After Trump criticized Sadiq Khan for his “no reason to be alarmed” statement, Khan is now calling on the British government to disinvite him, the President of the United States, from his upcoming state visit.
Appearing on Channel 4 News on Monday evening, Khan said Trump was wrong about “many things” and that his state visit should not go ahead.
“I don’t think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the USA in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for,” he said.
“When you have a special relationship it is no different from when you have got a close mate. You stand with them in times of adversity but you call them out when they are wrong. There are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong.”
The tables have turned: Instead of Trump trying to “ban Muslims,” a Muslim is trying to “ban Trump.” You can’t script this stuff.
