After his first visit to the United Kingdom, Trump showed strong opposition to the UK’s agenda.
Because of his opposition, and rude behavior probably, the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan made clear to Trump he is not welcome.
In fact, just last week Mayor Khan requested British officials to cancel a state visit from President Trump.
“I don’t think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the USA in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for,” Mayor Khan stated in an interview with Channel 4 News.
“When you have a special relationship it is no different from when you have got a close mate. You stand with them in times of adversity but you call them out when they are wrong. There are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong.” Khan continued.
The mayor is absolutely correct in keeping Trump at an arms distance. The President’s agenda is a blatant attack on UK interests, and they must protect what they value.
Our stubborn President is a tremendous amount of weight on the single thread holding our relationship with the UK, and the rest of Europe together.
