Going for a refreshing take on President Trump, London Mayor Sadiq Khan bucked the typical Adolf Hitler comparison and opted for an equally dramatic comparison to ISIS.
Khan’s reaction came in response to Trump expanding the so-called Muslim ban in which he would make an exception for the Londonistan mayor. At a Labour party conference in Brighton, Khan said, “My view was firstly ‘I’m not exceptional’ and secondly ‘Think about what you are saying.’ Because what you are saying is not dissimilar to what Daesh or so-called IS says.”
“They say that there is a clash of civilizations, it is not possible to be a Muslim and a westerner, and the west hates us. And you are inadvertently playing their game, you are helping them,” Khan added. “I’m a westerner, but also a very proud Muslim. There are some people who want to divide our communities. I’m not going to let them.”
Khan said President Trump is “ignorant” about Islam and has a “wrong impression” of the religion, The Sun noted.
The mayor doesn’t sound keen on visiting with Trump, saying, “I think at a time when the President of the United States is doing and saying so many things that we disagree with, the idea of just rolling out the red carpet and having a state visit is wrong."
But Mayor Khan is confident if he did sit with the president, “I’m happy to educate people who are ignorant.”
