Queen Of England Embarrasses London’s Muslim Mayor After He Trashes Trump

Last week, London Mayor Sadiq Khan stated that he did not feel President Donald Trump didn’t deserve a state banquet at Buckingham Palace that was being hosted by Queen Elizabeth. It seems that Khan isn’t going to have to be bothered by Trump’s presence, as he isn’t going to be invited to the event.

The Daily Wire reports:

Queen Elizabeth has declined to invite Khan to Trump’s state dinner, snubbing London’s top administrator, apparently over fears he’ll be inappropriately aggressive toward the American leader, Express.co.uk reports.

The Daily Wire’s Paul Bois reported on Saturday that Khan has been an outspoken critic of Queen Elizabeth’s decision to host Trump for an official state visit, even going so far as to say that Trump doesn’t deserve the honor, despite being president of the United States.

Khan stated during a radio appearance last week, “Of course we should have a close relationship with the president of the United States, but we shouldn’t be rolling out the red carpet; we shouldn’t have a state banquet. History tells us only two presidents have had a state visit. I think President Trump is certainly not in the same class as those two.”

Khan’s office admitted on Sunday that the Mayor had not been invited to the celebration at Buckingham Palace, which was intended to mark President Trump’s first official trip to the United Kingdom, as well as memorialize the “‘special relationship’ forged between the two nations during the Second World War II on the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion,” according to the Daily Wire.

“The mayor has not been invited to the state banquet,” a spokesperson for Khan told the media.

Instead, Liberal Democratic leader Sir Vince Cable and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn both received invitations. Both Cable and Corbyn declined to attend.

When he spoke to the press, Cable stated that his RSVP was a “boycott.”

“We should not be beguiled by pomp and circumstance into hobnobbing with a man who is on record as a misogynist and a racist,” he said.

The Daily Wire explains, “There is no love lost between Khan and Trump; the pair have been at odds before Trump was even elected in 2016. Khan has repeatedly criticized Trump over his treatment of women and minorities, and lashed out at Trump over his domestic policies, particularly Trump’s attitude toward Islam. Khan is Muslim and is the first Muslim mayor of London.”

President Trump has condemned Khan’s “knife control” policies, which the London Mayor stated were intended to keep stabbings and random knifings to a minimum in the city center. Last year, Khan dug an even deeper hole for himself when he approved a “Baby Trump” float to fly over the city during Trump’s visit.

The Daily Wire explains:

It is not known whether “Baby Trump,” which has been on something of a “tour” of protests in the United States, will reappear as part of the protests expected to mark the president’s second trip to the U.K. and his first official state visit, but at least Khan won’t get the opportunity to sneak Baby Trump into dinner in his suit pocket.

Trump is set to make his arrival in the UK on the 4th or 5th of June. The Daily Wire explains that “he will attend not just a state banquet hosted by the Queen and other members of the British royal family at Buckingham Palace, but a host of other meetings with leaders of the U.K.’s conservative party. He will also participate in several events in the U.K. commemorating the role the British military played in hosting, training, and partnering with the American military ahead of the D-Day landings, June 6, 1944.”
