Media's reporting on Donald Trump unfair - Mark Richardson

Mark Richardson says the media's coverage of US President Donald Trump is unfair. 

There are "never any positive stories" about Mr Trump or about anything he's achieved, Richardson says. He also believes news editors are "losing their editorial judgement" when reporting on the President, who is currently in the UK. 

"I'm not saying he's a great man and I'm not saying he's a great leader, but at the moment all we seem to have is a world that wants to undermine him and it's starting to draw a lot of people towards him," Richardson said on The AM Show on Friday morning. 

A huge temporary wall has been built through one of London's most popular parks as part of rigorous security measures to protect Donald Trump while he's staying in London. But many have criticised the President for avoiding the protesters, labelling it "undemocratic". 

"What a load of bollocks," Richardson said.

"He's not going over there to be told off. He's going over there to have a meeting with the PM and also the Queen. That's what he's doing. It's not undemocratic that he'll get shielded from protesters that might get in the way of his job. He's the President of the United States," Richardson said. 

"They don't like him. I don't like him. He's a buffoon of a man. But I'm telling you now: I'm getting driven more and more closer to this guy because of the behaviour of those who just want to undermine him at every step of the way."

More than 60,000 people in the UK have signed up to demonstrate in London on Friday when protesters intend to fly a large balloon over parliament portraying Mr Trump as an orange baby. A campaign is also under way to get Green Day's 2004 hit American Idiot to the top of the UK Singles Chart.
