WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump has mischaracterized protests over health care funding in Britain to attack Democrats for “pushing for Universal HealthCare.

” In an early morning tweet, Mr. Trump claimed the British system was “not working,” however in spite of huge financial strain – which many say has been politically inflicted – the National Health Service continues to provide free care to all British residents as it has done for 70 years.

Mr. Trump said on Twitter Monday: “The Democrats are pushing for Universal HealthCare while thousands of people are marching in the UK because their U system is going broke and not working. Dems want to greatly raise taxes for really bad and non-personal medical care. No thanks!”

Thousands of people did march in London on Saturday, and in other cities across Britain – but it was in support of the NHS, demanding more funding for it and blasting the Conservative government which has been accused for years of underfunding the service.
