Mayor of London speaks out against Trump’s state visit

Sadiq Khan says U.S. president should not get VIP treatment when he comes to Britain later this year because of travel ban


 

London’s mayor says that President Donald Trump shouldn’t receive a state visit in Britain because of his “cruel” policies on immigration.

Sadiq Khan said Sunday the U.S. president should not get VIP treatment when he comes to Britain later this year because of his “ban on people from seven Muslim-majorities countries” and his decision to block refugees from entering the United States.

Khan said that “in those circumstances we shouldn’t be rolling out the red carpet.”

He spoke one day before British legislators are expected to debate a proposal to downgrade the planned state visit. The debate was scheduled in response to an online petition calling for the honour to be rescinded.

A state visit usually includes extensive pomp and a stay at Buckingham Palace.

Mayor of London speaks out against Trump’s state visit

  1. The British government, who must still be wondering how Sadiq Khan became the mayor of London, should maintain the invitation to President Trump as a final attempt to reverse the trend of the U.K. becoming an Islamic country.

  2. Never thought I’d catch myself saying this, but if the state visit goes through, I actually feel sorry for the Queen.
