  • London Mayor Sadiq Khan says Pakistan faces major challenges but there is hope of improvement

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has told The Times that he has been placed under 24-hour police protection after being subjected to violent abuse on social media.

And in his LBC interview on Friday, Khan spoke about Trump's previous remarks about the allegations of sexual misconduct and assault by more than a dozen other women, all of which he has vigorously denied.

The London mayor maintained that mainstream politicians have contributed to the problem, in a nod to Boris Johnson's comments targeting the burka and saying it "gives permission to people who are on the fringes".

Though he did not name the former presidents, Khan was speaking about Barack Obama, who visited in 2011, and George W. Bush, who visited in 2003.

Trump visited the U.K.in July 2018 where he met with British Prime Minister Theresa May. "I think President Trump is certainly not in the same class as those two".

But Trump's official state trip was repeatedly delayed, with speculation that it was due to worries over the protests he might face. "Maintaining an important relationship with the United States does not require the pomp and ceremony of a State Visit".

A spat between Mr Trump and Mr Khan, London's mayor since May 2016, may not have helped the American leader's reputation in the British capital.

Even before Mr Trump was elected, Mr Khan, a Labour Party member, had criticised him, telling Time magazine that as he is a Muslim he would be stopped from going to the United States under Trump's proposed Muslim travel ban.

Mr Khan has called for Mr Trump's state visit invitation to be rescinded.

Past year thousands of protesters flooded the streets of London during the US President's two-day working trip to the UK.

Khan and Trump have feuded in the past. "People have got the impression, wrongly, that it's OK to use the p-word or the n-word or the y-word when it comes to Asians, black or Jewish people", the mayor lamented. "But it's worse than that", Khan said.
