washingtonexaminer.com reports: Overseas supporters of President Trump disrupted a speech on Saturday by London Mayor Sadiq Khan, a day after the outspoken Trump critic said the president had “got the message” that he is not welcome in the United Kingdom.
Khan was forced to pause his remarks at a Fabian Society conference in London after a group of protesters from the far-right White Pendragons group began yelling for the mayor to be arrested, while waiving American flags.
“Ladies and gentlemen, we’re here today to make a non-violent, peaceful citizen’s arrest,” shouted one of the protesters, according to local media.
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.

The Crime Report Is In On Sadiq Khan's London - Check Out The "New Normal"
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.
