UK: Johnson rules out cancelling Trump's state visit

Donald Trump's planned state visit to Britain should be canceled, London's mayor said Tuesday after the president repeatedly criticized him following the latest terrorist attack.

This is Trump's second tweet criticizing London's Muslim mayor after Saturday's terror attack on London Bridge that killed seven people and injured 48.

A spokesperson for Khan on Sunday called Trump's remark "ill-informed" and said it took the mayor's words out of context.

"In the circumstances where Donald Trump as president had a Muslim ban, had changed the policies of the U.S., the longstanding policies around refugees, in the circumstances where many British people disagree with many of Donald Trump's policies, we shouldn't be having a state visit", he said. I think the media wants to spin it that way. He challenged Khan to an intelligence test during the U.S election campaign, and in 2015 he said certain areas of London were no-go zones.

"I think Donald Trump was wrong in the things that he has said about Sadiq Khan". And as the president of the world's superpower, Mr Trump should be advised to do the same: think before he tweets. "I've been clear that we have a special relationship with the United States of America, it's very important we have a close relationship, it takes two to tango", he told ITV on Tuesday morning.

If you go in and create this player and he can do everything he wants to do, you're probably going to create Kevin Durant. The first encounter saw Durant his former Oklahoma City Thunder squad fall to King James and the Miami Heat back in 2012.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron, meanwhile, backed Khan's call for Trump's invitation to be rescinded, claiming the USA president "insults" national values at a time when the country is still grieving over Saturday night's ordeal.

During his interview on Channel 4, Khan told a reporter, "I just don't have time to answer tweets from Donald Trump".

"We will always stand shoulder to shoulder with our oldest and closest allies", said Khan.

"I think Sadiq Khan is doing a good job and it's wrong to say anything else - he's doing a good job", she said.

"We've been working with Sadiq Khan".

On Tuesday morning he reiterated his stance, telling the BBC that "there are so many things Donald Trump is wrong about, and in those circumstances I'm not in favour of a state visit".

Now however, Trump has been condemned by NY mayor Bill de Blasio, who says that Khan is doing an "extraordinary job".

Mr Johnson said that he saw "no reason" to rescind the offer of a state visit which the White House has already accepted.

"But what I will say is that as Mayor of London Sadiq was perfectly right to reassure the public about the presence of armed officers on the streets", he said.
