A TORY MP told his constituents that "looters and arsonists have it coming" after he was asked to condemn Donald Trump's response to George Floyd protests in the US.

Sir Desmond Swayne, who represents Forest West, told one constituent: "Sorry to disagree. Arsonists and looters have it coming."

His remarks come as Trump again risked inflaming tensions as protesters marked a ninth consecutive day of action demanding justice fo Floyd, who died after a Minneapolis police officer pressed a knee into his neck for more than eight minutes.

Trump urged the New York mayor to request the National Guard to intervene, claiming: “NYC is totally out of control.”

The politician's response went viral after Twitter user Eleanor posted a screenshot, saying: "I emailed my local MP asking him to condemn Trump's actions, support BLM / black people in our community and urge the UK government to take action. This was his response to my email..."

The tweet has more than 10,000 retweets and 17,000 likes.

In response to a second email from another constituent, also asking for criticism of Trump’s actions, the MP added: “Racism is a cancer, and I’m glad the perpetrator is on a murder charge. Nevertheless, looters, arsonists and rioters have it coming.”
