London Mayor Sadiq Khan Invites Donald Trump to Visit UK
The invitation is the recent in a bitter feud between Donald Trump and London’s new mayor, Sadiq Khan.
- London’s new mayor Sadiq Khan has invited the United States presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to visit the UK and meet his family, in a bid to end their ongoing feud about Trump’s plan to ban all Muslims from America.
I invite Donald Trump to come to London. You know the great thing about London? Muslim, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, we don’t just tolerate each other, we respect, we celebrate, we embrace. And my concern is this. Are you doing the job of Daesh (Islamic State) and the extremists for them by saying the West hates Islam? I am the West.Sadiq Khan, Mayor, London
- Earlier, Trump had called Khan ‘very rude’ in an interview and had challenged him to an IQ test.
