Former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s grandson slammed U.S. President Donald Trump on Twitter Friday, calling Trump a “daft twerp” for his comments blaming Islamic immigrants for crime in Britain.
According to The Hill, Nicholas Soames — grandson of the World War II-era prime minister and current conservative member of Parliament — was responding to an early morning tweet from Trump that said, “Just out report: “United Kingdom crime rises 13% annually amid spread of Radical Islamic terror.” Not good, we must keep America safe!”

Soames’ reply was curt and to the point, “#Thenfixguncontrolyoudafttwerp.”

The prime minister’s grandson is not the only Briton to lash out of Trump after his anti-Islamic tweet. Many U.K. social media users lambasted Trump, urging him to “butt out” of things he doesn’t understand.
