London Mayor Sadiq Khan is calling on the British government to cancel President Donald Trump’s London visit.
Khan, who is London’s first ever Muslim mayor, took offense to Trump mocking him in a series of tweets after the terrorist attacks in London.
In one tweet on Sunday, Trump criticized Khan for telling Brits “There’s no reason to be alarmed.”

Khan’s office later tweeted that the American president misquoted Khan. But Trump accused the mayor of making a “pathetic excuse”.

In an appearance on Channel 4 News on Monday morning, Mayor Khan said President Trump was “wrong about many things,” and he said London should cancel Trump’s state visit.
“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,” Khan said.
“There are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong.”
Khan previously told the citizens of London that they should get used to terrorism because terror attacks are “part and parcel of living in a big city”.
