President Donald J. Trump took a swipe at London Mayor Sadiq Khan Monday morning ahead of a visit to the U.K., after Khan spoke out against him Sunday.
“[Sadiq Kahn] who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London, has been foolishly ‘nasty’ to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom. He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me……” Trump said on Twitter.
He continued, comparing Khan to New York City Mayor and 2020 presidential candidate Bill de Blasio.
“….Kahn reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job – only half his height. In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom, and am looking very much forward to my visit. Landing now!” he said.

Sunday, Khan wrote an opinion piece in The Guardian comparing Trump to 20th Century dictators, and Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-Un. Khan made it clear that he believes Trump is a racist, and a “fascist,” and said that it is “un-British to roll out the red carpet” for Trump.
Donald Trump is just one of the most egregious examples of a growing global threat. The far right is on the rise around the world, threatening our hard-won rights and freedoms and the values that have defined our liberal, democratic societies for more than seventy years. Viktor Orbán in Hungary, Matteo Salvini in Italy, Marine Le Pen in France and Nigel Farage here in the UK are using the same divisive tropes of the fascists of the 20th century to garner support, but are using new sinister methods to deliver their message. And they are gaining ground and winning power and influence in places that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago.

President Donald Trump Pledges “Orderly Transition” on January 20th
“The greatest first term in Presidential history.”
President Donald Trump pledged an orderly transition of power in a statement released early Thursday morning, appearing to recognize that Democrat Joe Biden would be sworn in as President in January.
“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th. I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”
The President’s announcement came minutes after the Senate certified electoral college slates voting for Joe Biden’s history. Vice President Mike Pence recognized Biden as the winner with 306 electoral college votes.
Twitter had temporarily silenced President Trump’s personal Twitter in the wake of a protest outside of the Capitol in which demonstrators entered. the halls of Congress. Longtime Trump aide Dan Scavino released the statement just before 4AM.
The recognition of a transition now heralds the end of President Donald Trump’s first term, with the President alluding to the possibility of securing the second term he was denied in his statement in a future campaign. Joe Biden will be inaugurated as President.
