last as long as it is in his personal interest.
She told Express.co.uk: “President Trump will be a challenge to those in Britain who wish to deal with him.
“Notwithstanding his record of racism, sexism and mocking the disabled, in seeking a vital trade agreement with America, Britain can also expect a two-faced operator who speaks well about the Queen and his British golf courses, but will ultimately put his own interests first.
“I hope I am proved wrong.”

The Hampstead and Kilburn MP, who previously called for President Trump to be excluded from the UK after he proposed a ban on all Muslims entering the US, also suggested America would quickly retreat from the international community during his first few weeks in office.
She said: “I expect Donald Trump’s first 100 days will focus on dismantling former President Barack Obama’s commitment to expanding healthcare, protecting the environment, and building international cooperation.

“His threats to American companies that outsource jobs, and his commitment to scrapping humanitarian treaties, mean we are likely to see a much more protectionist, inward-looking US.”
