London Mayor Goes After Trump For Golfing As Major Hurricane Hits US: ‘He’s Clearly Busy On The Golf Course’
London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who has been one of Donald Trump’s biggest critics, did not hold back on Monday when he spoke to Politico about the U.S. president’s handling of Hurrican Dorian.
“He’s clearly busy dealing with a hurricane out on the golf course,” Khan told Politico after learning that Trump had been golfing as the Category 4 hurricane approached the country..
“These people have been inspired by mainstream politicians who subscribe to their point of view,” Khan told Politico Sunday, adding that Trump “is a guy who amplifies racist tweets; amplifies the tweets of fascists; says things that are deeply objectionable. If I don’t stand up and call that out I think I’m doing a disservice to Londoners who chose me as their mayor.”
While people in several southern U.S. states were preparing to be hit by Dorian, Trump was spending his Labor Day playing golf at his Trump National Golf Club in Virginia.
