London: Dubbing the United States (US) presidential nominee Donald Trump as a ‘rabble-rouser’, one of the world’s top scientists Stephen William Hawking on Tuesday said he failed to understand the politician’s elevation.

When the boffin was asked in an interview whether he could explain the controversial American tycoon-turned-politician’s mass appeal, he replied, “I just can’t.”

“He is a rabble-rouser who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator,” added the 74-year-old cosmologist.

Hawking also weighed in on Brexit (British-exit) issue and said, “There are two obvious reasons why the British people should stay in. Firstly, it promotes mobility and the second is that the exchange of people enables skills to transfer more quickly.”

Highlights:

  • The University of Cambridge professor gave his thoughts on Trump in a television interview.
  • The Trump campaign has yet not commented on it.
  • Hawking is not the first British public figure to censure Trump.
  • Earlier, Trump’s comments on Islam had provoked a backlash in the United Kingdom.
