London’s Leftist Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has been outspoken about President Trump’s Executive Order restricting travel from 7 countries. Nigel Farage has something to say about it.
Khan is working on
banning rescinding the invitation for President Trump from the United Kingdom for a State visit later this year.
Cue the irony in 3, 2, 1…
Khan is hosting the largest ever gathering of ambassadors and dignitaries at City Hall on Tuesday night, where he is expected to tell his guests: “I’ve been clear that President Trump’s actions are unacceptable for a liberal, open democracy, like America, and we can’t be seen to be endorsing them in any way,” the Evening Standard has reported.
He will add: “As an international community, I believe we have a responsibility to show moral leadership, and so my ask of you tonight is this: join me in speaking out against this ban and condemning it for what it really is – discriminatory, self-defeating and completely un-American.
“Targeting people for no reason other than their faith or their country of birth is cruel, prejudiced and counterproductive.”
However, dignitaries from 11 of the 16 countries who permanently block travel by Israeli passport holders – Bangladesh, Brunei, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Pakistan, Sudan, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen – will be present at the meeting. None have attracted censure from the mayor over their bans…
To this, Nigel Farage, former UKIP leader who pushed for Brexit, tweeted:

Do you think Khan will take some time out to condemn those 11 countries banning Israelis?
I’m guessing no.
