A victory for Donald Trump in the US presidential election could spark a “clash of civilisations”, according to a senior security official in Dubai.

Lieutenant General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, the deputy chairman of police and general security in Dubai, made the comment in a post on Twitter.

He wrote: “If Trump beats Hillary (Clinton), that means that the scenario of the clash of civilisations … will come to light at the hands of the candidate and al-Baghdadi,” referencing Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

In a Republican debate on Thursday night, Mr Trump refused to back away from his recent statement that “Islam hates the West”, saying he would not change to be “politically correct”.
