London Mayor Reiterates Objection To Trump's UK Trip

  • No red carpet for Donald Trump says London Mayor Khan

But Khan also declared that he would meet with Trump if the opportunity arose, stating a particular desire to use his position to rebut some of Trump's anti-Muslim bigotry.

"If someone has views that I think can be changed, I am ready to play my role", Khan told CNN.

But Mr Khan, who has clashed with Mr Trump over his decision to bar people from travelling to the U.S. from mainly Muslim countries and the response to the London Bridge terror attack, has questioned whether it takes place.

"If you somehow think it is not possible to be a Muslim and a proud westerner I am happy to disabuse you of that idea, whether you are a reporter for CNN or Donald Trump", he said.

Trump met with British Prime Minister Theresa May earlier in July at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, and announced his plans to travel to London despite protests and debate in the British Parliament about the appropriateness of inviting Trump amid backlash over his travel ban.

"It would make things a lot easier", he said, according to the Sun.

Ms May replied: "Well, you know what the British press are like".

Fixed asset investment was also up, with increases between January to June of 8.6% on year, ahead of expectations. On the other hand, China failed to secure a place in the top 15 economies in terms of GDP growth rate.


But Mr Trump added: "I still want to come, but I'm in no rush".

Trump mocked Khan on Twitter in June for saying there is "no reason to be alarmed" after a deadly terror attack in London.

Khan is not alone in his stance on Trump's visit.

Earlier this year, over 1.8 million people signed a petition seeking to block Trump's United Kingdom trip over fears that it would "cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen".

The pair have a colourful history, most notably in the aftermath of the London Bridge terror attack when Mr Trump criticised the Mayor of London in a Tweet.

In a sharp rebuttal, Khan said his remarks had been taken out of context as he had been referring to the enhanced police presence.

This only drew out another response from Trump who tweeted: "Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement. MSM [mainstream media] is working hard to sell it!"
