Back in June, London Mayor Sadiq Khan called on the British government to cancel a planned state visit by President Donald Trump after being criticized in tweets by the U.S. President.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan has stated that “London is a beacon of tolerance, acceptance and diversity”, and for that precise reason an official visit by U.S. President Donald Trump would “not be welcomed”.
Khan made the statement in written responses to questions from a member of the London Assembly, in which he was asked what he would do to make President Trump “feel welcome” when the anticipated visit comes in 2018.
Stating he had “previously called on Theresa May to cancel her ill-judged offer of a state visit to President Trump”, the mayor made clear he feels a visit by President Trump would be against the “interests and security of Londoners”. Khan said :”It is clear that any official visit here would not be welcomed.”
