It comes despite the row between the US President and Theresa May grows after he retweeted videos shared by far-right group Britain First.

The statement from Sadiq Khan adds another notable voice to the growing list of leading British officials who have expressed outrage over Trump's retweets, which have created an worldwide incident and opened a rift between the USA and its closest ally.

Earlier the House of Commons held an hourlong emergency debate to discuss Trump's online activity as home secretary Amber Rudd was forced to the House of Commons to discuss the United States president's actions, which have given the anti-immigrant group global media attention. Khan has repeatedly called for Britain to withdraw an invitation for Trump to visit - and his stance appeared to gain backing amid the outrage against the president.

Trump triggered a diplomatic incident yesterday after he re-tweeted a video from Jayda Fransen, deputy leader of Britain First, who has been charged with "threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour" for speeches made at a rally in Belfast.

"I'm not sure every single video the president has viewed", she said.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan also denounced Mr Trump's posts as a "betrayal of the special relationship". "It beggars belief that the President of our closest ally doesn't see that his support of this extremist group actively undermines the values of tolerance and diversity that makes Britain so great".

"On Thursday, Sanders was asked if Trump knew who Fransen was before he shared the controversial videos".

"@Theresa_May, don't focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom", Trump tweeted late Wednesday. "That is that we have a real threat of extreme violence and terrorism, not just in this country but across the globe, particularly in Europe".

On Thursday, a spokesperson at Downing Street said May is standing by her criticism of the President, but said the offer of a state visit seems to be on track. "But the U.S. is one of our longest, closest and most trusted allies. Further details will be set out in due course".

An official spokesperson said: 'Britain First seeks to divide communities through their use of hateful narratives which peddle lies and stoke tensions. British Muslims are peaceful and law abiding citizens.

In a further sign of the seriousness of the row, Britain's ambassador to Washington, Sir Kim Darroch, said he had raised the Government's concerns with the White House.

In pointed remarks apparently aimed at Mr Trump on Thursday, Mrs May said it was essential to deal with terrorism and extremism "from whatever source they come".

British leaders are playing a nuanced game, analysts said, trying to call out Trump when they believe he crosses a line but also trying to stay in his good graces as the country moves toward exiting the European Union.
