Chelsea Clinton says Trump "downgrades what it means to be an American," says Brits should protest his trip to Britain



During a lengthy interview to promote her latest book, Chelsea Clinton said President Trump "demeaned what it means to be an American" and said she would protest his July visit to Britain if she did Briton would be.

The former first daughter, who just published "She Persisted Around the World", accused the Trump government of "hating the streets" and reported an increase in hate crimes – such as organizations such as the Southern Poverty Law Center and the FBI.

"Not just the hundreds, but now thousands of instances in schools across America, where children cite the president for humiliating a little girl, or they sing 'wall building' in a try brown kids to degrade and degrade, "she told the Guardian.

Trump made the construction of a wall on America's southern border a cornerstone of his presidential campaign in 201

6, and despite the fact that it was host to comedic lining for the late-night talk show – the Wall is being built.

Asked by the Guardian how the British should react to Trump's planned visit in July, Clinton referred to her children and said: "Well, I've protested several times since the election."
