Even though Donald Trump has been a polarizing figure in the United States, the rest of the word seems united in their thinking that the New York billionaire is a dangerous buffoon.

As Nico Hines of The Daily Beast wrote earlier this year,“From China and Afghanistan to Turkey and Britain, human beings watching the U.S. appear to finally agree on one single issue: The GOP frontrunner is a frightening, loathsome candidate.”

On Monday, the presumptive Republican nominee did nothing to quell those fears when he went after David Cameron, the British prime minister and close partner of the United States.

In an interview with Britain’s ITV television station, Trump said, “It looks like we’re not going to have a very good relationship, who knows?” 

The spray-tanned billionaire’s answer was a response to Prime Minister Cameron’s previous comments calling the presumptive nominee’s proposed Muslim ban “divisive, stupid and wrong.”

In the same interview, Trump hilariously added, “I’m not stupid, okay? I can tell you that right now. Just the opposite.”

While Cameron has said he is committed to working with whoever becomes the next POTUS, a PM spokesperson said, “[David Cameron] continues to believe that preventing Muslims from entering the U.S. is divisive, stupid and wrong. He stands by his comments.” 

Cameron isn’t the only British figure that has taken aim at Trump lately. Newly elected London Mayor Sadiq Khan also slammed Trump for his inflammatory campaign rhetoric.

“Donald Trump’s ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe — it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of the extremists,” Khan said.

London’s mayor added that he will be supporting Hillary Clinton for president and hopes “she trounces him.”

Trump, always classy and mature, responded to Khan by challenging him to an IQ test.

America’s relationship with Britain remains as close as it ever has been, but Trump’s latest childish feud with the top U.S. ally shows how that could change if he becomes president.
