He’s not even in the White House or in any position to make a single foreign policy change, yet, Donald Trump is already showing one of America’s allys that he doesn’t care about them or their leaders.
After London elected its first Muslim mayor, Trump and the new mayor, Sadiq Khan, have gone back and forth hauling insults at each other.
“When he won, I wished him well,” he said of Sadiq Khan on ITV’s “Good Morning Britain.” “Now I don’t care about him.”
“Let’s see if he’s a good man,” the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee added. “It doesn’t make any difference to me how he does.”
London elected Khan on May 6, making the son of Pakistani immigrants the first Muslim mayor of a major Western capital.
Khan has since repeatedly criticized Trump’s remarks on Islam, arguing that the billionaire has “an ignorant” view of the religion and does not deserve to win the White House.
“I’m hoping that he’s not the guy who wins,” the Labor Party member said on May 11. “My message to Donald Trump and his team is that your views of Islam are ignorant.”
