Jeremy Corbyn is desperately trying to 'weaponise' Donald Trump for the election campaign today as the US president attends the NATO summit.

In an extraordinary campaign video yesterday, the Labour leader effectively blamed the Special Relationship for the London Bridge terror attack - despite pleas for politicians to avoid politicising the atrocity.

And after demanding Boris Johnson stops 'clinging on to Donald Trump's coat tails', Mr Corbyn has now written to the US president urging him to guarantee he will not try to increase NHS drugs prices.

Mr Johnson has forged a warm allliance with Mr Trump, but Tories are nervous that an outburst from his fellow leader at the two-day summit could disrupt the election campaign. The PM is set to duck a bilateral meeting with the president, although the pair are likely to hold talks 'in the margins'.

Johnson 'World's Leading Sycophant' To Donald Trump, Says Corbyn

  Johnson 'World's Leading Sycophant' To Donald Trump, Says Corbyn Jeremy Corbyn has branded Boris Johnson the “world’s leading sycophant” to Donald Trump. The Labour leader has made the accusation as the US president is due to arrive in the UK for a NATO summit on Monday. Trump will spend two days in the country, meeting the Queen at Buckingham Palace and other world leaders at the summit in Watford. It is thought Johnson and Trump will hold a joint press conference also as the campaign for the December 12 general election enters its final stretch. Making a speech on foreign policy in York, Corbyn accused Johnson of being too close to the president, saying it was “time to stop clinging on to Donald Trump’s coat-tails”.

The latest salvo came as Mr Corbyn - who is expected to go to a Buckingham Palace reception being hosted by the Queen for NATO leaders this evening - struggles to overhaul the Tory advantage in the polls.

A Kantar survey today showed the Conservatives increasing their lead to 12 points, with just nine days to go until the country votes.

A slew of massive giveaway Labour policies, including a £100billion offer of free broadband for everyone and £58billion pensions handout to women born in the 1950s, have so far failed to shift the dial.

The Labour election video yesterday showed images including flowers next to the road sign in the capital, with a soundtrack of Mr Corbyn condemning Western aggression for fuelling terrorism and emotional music.

Mr Corbyn tweeted the video along with a message that Mr Johnson should 'stop clinging on to Donald Trump's coat-tails'.

Mr Corbyn has a long record of opposing US influence throughout 30 years as a relatively obscure Labour backbencher.

He has previously insisted the NATO military alliance should have been scrapped decades ago, dismissed Britain's 'global role', and said nuclear weapons should be unilaterally given up.

Last week MailOnline highlighted a 2014 article by Mr Corbyn's closest aide, Seumas Milne, branding NATO a 'colonial expeditionary force' and calling for US bases in the UK to be closed and personnel sent home.

Last night the Labour leader wrote to Mr Trump demanding that he guarantees the US will not try to push NHS medicine prices up through a post-Brexit trade deal.

However, Mr Corbyn is facing questions over leaked trade documents which experts said had hallmarks of a Russian fake news campaign.

Mr Corbyn published the 451 pages of unredacted, classified files last week to back up his claims of a Tory plot to sell off the NHS. The documents were dismissed as not showing what he said they did.

And experts yesterday claimed the leak resembled a disinformation campaign uncovered this year which originated in Russia.

Researchers at Oxford and Cardiff universities, the Atlantic Council think-tank and social media analytics firm Graphika said the manner in which the files were first leaked online mirrored a campaign called Secondary Infektion.

Secondary Infektion, uncovered by the Atlantic Council in June, used fabricated or altered documents to spread fake news across at least 30 online platforms. It stemmed from a network of social media accounts which Facebook said 'originated in Russia'.

Experts warned the similarities with the campaign and the manner in which the NHS documents were published could signal foreign interference in Britain's election.

Ben Nimmo, head of investigations at Graphika, said: 'It's on the same set of websites [as Secondary Infektion], it's using the same types of accounts and making the same language errors. It's either the Russian operation or someone trying hard to look like it.'

A Labour spokesman said: 'Neither the UK nor the US government have denied their authenticity. Given what they reveal, it's not surprising that there are attempts to muddy the waters to cover up what has been exposed.'
