Trump expects poor relationship with Cameron if elected

US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump warned on Monday that he expects to have a poor relationship with British Prime Minister David Cameron if he wins election later this year.

"It looks like we're not going to have a very good relationship, who knows," Trump told broadcaster ITV when asked about his differences with Cameron. "I hope to have a good relationship with him, but it sounds like he's not willing to address the problem either," Trump said.

Earlier this year, Cameron said Trump's call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States was "divisive, unhelpful and quite simply wrong." 

Trump also angered British politicians and police by telling a US broadcaster that parts of London were "so radicalized the police are afraid for their own lives," a claim rejected as "simply ridiculous" by former London mayor Boris Johnson.

In Monday's interview, Trump criticized London's new Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, for making "very rude statements" about him.

Khan had said Trump's plan to ban Muslims reflected his "ignorant view of Islam" and could make both nations less safe by "alienating mainstream Muslims."
