London Mayor Kahn Says Trump Doesn’t Deserve Visit to UK, Not in ‘Same Class’ as Obama

The President of the United States might be the most powerful man in the world, but London’s current mayor says Donald Trump does not deserve a state visit to the United Kingdom.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan was interviewed on British radio station LBC where he reportedly said Trump was not “in the same class” as former President Barack Obama.

“Of course we should have a close relationship with the president of the United States, but we shouldn’t be rolling out the red carpet; we shouldn’t have a state banquet,” Fox News reports Khan said.

Obama had a state visit to the UK in 2011. His predecessor, President George W. Bush, did the same in 2003.

“History tells us only two presidents have had a state visit,” Khan added. “I think President Trump is certainly not in the same class as those two.”

Khan said he has a problem with comments Trump has made about women. “The impression is being given that you can get away from it — that you get a get-out-of-jail card. But it’s worse than that,” Khan said. “There’s a boasting and bragging, it’s almost like a green light for others to behave badly.”

The beef between Kahn and Trump is nothing new going all the way back to the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Then-candidate Trump made controversial comments about Islam when Khan became London’s first Muslim mayor.

But as the leader of a major European city, particularly in a country that has long been one of the U.S.’s strongest allies, what kind of ego must one have to suggest an American president has no business visiting his country in an official capacity?

Donald Trump was duly and fairly elected by the citizens of the United States. It was not Kahn’s choice to make. How dare he presume to speak for the American people and their interests.

How dare he not behave like a good and responsible mayor. Does Sadiq Khan really want to talk about who’s low class?

  • The people in the UK HATE Trump. They haven't forgotten what he said when Princess Diana was killed. Trump said his one regret was that he didn't "nail" her. And he was angry that he wasn't invited to Harry and Meghan's wedding???

    There will be mass protests in the streets of London when he goes there.

  • i never knew london had went to the mussies,but you know that's what their trying to do in usa.good lord willing,it will never happen.vote Republican and help save the good ole usa.MAGA

  • mainly because trump isn't a scuzlim like khan or obammyboy is. they made a big mistake over there, when they let one get into any political office, look at the u.s. congress.

  • kahn, the mayor of London, can stick to English business. If he sides with Manchu obama, he's not worth a visit. England has too much trouble with illegals now to be telling other nations how to tend their own store. America has two muslims, omar and ratshita, in Congress who maybe kahn can take in just so America will be rid of them. In some cities in England now, the muslim migrants have taken over to the point that the English can no longer safely go there any more. That's what kahn has done for, or to, England!
    ENGLAND, YOU HAVE BEEN SUCKERED!!!

  • England has been made a sucker of by kahn. I weep for you, England. You have been relieved of your own country. Because of the muslim takeover of your nation, you are no longer England.

  • kahn is muslim trash and I don't want him anywhere near our President Trump. kahn is not good enough to breathe the same air as Trump. The UK should remove kahn from British soil

  • Of course Donald Trump isn't in the same class as Obama. He's way, way more classy.

  • This vile reprobate does not speak for me, and the quicker this total eclipse is gone the better.
