The English Democrats nomination says he is impressed with how Trump has started his presidency.
Stephen Goldspink, former councillor and deputy council leader in Peterborough, is the English Democrats’ mayoral candidate for the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority mayoral elections to be held in May.
Stephen Goldspink says that if he is elected as Mayor of Cambridgeshire he will issue an invitation to Donald Trump to make an official visit to Cambridge and Peterborough during his June State visit.
The mayoral hopeful is impressed with Donald Trump, along with many other Cambridgeshire residents, he said.
Hundreds of protesters joined on King’s Parade this week to speak out against Trump and his ‘Muslim ban’.
If elected, Stephen Goldspink says he would use all the facilities available to the elected mayor to officially welcome President Donald Trump and make his visit to Cambridgeahire and Peterborough ‘as grand and as memorable an occasion as possible’.
Stephen Goldspink said: “I am impressed by Donald Trump. I think it is great that he is actually doing what he said he would do during the election campaign. If only more politicians would do the same.
“I notice that the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has so far broken many of the promises that he gave in the London elections and seems to be more concerned about American immigration policy than doing his job of looking after London.
“If elected I would be the opposite of this. I will make sure that every promise that I give in the election is done and I will focus on what needs to be done for Cambridgeshire. If Donald Trump were to come to Cambridgeshire as part of his official visit, that would be a great coup for Cambridgeshire and really put us on the map!
“If President Trump comes to Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, as Mayor I shall make sure that both Cambridge and Peterborough roll out the Civic red carpets!”
