Although Donald Trump’s “ban all Muslims” policy has not gone over well with sensible Americans, much of the Republican Party – even some in Congress – have endorsed and signed on to his nonsense. And now the first Muslim mayor of London and one of America’s biggest ally is speaking out.
“I want to go to America to meet with and engage with American mayors,” Sadiq Khan, London’s new mayor told Time magazine in an interview conducted after he won the mayoral race over the weekend.
“If Donald Trump becomes the president, I’ll be stopped from going there by virtue of my faith, which means I can’t engage with American mayors and swap ideas,” he added.
Khan, whose opponents sought to characterize him as a radical, accused his rivals of taking a page “straight out of the Donald Trump playbook.”
“Conservative tacticians thought those sort of tactics would win London and they were wrong. I’m confident that Donald Trump’s approach to politics won’t win in America,” he told Time.0
