In a not so surprising and somewhat expected move, President Donald Trump has gone on Twitter to attack the NHS by tweeting that it is “going broke and not working” which has offended the British Government and the people.

What President Trump seems to be referring to is the marches that took place throughout the UK asking for more funding for the NHS. This naturally offended more than a few politicians both in the US and UK. Health secretary Jeremy Hunt went on twitter to respond with his own tweet targeted towards President Trump saying: “I may disagree with claims made on that march but not ONE of them wants to live in a system where 28m people have no cover.

“NHS may have challenges but I’m proud to be from the country that invented universal coverage – where all get care no matter the size of their bank balance.”

The NHS in Crisis march was organized by the People’s Assembly and Health Campaigns Together. In its current state, the NHS by no means can be called functional but similarly, it can neither be called broken. The NHS is under immense pressure since it didn’t account providing health care for immigrants that come from around the world which has had an adverse effect on the public health care of the UK which was a point Nigel Farage talked about when he appeared on Fox And Friends.

Mr. Farage said: “We have a population of 65 million but it’s increasing by half a million people a year. We just haven’t got enough hospitals, we haven’t got enough doctors, we haven’t got enough facilities.

The National Health Service has turned into the International Health Service and we’re providing a lot of healthcare for people coming into Britain from all over the world. We do need some absolutely fundamental reforms. This system we have was set up in 1948. Surprisingly for a state-run thing for most of the first fifty years the public had great faith in it. Right now it’s pretty much at breaking point.”

Many are speculating that this his talk is the reason why President Trump decided to barge in on the NHS Crisis. On the other hand, some people are just angry at Donald Trump for complaining about something which he has no right to complain about. One thing is clear though, when President Trump makes his visit to the UK, it’s going to be great to report everything about it.
