President Donald Trump is on a four-day visit in Great Britain, and he had a gala dinner on Thursday with British and American officials at Blenheim Palace, the ancestral home of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Mr Trump is a big fan of Churchill.
Earlier this year he showed the film called “Darkest hour” in the Oval office, which is a war drama film. It stars Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill, and is an account of his early days as Prime Minister, as Nazi Germany`s Wehrmacht swept across Western Europe, threatening to defeat the United Kingdom during World War II.
The German advance leads to friction at the highest level of government between those who would make a peace treaty with Adolf Hitler, and Churchill, who refused. Britain lost the Empire, and the West lost the world. Now, we have Brexit and a populist tsunami. What now Europe?
