Highlighting a newspaper story on supporters of US Presidential candidate Donald Trump, Aaron said: “I was in the States this summer and listening to stories of this guy demeaning Muslims, demeaning war veterans, demeaning pretty much every section of society you can think of.

“It’s unbelievable that he still has supporters. It highlights what a poor state the politics of America is in and it’s really quite frightening that somebody like this man could become the most powerful person in the world.”
