Donald Trump hit with British backlash after saying the NHS is not working

Donald Trump has triggered another extraordinary spat with the British government after criticising that most beloved of institutions – the NHS.

In a tweet on Monday, the US president said: “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 made the comments as he targeted Democrats for pushing for a British-style universal health system.

The reference to “thousands of people marching” referred to a protest on Saturday in which supporters of the NHS were demonstrating against cuts to the service.

Organisers immediately hit back at Mr Trump, branding his statement “divisive and incorrect rhetoric”.

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt also responded, saying he was “proud” of the British system despite the “challenges” it faced.

Mr Hunt added that no one protesting about the state of the NHS wanted a US-style system.

“NHS may have challenges but I’m proud to be from the country that invented universal coverage – where all get care no matter the size of their bank balance,” he said.p>
