President Trump arrived in London Monday morning as part of his European trip culminating in D-Day commemoration ceremonies in France; meeting Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.
“Trump could be seen chatting with members of the Guard of Honor as the rest of the American delegation, from a terrace, observed the elaborate arrival ceremony, complete with the playing of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner.’ Royal gun salutes were fired from nearby Green Park and from the Tower of London as part of the pageantry accompanying an official state visit,” reports Fox News.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan labeled Trump a “fascist” and “global threat” hours before his arrival; escalating a feud between the two leaders that stretches back years.
“@SadiqKhan, who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London, has been foolishly ‘nasty’ to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom. He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me,” tweeted the President.
“Kahn reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job – only half his height. In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom, and am looking very much forward to my visit. Landing now!” he added.

British Prime Minister Theresa May will host the visit, but will resign her position within days following her failure to deliver Brexit years after the UK’s referendum.
The Prime Minister’s political future has been in jeopardy for months after several high-ranking members of her cabinet quit following her ‘Soft’ Brexit proposal.
“Whatever our background, the colour of our skin, or who we love. We stand together. And together we have a great future. Our politics may be under strain, but there is so much that is good about this country. So much to be proud of. So much to be optimistic about. I will shortly leave the job that it has been the honour of my life to hold — the second female prime minister but certainly not the last. I do so with no ill-will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love,” said May.
LONDON FALLING: Sadiq Khan UNDER FIRE for ‘PATHETIC’ Response to Murder Spree
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan found himself in hot-water from residents and politicians over the weekend, with critics slamming the left-leaning leader over his “pathetic” response to a stunning surge in violent crime across the United Kingdom’s capital.
According to Fox News, former Mayor of London and ex-Foreign Minister Boris Johnson penned a scathing assessment of Khan’s policies in the Daily Telegraph, calling Khan a “twinkle-toed mover on the movie premiere red carpet” who is largely ignoring the escalating crisis.
“Sadiq Khan may be a twinkle-toed mover on the movie premiere red carpet, but his pirouettes on the subject of knife crime are a positive wonder. He blames funding (when he was left with a large war chest by me); he blames the Tory Government; he blames society. He blames everyone but himself, when it is his paramount duty to keep Londoners safe,” Johnson wrote. “It is a pathetic performance.”
Johnson’s comments echo those of President Trump who slammed Khan during a recent interview with the Sun newspaper, saying “You have a mayor who has done a terrible job in London. He has done a terrible job.”

ANARCHY IN THE UK: London Mayor Says Next US President ‘Can’t Be Trump’
London Mayor Sadiq Khan escalated his war-of-words with the White House this week; bizarrely asserting the next President of the United States “Can’t be Trump.”
The outspoken Trump critic was speaking with the London Evening Standard when he was asked to comment on the current state of the 2020 election.
“I think the next president hasn’t declared yet. I think it’s not going to be Trump. It can’t be Trump,” said Khan. “We’ve got to recognise those people who voted for Donald Trump and made him president think he’s doing an OK job.”
“I’m clearly hopeful it’s a Democratic candidate becoming the next president. What happens in America matters for the rest of the world. I’m hoping those Americans who didn’t get involved in the last campaign get involved, get registered,” he added.
