Australian lawmakers term Trump 'revolting slug'

IANS  |  Sydney 

Australia's New South Wales has formally branded US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump a "revolting slug" unfit for office.

Greens MP Jeremy Buckhingham tabled a motion slamming the Republican candidate, that was passed unanimously, reported ABC news on Thursday.

"It is great that all sides of Australian politics, from conservatives to Liberals to Greens, agree that Donald Trump is a revolting slug ...," Buckingham said after the vote was passed.

The Australian lawmakers had condemned Trump for his "misogynistic, hateful" comments made "about women and minorities".

They had raised the issue of the taped conversations in which Trump boasted about using his fame to "grope" women, and termed it "clearly ... sexual assault".

The report said that the NSW "agrees with those who have described Trump as 'a revolting slug' unfit for public office".

The motion regarding Trump was passed without dissent, after it was confirmed that the term "revolting slug" did not amount to unparliamentary language.

"It's clear that all reasonable and decent people find Trump's behaviour obnoxious," Buckingham said, adding he hoped that the American voters would reject Trump's politics of hate.

US talkshow host Rosie O'Donnell had previously described Trump as "an orange slug".
