Republican Presidential hopeful Donald Trump has courted much criticism for his recent remarks, stating Muslims should be banned from entering the US and that there are areas in London and Paris where police are too scared to go to due to radicalisation.
In Britain alone this sparked a wide range of responses, including a petition to ban him from the UK. In true Trump fashion, he's doubled down, saying UK politicians "should be thanking" him instead of "pandering to political correctness".

Thank you to respected columnist Katie Hopkins of Daily https://t.co/LgtY0qdv9U for her powerful writing on the U.K.'s Muslim problems.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 10, 2015

.@realDonaldTrump Glad you like Katie Hopkins. She is indeed a respected columnist, much in the way you are a respected political figure.— Dan Rebellato (@DanRebellato) December 10, 2015
@realDonaldTrump respected columnist. You've literally never heard of her.— Christopher John (@Moley1985) December 10, 2015
@realDonaldTrump she's held in about the same esteem as you, Mr Trump. Although her hair speaks less about her than yours about you.— Simon Lucas (@OnlySimonLucas) December 10, 2015
