Queen Elizabeth continues to utilize her significant influence of late over matters of state, this time with a state visit invite to President Trump followed up by a snub of London’s increasingly controversial mayor, Sadiq Khan. Mayor Khan has been an outspoken critic of both President Trump and “traditional” England. The Queen’s most recent move has only caused rumors of her desire to see Khan pushed out of office to intensify as both she and millions of Brits apparently grow increasingly tired of his anti-England sentiment.
Via UK Express:
SADIQ KHAN has been shunned by the Queen, who has not invited the London Mayor to US President Donald Trump’s state banquet at Buckingham Palace.
Labour’s Mr. Khan was left off the guest list by the Monarch, despite announcing he would be happy to meet the American. Mr. Khan’s spokesman, Jonathan Weisgard, told Newsweek: “The mayor has not been invited to the state banquet.” Invitations were sent to Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who both declined to attend.
Mr. Khan and Mr. Trump have clashed on numerous occasions in the run-up to the President’s second state visit, the first being last year.
Mr. Khan, who has been condemned by Mr. Trump for London’s knife crime epidemic, agreed to allow a blimp of the Republican to fly over the Capital in protest to his last visit.
In protest of Mr. Khan’s decision to allow the blimp to fly over London, a second blimp was made that also depicted the major as a giant baby was flown over the city.
Whether the so-called ‘Trump Baby Blimp’ will be used again for the state visit planned for early next month remains unknown.
President Trump also locked horns with Mr. Khan over his controversial decision to attempt to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the US in response to terrorism.
Buckingham Palace confirmed last month that Trump had accepted an invite for a three-day state visit in June to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
He will visit London as well as Portsmouth during his trip.
Protests have been announced by groups against the trip, which takes place between June 3 and 5.
“Everyone who loves what America was and could be again should read this book.”
