Politicians in the UK and Australia are complaining about fundraising emails from Donald Trump that appear to breach US electoral rules.
A number of members of the UK and Australian parliaments say they have received emails signed by Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr. The messages praise the UK's vote to leave the EU -- known as Brexit -- and entreat the reader for money to fund Trump's US presidential campaign.
Politicians in the UK and Australia have made their feelings clear about the emails. British MP Sir Roger Gale raised the matter in Parliament, saying, "I am all in favour of free speech, but I do not see why colleagues on either side of the House should be subjected to intemperate spam."
Natalie McGarry, MP for Glasgow East, shared the missive from Trump Jr. on social media, along with her response. "Quite why you think it appropriate to write emails to UK parliamentarians with a begging bowl for your father's repugnant campaign is completely beyond me," she wrote in her reply to the fundraising attempt.
"Members of Parliament are being bombarded by electronic communications from Team Trump on behalf of somebody called Donald Trump," Conservative English MP Roger Gale said on Tuesday, according to Politics Home. "Mr. Speaker, I’m all in favor of free speech but I don’t see why colleagues on either side of the House should be subjected to intemperate spam."
