Sadiq Khan warns Trump to expect loud protests if he visits the UK

sadiq khan and trump

I doubt President Trump is worried about this.

Khan is the one who should be worried Trump is going to call out the mayor’s own lack of “good leadership” regarding the rise in knife attacks in his city.

From MSN: Donald Trump should expect loud and peaceful protests if he visits the UK later this year, the London mayor has said. 

Sadiq Khan, who has frequently clashed with the US president since they were elected to office nearly two years ago, made the comments during a St. George’s event in London on Saturday. The former Labour MP added that the capital respects, embraces and celebrates diversity.

His comments come following reports that Trump is planning to visit the UK in the summer.

“I hope if he does come, he reflects on the difference good leadership can make,” Khan told the Press Association.

“We have got a great history in our city of protests… we have got a great history in our city of bringing about change by protest, the key thing is for it to be lawful, for it to be peaceful. I have no doubt that if he does come, there will be some people who want to express their views loudly and peacefully to the president.”

Khan also said how “the message should be loud and clear that we think it is wrong that anyone should be amplifying Far Right messages” or messages of hatred or division.

He added: “I was very disappointed to be honest that the leader of our closest ally was doing just that, and we shouldn’t be embarrassed to say to our best friend that we think they are wrong.

“I think our best friend, the USA, their leader was wrong when he retweeted messages from a Far Right group.”

Trump came under fire in November for retweeting a number of inflammatory videos from Britain First, which led Theresa May to condemn him at the time. The US president has not visited the UK since he was elected to the White House in November 2016.

The Daily Mail has reported a visit from Trump has been “pencilled in” for July, while the Daily Telegraph quoted an unnamed US official saying the president was looking at coming in the “late summer”.

In January Trump cancelled a visit to the UK to open the new American embassy, tweeting that the building’s relocation was a “bad deal”.

Khan said at the time that Trump had “got the message” after the president’s plan to visit sparked huge controversy and repeated calls for May to withdraw the invite.

His cancellation prompted media speculation that reasons for the snub included that Trump had been offended by perceived slights against him by UK public figures.

  1. To announce protests is to encourage protests. President Trump’s agenda moves on without worrying about interruptions. “Midget” Khan, the son of Pakistani parents, seems to adhere to the fabian socialism but, his deep Muslim roots are stronger so anything to disrupt and call for attention will be planned for the event. They hate us with a passion as much as we would love to seem them disappear.

  2. Somebody needs to call in an air strike on his office. These New Odorists have turned London into a sewer.

    • lophatt . . . . It truly is tragic that London, with all it’s wonderful ancient historic buildings, and for many American’s who can trace their heritage through Great Britain, has become an open sewer. I am wondering just what percentage of travelers have decided to forgo visiting this ancient city because of the increase of the blood thirsty savages who now are in the majority. Even the fact that they now have a Muslime mayor who obviously hates the Far Right, and wishes to see London come under Sharia Law does not bode well for the rest of the world.

    Mexico, whose laws on immigration are very tough, must stop people from going through Mexico and into the U.S. We may make this a condition of the new NAFTA Agreement. Our Country cannot accept what is happening! Also, we must get Wall funding fast.

    Despite the Democrat inspired laws on Sanctuary Cities and the Border being so bad and one sided, I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country. It is a disgrace. We are the only Country in the World so naive! WALL

    • Stovepipe . . . . Bless you, thank you for repeating this important message from our President. Truly, “it is a disgrace. We are the only Country in the World so naïve!” It defies imagination that this can even be so.

      GO TRUMP GO! There is no way about it, we do need for force Mexico to stop foreign invaders from jumping from their country into ours. If we need to have this as a condition of the new NAFTA Agreement–then so be it! If thee was ever a man who could achieve this . . . it will be Donald J Trump.

    Reblogged on kommonsentsjane/blogkommonsents.

    How did this pussy cat get elected? Just because someone makes noise – he runs into his shell? The reason the Brits can’t respond because they have them under this shade tree of silence or they put you in jail.

    Remember just recently they wouldn’t allow someone to enter the U.K . because they MIGHT say something that didn’t agree with Khan.

  5. Trump needs to give the mayor the bird. Why would you meet with an idiot in the first place? I don’t think the mayor is so much the cause as the people that elected him. Briton has gone to hell. nno more good food, great cars, deluxe dental plans……oh. They never had that stuff? never mind.

  9. Bringing about change through protest? Imposing no go zones and sharia with the encouragement of leaders by birth or election seeking to drastically cull the population. The UK becoming a no exist zone for non-Muslims? A population that will be easier to manage in every way.

  10. Saddiq Khan is a LITTLE WORM, and I get it: Her Majesty the Queen is the hand and he is the glove, the sock puppet.
    BIG PICTURE TIME: Satan is gearing up for his FINAL BATTLE. Trump is no saint. He is no Pastor or Reverend. But he is a white collar billionaire with blue collar roots, and his saving grace is that he wants to multiply whatever wealth he can, instead of vacuuming it up for himself. I believe he is compromised and blackmailable, but he is ALL WE GOT at this point.

    IF the British Empire and its model can ever be broken, then the current World Order shall FALL. According to Lyndon Larouche, this shall be a TALL ORDER, and, frankly, like the problems with the Catholic Church, I do not believe any NATURAL solution is possible.

    Saddiq Khan is a PUNK. He just happens to have a sort of Silva Thins/James Bond/George Clooney veneer of charisma. DON’T BE CONNED: He’s a NOBODY. He’ll be gone without ever having achieved anything. Donald Trump may very well go out in a Blaze of Glory, but he WILL be remembered, warts and all.

    We’re in the Battle and we’re about to see all hell break loose, relatively soon. Now is the time to get informed of all the dramatis personae. We’re about to go through a crisis, and things will never be the same again. We cannot afford to fail!

  11. To those who may complain about President Trump, his flaws are less than those of his recent predecessors, and he was the only presidential candidate with outstanding values and principles that motivated him to run for high office. Others sought prestige and power and, like those in show business, were willing to serve global powers. The horrors written in Revelation/Apocalypse, Matthew 24, and the Old Testament have not happened yet. Those calling for Nimrod, Baphomet, Lucifer, Satan are calling for a suffering never yet occurred and never to be repeated.
