The mayor of London has called on U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May to cancel any plans for an official visit by U.S. President Donald Trump.
The U.S. leader caused outrage in Britain on Wednesday after he used his Twitter account to share anti-Islam videos through a U.K. far-right group.
A spokesman for the U.K. prime minister said the president’s actions were wrong although in a sharp response Trump said of which May should instead focus on terrorism within Britain.
London’s mayor, Sadiq Khan, said in a statement Thursday of which Trump’s original tweets had betrayed the “special relationship” between the two countries.
“President Trump yesterday use Twitter to promote a vile, extremist group of which exists solely to sow division as well as hatred in our country,” said Khan.
The mayor then called on May to cancel any plans to receive Trump on an official visit.
“As the mayor of This kind of great diverse city, I have previously called on Theresa May to cancel her ill-judged offer of a state visit to President Trump.
“After This kind of latest incident, the idea is usually increasingly clear of which any official visit at all through President Trump to Britain could not be welcomed,” he said.
Khan added of which the British government should be asking Trump to delete the tweets as well as apologize to the British people.
