Back in January, Khan demanded the cancellation of Trump’s state visit to UK, stating that he was “quite clear, this ban is cruel, this ban is shameful, while this ban is in place we should not be rolling out the red carpet for President Trump.”
Instead Khan would rather see the red carpet rolled out for his jihadist chums:
Khan was reported by the UK’s Spectator to have known links to “extremists”: “Some of these associations date back to his time as a director of Liberty and a human rights lawyer – trying to get the UK to lift its ban on the American Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has described Jews as ‘blood-suckers’ and called Hitler ‘a very great man,’ and speaking at the same conference as Sajeel Abu Ibrahim, a member of the now proscribed Islamist organisation that trained the 7/7 bomber Mohammad Sidique Khan.
Yet Khan, as expected, played the usual victim card, stating: “If you somehow think it is not possible to be a Muslim and a proud westerner I am happy to disabuse you of that idea.” Given his unsavory company, how proud a Westerner can Khan really be? Shall we put this one to a vote?
“London Mayor Says There Should Be ‘No Red Carpet for Trump’, Claims President Insulted Muslims”, by Virginia Hale, Breitbart, July 18, 2017:
London Mayor Sadiq Khan has said it would not be “appropriate” for Donald Trump to make a state visit to the UK, claiming that Britons oppose the U.S. President’s policies.
“State visits are different from a normal visit and at a time when the President of the USA has policies that many in our country disagree with, I am not sure it is appropriate for our government to roll out the red carpet,’ the mayor of London told CNN.
Prime Minister Theresa May offered the U.S. leader a state visit to Britain seven days after his presidential inaugural, when she became the first foreign leader to visit the White House, which last week confirmed that the visit will take place in 2018.
Khan did not rule out meeting President Trump if given the opportunity, having lashed out at the U.S. premier on several occasions, telling CNN: “If someone has views that I think can be changed I am ready to play my role.
“If you somehow think it is not possible to be a Muslim and a proud westerner I am happy to disabuse you of that idea, whether you are a reporter for CNN or Donald Trump.”
Khan previously demanded Trump’s state visit be cancelled after the president slammed London’s Muslim mayor last month for telling residents of the city there is “no reason to be alarmed” following the London Bridge terror attack which killed seven and injured dozens more.
Speaking to Channel 4 News, Khan said the president’s policies — his then-proposed temporary travel ban on immigration from six nations in the Middle East and North Africa on grounds of securing the safety of American citizens — “go[es] against everything we stand for”.
On a tour of North America last September, two months before the presidential election, Khan said he was a “big fan” of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and claimed that Trump’s views on Islamic terror attacks “play into the hands” of the Islamic State……
