London Mayor calls for US presidents trip to be cancelled after Twitter storm


Via UBC News –  The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has called for United States president Donald Trump’s state visit to the United Kingdom to be cancelled after the president criticised Khan for his response to the recent terror attack in London.

Khan said in a statement, “I don’t think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the USA in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for. When you have a special relationship it is no different from when you have got a close mate. You stand with them in times of adversity but you call them out when they are wrong. There are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong.”⠀
