Lol...British foriegn secretary, Boris Johnson compares President Trump to Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe

'Donald Trump is no worse than ageing Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe, Britain's foreign secretary Boris Johnson has suggested.

Johnson has defended the under-fire new US president's right to a state visit to Britain by saying that Queen Elizabeth II has previously hosted Romanian dictator Nicolai Ceausescu and Mugabe, so could "probably cope" with Trump, The Independent reported.
Mugabe was awarded a knighthood by the Queen during the Zimbabwe leader's state visit to the UK in 1994. He was stripped of it in 2008, following outrage over rights abuses and election violence. 
Currently attending an AU summit in Ethiopia, the Zimbabwe leader hasn't publicly commented on Trump's election although officials close to him appear to be very pleased with it, culled from News24.
