LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Theresa May thinks the language used by U.S. President Donald Trump in a series of tweets on Sunday about a group of mostly American-born Democratic congresswomen was “completely unacceptable”, her spokesman said on Monday.

Trump on Sunday told the group to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came”, a comment that was condemned by Democrats as racist.

“The prime minister’s view is that the language used to refer to these women was completely unacceptable,” the spokesman said.
