Donald Trump begins UK trip by insulting London Mayor Sadiq Khan

The wheels of Air Force One hadn’t even touched the ground at the airport when Donald Trump announced his arrival to the UK by tweeting about London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Not content with comments he made last night about the mayor, the president repeated them and for good measure called him a “stone cold loser” as well.

In two tweets, he wrote: “Sadiq Khan, who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London, has been foolishly “nasty” to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom.

“He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me……”

He added: “Kahn reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job – only half his height.

“In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom, and am looking very much forward to my visit. Landing now!”

On Sunday Khan stoked the ire of the president by describing him as “just one of the most egregious examples of a growing global threat” and compared the language he has used to that of the “fascists of the 20th century”.

As he left the White House on that evening, Donald Trump rebuked the Mayor of London and said he would not be willing to meet him.
