Room Erupts In Cheers As London Mayor Unveils New Nickname For Trump
London Mayor Sadiq Khan escalated his feud with US President Donald Trump on Saturday, slamming Trump and his social media habits and referring to him as the “6 ft 3 child in the White House.”
According to The Independent, Khan was speaking to a room of teachers at an education event at Westminster’s Central Hall when Khan joked that he made sure to turn his phone off to avoid Trump’s annoying tweets.
“For those of you that have your phones on, if somebody starts tweeting about me – a 6ft 3 child in the White House – can you let me know” the mayor asked as the room reportedly erupted into cheers and applause.
Khan and Trump have had a long-running feud that reached new heights when the U.S. president visited the United Kingdom earlier this month.
The London Mayor wrote a fiery op-ed before Trump’s arrival arguing that the United Kingdom is on the “wrong side of history.”
“In years to come, I suspect this state visit will be one we look back on with profound regret and acknowledge that we were on the wrong side of history,” Khan said in The Guardian.
Trump shot back by calling Khan a “stone cold loser” who was being “foolishly ‘nasty’” to him.
Khan retaliated by calling Trump the “poster boy for the far-right movement around the world” as thousands gathered in London to protest Trump’s state visit.
