London Mayor Khan Says Trump Is Homophobic, Racist, and Sexist

Donald Trump is a homophobe, sexist, and racist declared far-left Mayor of London Sadiq Khan whereas urging his celebration to do extra to “call him out”.

The “special relationship” between the United Kingdom and the United States could also be in retailer for uneven waters as polls counsel former President Donald Trump is ready to return to the White House and the left-wing Labour Party is extensively projected to take energy in Westminster as the 2 international locations head in direction of normal elections later this 12 months.

While senior Labour figures seem to softening their stance in direction of Trump given the need for London to cooperate carefully with Washington, leftist London Mayor Sadiq Khan is trying to disgrace the celebration into brazenly criticising the present frontrunner within the U.S. presidential election.

Echoing Hillary Clinton’s notorious ‘basket of deplorables’ speech, Khan told the POLITICO web site: “I’m fairly clear, I perceive on Trump… He’s a racist. He’s a sexist. He’s a homophobe. And it’s essential, notably if you’ve acquired a particular relationship, that you just deal with them as a greatest mate.

“If my best mate was a racist, or a sexist or a homophobe, I’d call him out and I’d explain to him why those views are wrong.”

Khan, who, regardless of overseeing rampant crime in Britain’s capital metropolis, received a file third time period in workplace earlier this month, went on to say that he’s “worried” about one other Trump presidency.

“You know, I’ve been speaking to governors from America. I’ve been speaking to mayors from America. Of course, we’ll have a relationship whoever the president is. But we shouldn’t be literally rolling out a red carpet for a state visit,” he stated.

“It’s really important that we of course, have good relations with Democrats and Republicans. But I lost count of the amount of Republicans I’ve spoken to who are also worried about a Trump presidency.”

The leftist mayor has lengthy been at odds with Trump, with Khan demanding that then-President Trump be barred from having a state go to and assembly Queen Elizabeth II in 2017. Khan justified his opposition to the American chief by claiming that Trump used  “xenophobia, racism, and ‘otherness’ as an electoral tactic” whereas claiming that he solely cared about “White America”, and that Trump’s election slogan of America First truly meant “White America First”.

For his half, President Trump branded Khan as a “stone-cold loser” for failing to deal with knife crime and terrorism in London. Mr Trump reiterated his criticisms of the administration of London’s governance, saying earlier this month that mass migration has seen the British capital change into “no longer recognisable”.

The newest feedback from Khan come as his left-wing Labour Party is extensively projected to win on the subsequent normal election, having a double-digit lead over the governing Conservative Party in practically each ballot. Likewise, Mr Trump is constantly polling forward of incumbent Democrat President Joe Biden forward of November’s presidential election within the United States.

While President Trump was brazenly pro-British and a robust backer of a post-Brexit commerce deal between America and Britain, a mixture of the ineptitude of Boris Johnson’s Tory authorities and the Chinese coronavirus prevented a deal from being struck earlier than Trump left workplace. Conversely, anti-Brexit President Biden has refused to even entertain commerce talks with the UK, forcing London to strike offers with particular person states in America over the previous 4 years.

Thus, ought to the polling show correct, the Labour Party may very well be compelled to barter with Trump following the 2 elections for a brand new commerce cope with Britain’s prime buying and selling accomplice. Therefore, it’s unsurprising that figures corresponding to Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary David Lammy — a earlier critic of Trump’s — have appeared to supply an olive department to the presidential frontrunner, saying that Mr Trump has been “misunderstood”.

Longtime Trump ally and chief of the Brexit motion, Nigel Farage, has provided to function an envoy to Washington if the Labour Party and Mr Trump take energy to assist facilitate a commerce deal between the 2 international locations, nonetheless, there seems little curiosity inside the left-wing celebration to draft the populist campaigner.
