Trump Attacks Mayor Of London, The Whines That He’s “Unwelcome” In The UK
President Donald Trump on Thursday continued his feud with London Mayor Sadiq Khan in an interview with the British newspaper The Sun.
Trump said an interview with The Sun that Khan had “done a terrible job in London.”
“I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the horrible things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in,” Trump told the publication
Trump also took issue with the fact that he felt Khan had not been respectful to him.
“I think he has not been hospitable to a government that is very important. Now he might not like the current President, but I represent the United States. I also represent a lot of people in Europe because a lot of people from Europe are in the United States.”
Trump then said that he feels “unwelcome” in London.
“I used to love London as a city. I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?” the President told the newspaper.
Addressing the issue of the giant inflatable “Trump baby” that will fly above London on Friday, he said, “I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London.”
Trump did say, however, that the British public like him and that “many people are delighted.”
