Wednesday, June 5, 2019

A woman has apologised for shouting “Nazi scum” at a Donald Trump supporter on Tuesday.

Siobhan Prigent, who works at University College Hospital, said she was “very sorry” for her behaviour.

Video showed Ms Prigent and other anti-Trump protesters shouting at a man wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ cap outside the Houses of Parliament.

The unknown man also had a milkshake thrown at him.

Ms Prigent was seen holding a placard on which was written: “This episode of Black Mirror isn’t funny anymore! #NoThanksNazis”.

In a now-deleted tweet she said: “I am very sorry for my behaviour today. I should have protested peacefully & I didn't, & I regret that.

“I've let myself down & I do understand that fully. There are two sides to every story, but my actions were my own, & that's on me. Please leave my family & friends out of it.”

The Trump supporter claimed he was kicked and demonstrators also attempted to remove his cap.

Speaking after the confrontation, he said: “This is the democratically elected president of the free world. I just wanted a debate with the sensible left, I didn't expect any of what happened.

“I never wanted it to get violent, but I wasn't going to be intimidated.”

Earlier in the day, he had told other anti-Trump protesters he was there to support the US President because "he is fighting globalism".
