The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, in response to a series of tweets to US President Donald trump, criticizing the reaction of Khan on the London terrorist attacks, called on the British government to cancel a planned visit to trump in the UK.
«I don’t think it’s worth spreading the red carpet before the US President, when his policy contradicts our principles,» said Khan in an interview with Britain’s Channel 4.
The Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain, Boris Johnson went from a direct answer to a question of journalists of newspaper The Guardian, which tried to find out the opinion of Johnson about the upcoming visit of trump. The head of the British foreign Ministry said that the invitation was already made, but expressed their agreement with the statements Sadiq Khan, which caused indignation of the President of the United States.
We will remind, the President of the United States Donald trump published on Monday a series of tweets in which he criticized the mayor of London Sadiq Khan and distort the meaning of the speech of Khan, in which he stated that «in the coming days on the streets of London will be enhanced police presence, and residents should not scare».
Trump pulled out Hahn’s words out of context and wrote: «We have to stop being politically correct and focus on the safety of our citizens. If we don’t become cleverer, but worse. At least seven people were killed, 48 were injured and the mayor of London said: «there is no reason to be afraid!»
