After President Donald Trump accused London’s Muslim mayor of trying to downplay the Islamic terrorist attack, Mayor Sadiq Khan took offense and said that Trump is not welcome in London. The mayor’s comment was made in connection with Trump’s planned state visit to Great Britain, which Khan says should be cancelled by British authorities.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan escalated his war of words with President Trump late Monday, suggesting the U.S. president’s planned state visit to Britain should be canceled.
Speaking on Channel 4 News, Khan said Britain should not be “rolling out the red carpet to the president of the USA in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for,” when asked whether the visit should be called off.
The comment comes amid a spat between the two leaders in the wake of Saturday’s London terror attack. Trump initially had criticized Khan for a post-attack quote in which the mayor said there was “no reason to be alarmed.” Khan’s comment was in the context of a broader quote regarding a bolstered police presence, but Trump on Sunday night suggested the mayor was downplaying the terror attack itself…
What do you expect from a Muslim politician when faced with harsh criticism for his statements and actions? Frankly, my friends in Great Britain believe that the election of a Muslim as Mayor of London was an affront and a sign of the demise of the British Empire. They believe that it won’t be long before Great Britain, especially England, will officially be a Muslim nation.
