The last time Trump was in El Paso, he said this about undocumented immigrants: "Murders, murders, murders. Killings, murders!" So it'll be awkward when he goes there tomorrow to visit people grieving a mass shooting motivated by anti-immigrant bigotry. https://t.co/G9pxUGpi69

Labour won't back the only sure-fire way of stopping No Deal.
