Why is Trump so obsessed with the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan? [VIDEO]
In an old video, Sadiq Khan hit back at President Donald Trump's repeated attacks on him and his city.
The U.S. President Donald Trump and the Pakistani-origin Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, have repeatedly clashed ever since Khan became the Mayor of London.
In an old video, Sadiq Khan hit back at President Donald Trump’s repeated attacks on him and his city. The Mayor said Trump’s remarks were “amplifying messages of hate” and boosting the far right.
During his 2018 visit to Britain, the U.S. President said Europe was “losing its culture” due to immigration. He also criticized Khan for crime and terrorism in London.
“You’ve got a mayor who has done a terrible job in London,” Donald Trump said in an interview, published during his 2018 U.K. trip. “I think he has done a poor job on terrorism and crime. Look at all of the horrible things that are going on there, with all of the crime being brought in.”
During the interview, Khan who is the first Muslim Mayor of London ,questioned why Trump always singled him out for criticism as terrorist attacks have also hit many other European countries.
Trump is a racist or an Islamophobic?
“It is not for me to say whether President Trump is a racist or an Islamophobic — that’s for other people to comment on,” Khan said. “However, it is for Trump to explain why [he] singled out the mayor of London when there have been terror attacks in Manchester, Nice, Brussels, Berlin, and Paris.”
“All of us are striving to fight with the evils of terrorism,” he added.
Speaking about Trump’s comments on immigration, Khan said, “They were “amplifying messages of hate” and “giving credibility to far-right groups.”
“What troubles people, including me, is the normalization of views that we find offensive,” he said.
The Mayor added, “I am not interested in continuing my long-running feud with Trump, which had been upsetting for my family.
“It takes two to tango,” he said. “You have the leader of the world, arguably the most powerful man in the world, apparently obsessed about the Mayor of London. I am not going to rise to some of the things that he has said because I want to demonstrate that we are bigger than that.”
