Britain’s Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Sunday he would take US Republican candidate Donald Trump to a mosque if he came to the UK.

“I would invite Donald Trump along to a mosque if he came to the UK,” Corbyn said while speaking on BBC’s Andrew Marr Show.

Speaking about how he feels about Trump’s proposal to bar Muslims from entering the United States, the Labour Party leader said, “I think Donald Trump has some weird and off the wall views.”

Donald Trump calls for barring Muslims from entering US

Regarding the upcoming debate in the congress about whether Donald Trump should be banned from entering Britain, Corbyn said people shouldn’t be banned from coming to the country. “I think he should come here and visit all our cities” he added, suggesting that Trump should visit Leicester, Newcastle or Birmingham and take a walk around central Manchester and see the great diversity in the British society.

“Yes, we’ve got problems in Britain, but we’ve also got a great community, great society and great cohesion. He might learn something, you never know,” he said.

In December last year, the Republican presidential frontrunner called for a “total and complete” block on Muslims entering the United States. Although, Trump has stood by his proposal, senior White House officials in response have lined up to condemn Trump’s proposal saying it is contrary to US values and interests.
