Responding to President Donald Trump’s latest Twitter outburst against London mayor, Britain’s Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said Prime Minister Theresa May must cancel the Trump’s official visit to United Kingdom.
“Theresa May absolutely must withdraw the state visit. This is a man insulting our national value at the time of introspection and mourning,” Faroon tweeted on Monday.
President Trump criticised London Mayor Sadiq Khan on Twitter following the London attacks which drew backlash from political parties and civil society in Britain. He tweeted:
Earlier Khan had said Britons should not be alarmed to see a higher police presence on the streets of London following the incident.
“Trump is an embarrassment to America,” the Lib-Dem leader said, adding, “In the wake of three recent terrorist attacks, two of which killed people on the street of London, Donald Trump decides to use his time in Oval Office to attack the Mayor of London over twitter.”
Farron added that Sadiq Khan has shown dignity and leadership. “We need a special relationship not a supine relationship.”
