Transcript: The Beef Continues, London's Mayor Calls for a Ban on Trump

The beef between London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan and President Trump is heating up, with Khan now urging the UK to cancel the president’s planned October state visit.

He spoke to UK’s London 4, saying "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 went on to say, like any close friend “you call them out when they are wrong.

And there are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong.” The rift all started when President Trump latched onto Khan’s reassuring Londoners they shouldn’t be alarmed to see a higher police presence following Saturday’s attack.

Directly after, Trump tweeted, “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed.’” The next day, he doubled down.

For her part, PM Theresa May voiced her support of the mayor saying quote “...Khan is doing a good job and it’s wrong to say anything else.” Khan’s calls for Trump to cancel his planned state visit is nothing new, petitions circulating have gained millions of signatures calling on the visit to be canceled for risk of embarrassing the Queen.
