We’re pretty sure we don’t have to remind London Mayor Sadiq Khan that one of the ideals America was founded upon was freedom from England, and we treasure that freedom more and more every time we see British police post a photo of the latest gardening tool they’ve confiscated from some elderly woman.
To announce President Trump’s impending visit to Great Britain, Sky News rolled out a promo showing the shadow of the “Baby Trump” blimp creeping over the country’s landscape (as if … have you seen how big that “blimp” actually is?), so it’s no surprise that Sky News was happy to sit down with Khan so he could read off his list of grievances with Trump … as one of America’s closest friends, you see. It was sort of an intervention for someone he loves very much.
From rolling back women's reproductive rights to defending white supremacists and far-right nationalists – President Trump's behaviour flies in the face of ideals America was founded upon.

Newsflash: It’s individual state legislatures “rolling back” women’s reproductive rights, and the whole #CharlottesvilleHoax reference just proves he’s not arguing in good faith. But of course, he isn’t … he’s a flaming liberal who can’t protect his own city from terrorism or knife crime.
He's certainly not your friend, he has got good judgement of character.

Not all Londoners agree with you like you seem to think! Please don't speak on my behalf.

So glad you are the mayor of London. I hope you are never allowed even within the water boundaries of the US, much less step foot in this great country.
— Marcus (@epman62) June 6, 2019
Please stop it, Sadiq. No one is falling for this drivel. You have behaved abominably. Stop trying to backtrack and be relevant. It ain't happening.
White supremacists? Do bore off!
And London is open in spite of you, not because of you. #StayAwayFromIslam

From supporting Sharia law to defending Jihadists and anti-semites, Sadiq Khan's behaviour flies in the face of ideals by any moral standard.
We have a duty to speak out.
— TipToe (@MoonlightSite) June 6, 2019
As your friend Sadiq, I must say to you. Did the terrorists you defended in court support the ideals you are talking about? They must have done otherwise you would have spoke out or not defended them? Farrakhan is a racist so why did you want him in the country? #hypocrite

A Muslim immigrant living in Britain lecturing Americans on what American ideals are?
That’s new. Very stupid, and new.

Stop clutching at straws for your [email protected] of disrespecting the office of President of the USA 🇺🇸 and insulting the American people, also doing this on the 75th anniversary of D Day, were thousands of American soldiers laid down their lives fighting for our freedom 🇬🇧
— mike (@mike33202) June 6, 2019
You were totally out of order & disrespectful towards @realDonaldTrump especially as it was the D Day commemorations.
You embarrassed us & yourself on the world stage to appease your followers. pic.twitter.com/fyglcCxCVl

That’s right. I recall Abraham Lincoln’s rousing speech in favour of abortion on demand, battling against transphobia, reminding people that getting killed is part and parcel of living in a city…..

“The ideals America was founded upon.”
Ah yes, killing children in the womb and bringing in millions of illegal migrants from Mexico were what the founding fathers wanted.
— Dolan Drumpf (@_SNB88_) June 6, 2019
America was not founded to serve as an abortion factory. America was founded on freedom. Free speech is the cornerstone of freedom, and free speech in the UK is dead under #SadiqKhan as he assigns 900 officers to ‘hate crime’ duty, which requires monitoring “speech”! #tyrant

Trumps state visit was a complete success

Stop deflecting from your responsibilities, as London Mayor. Your job is to administrate, promote & protect London & all of it’s residents, it’s visitors, infrastructure & transport
You are falling short in all of that areas. Please concentrate on the job you’re paid to perform.

Here's a thought ….why don't you focus your energy on solving the knife crime problem happening on your watch.
— Carol Boyle (@CarolBoyle2) June 6, 2019
What are you doing about the increasing crime in London then?
— Ex-Army Paz 49 (@PlisskenVon) June 7, 2019
Whilst you continuously turn a blind eye towards rising knife crime, acid attacks, terrorist attacks, poor living quality and poor pollution. Then again it’s all part and parcel of living in a big city isn’t that right
— JAKE BURRAGE (@JAKEB1993) June 6, 2019
Stop trying to be a Politician and focus on stopping the stabbings and acid attacks in London instead. You don’t speak for all Brits. Trump is a great leader and will be remembered for a very long time. Nobody will remember you 5 mins after you’ve left your role
