London: once a trademark English city, full of history and culture, is now overrun with migrants, knife crime, and violence on the streets underneath the watch of its liberal mayor, Sadiq Khan.
Yet, Khan seems to think he is somehow superior to President Trump, whose presidency has led to America, while not perfect, being the best it has in decades as our patriotic, people-minded president works to continually improve all aspects of American life.
So, when Sadiq Khan criticized President Trump for playing a quick round of golf during Hurricane Dorian, our no-nonsense president was not going to stand for it.
President Trump had canceled a trip to Poland to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Holocaust to instead focus his efforts on monitoring the hurricane, which is set to hit our East Coast, but triggered Khan by being spotted at his golf course.
Khan commented in an interview at the Poland ceremony that President Trump skipped,
“He’s clearly busy dealing with a hurricane out on the golf course.”
Not letting Khan's hypocritical criticism of himself slight his honor, President Trump hit back, pointing out the facts of the matter that Mayor Khan chose to ignore.
Here's President Trump's brilliant response tweet:
Here's more on the situation from USA Today:
Mocked by the mayor of London for playing golf amid hurricane preparations this past weekend, President Donald Trump said Monday he played "very fast" and told the mayor to mind his own business.
"The incompetent Mayor of London, Sadique Kahn, was bothered that I played a very fast round of golf yesterday," Trump tweeted, misspelling the first name of his critic. In a follow-up post, Trump said, "He is a terrible mayor who should stay out of our business!"
Renewing his frequent battle with Trump, Mayor Sadiq Khan noted that Trump canceled a trip to Poland to monitor preparations for Hurricane Dorian as it menaced the East Coast of the United States.
“He’s clearly busy dealing with a hurricane out on the golf course,” Khan told Politico.
In his counterattack, Trump said Khan should worry about "knife crime" in London, which he said is totally "out of control." Trump also threw in another barb at his predecessor, former President Barack Obama.
Politico has more details on the circumstances surrounding the Khan-Trump feud:
The tweets come after Khan hit the president over his golf habit. Trump canceled a weekend trip to Poland in which he was set to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Nazi invasion that marked the beginning of World War II. Instead, Trump stayed home to monitor the movement of Hurricane Dorian, which left a path of destruction through the Bahamas on Monday and is now on track to hit parts of the East Coast throughout the week. Despite canceling his trip, Trump was spotted at his Virginia golf club two days in a row.
In an interview with POLITICO London Playbook from Warsaw for the ceremonies, Khan mocked Trump’s scrapped plans, saying that “he’s clearly busy dealing with a hurricane out on the golf course.”
Khan also took aim at Trump's incendiary rhetoric, accusing the president of emboldening white supremacists.
“These people have been inspired by mainstream politicians who subscribe to their point of view,” he said, adding that Trump “is a guy who amplifies racist tweets; amplifies the tweets of fascists; says things that are deeply objectionable. If I don’t stand up and call that out I think I’m doing a disservice to Londoners who chose me as their mayor.”
