Donald Trump Is Not Welcome In London Says Mayor Sadiq Khan

07 June 2017

During a news conference on Monday, the mayor even said that some state visits were "welcome, some less so" - a possible reference to Mr Trump's expected trip to the UK. He promoted a proposed travel ban on visitors from six mostly Muslim countries and refugees from around the world that has been blocked by USA courts. "I think, again, the president's point is something he said frankly back nearly two years now - a year and a half ago - when the president talked about how we have to be more committed to national security".

Donald Trump has doubled down on his criticism of Sadiq Khan in the wake of Saturday's terror attack in central London.

They said of Mr Khan: "He has risen above this crisis of death and destruction, as mayors continue to do, to alleviate fear, to bring comfort to his people of London and to give support to the first responders who continue to protect, defend and provide emergency care to his people of London".

Trump's latest missive at Khan was part of several Monday morning tweeted statements from the president.

The president kept up his attacks on Khan the next day.

How long can we keep watching this endless vehicle crash that is Donald Trump's presidency?

The mayor addressed a vigil alongside Diane Abbott, Amber Rudd, police chiefs and religious leaders last night in Potters Field, less than a mile from the scene of the atrocities at London Bridge and Borough Market. "People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!" he wrote in one tweet.

"The point is, there is a reason to be alarmed. Honestly I've got better and more important things to focus on", he added.

"But in the face of this changing and changed threat, absolutely I will be seeking for London and for policing generally more resourcing obviously".

The President started his Twitter assault on the London Mayor on Sunday, misrepresenting comments Mr Khan had made urging the public not to be alarmed by an increased police presence. Trump has once again courted controversy with his unfiltered comments about the recent terror attack in London, UK.

"I understand the mayor wishing to not spread panic but what I would like to hear is him say: 'As the first Muslim mayor of London, I am going to do all I can to work with the Muslim community to drive out the extremist preachers from our mosques". But Khan's comments epitomize this: whatever benefit of the doubt Europe had mustered for the new US president is now gone.

On Tuesday, the Conservative prime minister told a political rally in response to a question about Trump's tweets, "I think Donald Trump was wrong in the things that he has said about Sadiq Khan". It's really important that we work closely with our closest allies and whenever we've had problems in the past, the United States of America has come to our help.

Qatar has said it will not retaliate for the curbs. "It has to choose whether it must move in one direction or another direction". In contrast the rift is expected to weigh on global oil prices, keeping them at the relatively low US$50-$55 a barrel, they said.

In his Sunday tweet, Trump commented: "At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'"

It is the second day that Trump has twisted the mayor's words.

"London stands in defiance against this cowardly attack on our city, our people, our values and our way of life", Khan told the crowd.
