BREAKING: London Mayor Khan Responds To Trump Cancelling His Visit!
London Mayor Sadiq Khan has claimed that President Trump cancelled his visit because London doesn't like him.
From The NY Post:
London Mayor Sadiq Khan said Friday that President Trump canceled his planned visit to the British capital after he “got the message” from its residents, according to reports.
Trump claimed he had scrapped the trip because he didn’t want to open the new US Embassy in London — blaming former President Obama for relocating the diplomatic headquarters.
But Khan suggested the real reason was because Londoners would deem Trump persona non grata.
“It appears that President Trump got the message from the many Londoners who love and admire America and Americans but find his policies and action the polar opposite of our city’s values of inclusion, diversity and tolerance,” Khan said in a statement released on Twitter.

Knife crime, gun crime, theft, burglary, rape, and homicide are all massively higher since Sadiq Khan was elected Mayor of London.
Britain’s media celebrated in droves when London elected its first Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, in May 2016.
Now the cacophony caused by the “we’re not racist” backslapping has ended, the true implications of a Khan mayoralty are being realised.
In Britain’s capital over the past year, Khan presided over rises in knife crime, gun crime, theft, burglary, rape, homicide, and more. And not just by a little bit, either.
Some in the media — by which I mean basically just me — predicted Khan might be a disaster for London, but the extent to which this is true was beyond even our worst nightmares.
Parking the anecdotal evidence of Khan giving preference to genital mutilation-linked groups, and using his platform to agitate against the U.S. President, the statistics reveal a terrifying incompetence in keeping London safe — one of the mayor’s core areas of responsibility.
Data from the Mayor of London’s Police and Crime Office — led by former lobbyist-turned-Deputy Mayor Sophie Linden — reveals a sharp uptick in violent crime in Khan’s first year.
From the years 2015/16 to 2016/17, homicides in London rose by 27.1 per cent. Youth homicide jumped 70 per cent. Serious youth violence was up 19 per cent. Robbery was up 33.4 per cent, while home burglaries rose by 18.7 per cent.

London’s Mayor Is Trying To Cancel President Trump’s Visit!
London Mayor Sadiq Khan is repeating his calls to cancel the planned official visit of President Trump to the city.
Breitbart reported: Khan made the statement in written responses to questions from a member of the London Assembly, in which he was asked what he would do to make President Trump “feel welcome” when the anticipated visit comes in 2018.
Stating he had “previously called on Theresa May to cancel her ill-judged offer of a state visit to President Trump”, the mayor made clear he feels a visit by President Trump would be against the “interests and security of Londoners”. Khan said :”It is clear that any official visit here would not be welcomed.”
Referring back to recent retweets by President Trump of three videos purporting to show acts of Muslim violence, Mr. Khan remarked: “Many Brits who love both America and Americans, as I do, will see recent comments made by President Trump as hardly in tune with the special relationship between our two countries.”
Apparently, without irony, the mayor said it was because “London is a beacon of tolerance, acceptance and diversity” that the visit by President Trump should not go ahead, remarking that Trump is “completely incompatible with the values Londoners hold dear”.
While it has not been made clear precisely which security concerns concern Mr. Khan about a visit from the U.S. president, the Mayor had earlier in 2017 shrugged off the threat of terrorism as merely being “part and parcel” of city life. Mayor Khan has also presided over an astonishing rise of acid attacks in London, which has led to the city being crowned the acid attack capital of the world.
David Kurten, the elected member of the London assembly who issued the formal questions to Khan questioning his behaviour over Trump, said the mayor was exceeding his remit by getting involved in global politics, when in reality “his job is simply to run London’s transport network and police, but since he took office he has used his position to grandstand on international issues as though he were a Head of State. He is not.”
