London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, calls Donald Trump & # 39; a 20th-century facist & # 39; while the capital prepares for huge protests during the president's state visit
- The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, compared the language of Trump with the twentieth-century autists
- He also condemned the decision to roll out the red carpet for the president
- Feud between the two started in 2016 when Trump challenged him to an IQ test
London Mayor Sadiq Khan has compared the language of Donald Trump with that of & # 39; a 20th-century fascist & # 39; and accused him of & # 39; shamelessly & # 39; intervene in the conservative party leadership race.
In anticipation of the US President's three-day state visit to the United Kingdom, which would begin tomorrow, Khan also condemned the decision to roll out the red carpet for the UK's closest ally.
It is the newest episode in a long-running dispute between the multi-millionaire and Tooting-born Labor Mayor that dates from 2016.
Trump did not mention London's mayor in an interview with The Sun last week prior to his state visit, where he considered Meghan Markle as & # 39; nasty & # 39; described.
Writing in the Observer, Khan said: & President Trump is just one of the most flagrant examples of a growing global threat.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan, pictured last night in the Champions League final, compared the language of Donald Trump to that of & # 39; a fascist twentieth century & # 39; and accused him of & # 39; shamelessly & # 39; intervene in the conservative party leadership race
& # 39; The extreme right is increasing globally and threatens our hard-fought rights and freedoms and the values that our liberal, democratic societies have defined for more than 70 years.
& # 39; This is a man who also tried to abuse the fears of Londoners after a horrific terrorist attack on our city, strengthened the tweets of a British extreme right-wing racist group and fake news as powerful scientific evidence of the dangers of climate change to the denounced;
& # 39; And is now shamelessly trying to intervene in the conservative party leadership race by supporting Boris Johnson because he believes it would allow him to become an ally in number 10 for his divided agenda. & # 39;
The feud of the couple was fueled in 2016 when Trump challenged Sadiq to an IQ test after the mayor said his views on Islam were ignorant & # 39; goods.
The comments were made prior to the US President's three-day state visit to the UK starting tomorrow
Shortly thereafter, when he said to the BBC, Sadiq Khan said, “Look, it was Donald Trump who started this by saying that his general ban on Muslims would make an exception for me as mayor of London.
& # 39; And the point I made regarding Donald Trump is that there is nothing exceptional about me. What about other Londoners who are business people, men and women, who happen to be Muslims and want to do business in America?
& # 39; What about other Londoners who want to study in America but happen to be Muslims? & # 39;
They clashed again in June 2017 when US President Khan & # 39; s reaction to the London terrorist & # 39; pathetic & # 39; called.
Khan had previously warned Londoners that there would be an increased police presence on the street and that there was no reason to be alerted & # 39 ;.
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators are expected in central London when Trump meets with Prime Minister Theresa May in Downing Street.
The & # 39; Trump baby & # 39; blimp and a giant Trump robot sitting on a golden toilet are also likely to appear.
What Twitter splashes has Donald Trump had with the UK and why did they cause such a & # 39; n violation?
While a Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said that in London there are & # 39; no go zones & # 39; because of terrorism.
He said parts of the city claimed & # 39; so radicalized & # 39; were that the police & # 39; were afraid of their own lives & # 39 ;.
The US president went to Twitter to send Sadiq Khan & # 39; s & # 39; pathetic & # 39; response to the London Bridge terrorist attacks.
He aroused indignation in the UK when he tweeted: & # 39; At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terrorist attacks & # 39 ;, the president wrote on his personal Twitter account, & # 39; 39; no reason to be alarmed! & # 39;
Critics pointed out that the mayor of London said that residents should not be alarmed about the increased presence of the police.
Trump has wrongly linked the increase in crime in England and Wales to & # 39; Radical Islamic terror & # 39 ;.
The US President sent a tweet with references to yesterday and showed that crime increased by 13 percent last year and warned & # 39; we must keep Americans safe & # 39 ;.
But British MPs shoved Mr. Trump for talking about & # 39; nonsense & # 39; and said that he & # 39; spreading fear and xenophobia & # 39; wrongly blaming the rise of terrorism.
Relations between the United Kingdom and the US took a storm when Donald Trump referred the anti-Islamic propaganda of the extreme right-wing group Britain First.
Theresa May criticized the president and said he & # 39; wrong & # 39; was to share the video.
Mr. Trump returned to Twitter: & Theresa, don't focus on me, focus on the destructive radical Islamic terrorism that is taking place in the UK. We are doing well! & # 39;
Donald Trump tore into the British NHS – the brand of the British universal health care system & broke and didn't work.
He claimed that a major protest over the winter crisis at British hospitals in London at the weekend was a sign that it is not a system that the US should copy.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt hit back and said he & # 39; proud & # 39; is on the NHS and no Brit wants to live in an American system where millions have no coverage at all.
