Britain´s interior minister Sajid Javid on Friday recalled being told “to go back to where I came from” as a child, condemning extremist language after comments by US President Donald Trump. Trump faced accusations of racism this week when he tweeted that four Democrat congresswomen—all US nationals—could “go back” to the countries from which they came. Prime Minister Theresa May earlier condemned Trump´s language as “completely unacceptable”. Javid, whose Muslim parents moved from Pakistan to Britain before he was born in 1969, urged public figures to “moderate their language”. Launching a review into Britain´s counter-extremism strategy, he said anti-immigrant rhetoric was stoking dangerous division.
