Steve Hilton, David Cameron’s former communications director, has backed Donald Trump in the US presidential election.
The ex-No.10 aide, who now lives and works in the United States, stopped short of offering “enthusiastic” backing for the Republican – but said he preferred him to Hillary Clinton.
Writing for Fox News, Hilton said “rich coastal elites” supported Clinton because they would “do just fine” even if the Democrat failed to grow the economy once elected.
“You don’t have to agree with everything Donald Trump says or does to conclude that he would make the most positive, practical difference in the real lives of real people,” he said.
“Clinton has confirmed all the worst fears people had about her: the lying, the corruption, the constant political calculation and lack of deep conviction; the jaw-dropping arrogance and sense of entitlement displayed by her and her acolytes in America’s insular ruling elite; their snooty and divisive contempt for working people and anyone who doesn’t share their ideological worldview.”
