Jeremy Corbyn has blasted Donald Trump's comments towards Mexico and suggested he "grow up".

The Labour leader, whose wife is Mexican, said his spouse had reacted with "absolute anger and outrage" to the president elect's idea of a wall separating Mexico and the US.

Corbyn told the Andrew Marr show he was looking forward to the first conversation between his wife and billionaire Trump.

"Donald Trump should grow up and recognise the American economy actually depends on migrant labour", Corbyn said.

He added that Trump's treatment of Mexico "should be challenged".

"All of us want to live in a world where you actually tolerate and deal with each other", he said.
