After bashing London Mayor Sadiq Khan over the recent terrorist attacks, President Donald Trump is feeling the heat from political leaders in the United Kingdom.
After the recent terrorist attacks that left seven dead and dozens more injured in London, Trump attacked Khan and falsely accused Khan of telling people there was “no reason to be alarmed” by terrorist attacks. The fact is, the mayor told his citizens not to be alarmed when they see more armed policemen on London streets.
Trump also tried to take advantage of the situation and push his travel plan.
Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron released a statement on Monday urging British Prime Minister Theresa May to cancel Trump’s invitation to the country.
“Trump is an embarrassment to America,” Farron said. “In the wake of the recent terrorist attack, two of which killed people on the streets of London, Donald Trump decides to use his time in the Oval Office to attack the Mayor of London on Twitter.”
“Theresa May absolutely must withdraw the state visit,” he added. “This is a man insulting our national values at a time of introspection and mourning.”
“We need a special relationship not a supine relationship,” the statement concluded.
