U.S. President Donald Trump once again criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan on Saturday, saying he is a “disaster” and will “only get worse” after three people were slain in the city in less than 20 hours.

Trump retweeted a tweet by the right-wing commentator Katie Hopkins who called London “stab city” and said “this is Khan’s Londonistan,” a phrase used to describe the city’s failure to tackle Muslim extremists.

“LONDON needs a new mayor ASAP. Khan is a disaster – will only get worse!” Trump said on Twitter.

Trump called Khan, a Muslim of Pakistani heritage, a “stone-cold loser” earlier this month after the mayor criticized the British government for inviting Trump for a state visit and compared him to 20th century fascists.

Trump’s feud with Khan dates back several years. Khan has criticized Trump’s effort to ban travelers from Muslim countries, while the president has castigated the mayor for his handling of a 2017 terrorist attack on the London bridge that killed 11 people.

I’d like to ask Mayor Khan’s full opinion on the Rotherham gang-rape/sex slavery/prostitution rings which were conducted for decades by Pakistanis and against underage girls, both white and Pakistani.

Perhaps a “disarmament” policy of castration and “stubbing” would have worked.

Let’s not forget that England has no 2nd, nor 1st amendment. Despite draconian gun laws people are still getting shot.

Now they’ve outlawed knives and stabby things like screwdrivers.

The reason this sounds so much like the failed gun-control policies in the US, q.v. Chicago, is because they are all failures by NOT addressing the actual criminals.

Very, very sloppy reporting by Andrew MacAskill – “Khan has criticized Trump’s effort to ban travellers from Muslim countries…”: Donald Trump did no such thing; there are 60+ muslim countries in the world; and the list contained just five of those countries plus two others – hardly a blanket decision to “ban travellers from muslim countries”…. The list was drawn-up by the Obama administration to high-light those countries whose populations contained a significant terrorist threat. As with the Mexican border, if Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, or Obama said that the border needed to be policed or fenced, then the media… Read more »

The photo is telling: not an English people. Once the empire where “the sun never sets”: ruined by a number of things topped with turning away Jews in their time of need, and the Godless Rock amusic doctrine.

The mayor is projecting his actions when calling President Trump a 20th century fascist. The Mayor is a member of worldwide fascists – Muslims. A quick look at their actions all over the world, against anyone not a ‘true believer’, shows that. Unless they get rid of this Muslim mayor, things will only get worse.
