PRESIDENT Trump rained-down upon London embarressment Sadiq Khan today, just moments before getting ready to Land in the capital to begin his official state visit.
Khan – an open critic of the President of our closest ally – has frequently attacked Trump since he first announced his candidacy, and throughout his time as President.
The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has compared the language used by Donald Trump to rally his supporters to that of “the fascists of the 20th century” in an explosive intervention before the US president’s state visit to London that begins on Monday.
Writing in the Observer, Khan condemned the red-carpet treatment being afforded to Trump (as it has to every President) who, with his wife Melania, will be a guest of the Queen during his three-day stay, which is expected to provoke massive protests in the capital on Tuesday.
Khan said: “President Donald Trump is just one of the most egregious examples of a growing global threat. The far right is on the rise around the world, threatening our hard-won rights and freedoms and the values that have defined our liberal, democratic societies for more than 70 years.”
Trump hit back at Sadiq’s disgraceful comments, taking to Twitter to tell his millions of world-wide followers: “
The outspoken President, who arrived in the UK today, has previously slated Khan on social media, referring to him as a failure, and highlighting the Mayor’s incompetence over tackling radical Islam and growing knife crime.
