Union boss brands Donald Trump 'a vicious bigot'

He told Unison's annual health conference in Brighton it was "great" that a UK visit had been postponed.

He said: "We know the real reason that vicious bigot abandoned his plans, he would have faced us at the airport and on the streets.

"Let me promise you this, if Donald Trump ever visits this country bringing his ignorance, malice spite and hatred, be in no doubt, we won't just be on the protests, we will be leading them."
