Default London mayor invites Trump to meet Muslims

New London Mayor Sadiq Khan has offered Donald Trump a personal tour of the city to show him how much Muslims are part of mainstream British life.

In an interview with HuffPost UK, Khan said he wanted to educate the “ignorant” billionaire by introducing him to his family and others of Islamic faith in the UK.

The newly-elected Mayor said that his mission was to prove to Trump that Muslims were not the “bad people” he saw on the TV news and were instead crucial in the fight against extremism.

Khan, who rejected Trump’s offer to exempt him from a ban on Muslim travel to the United States, also stressed that both the UK and the US had seen “huge benefits” from immigration.

And he pointed out that Trump himself was of migrant roots, adding “But for immigration, what would America be like today?”

It will be interesting to see if he'll take the mayor up on his invite.

Trump has been claiming he's been invited to Number 10 Downing Street. The British government, however, has denied that any such invite has been issued.

Perhaps Trump has confused the London mayor's office with that of the Prime Minister?

As much as I've disagreed with Cameron, I do believe that he is not foolish enough to invite Trump and treat him as a head of state.

It is only Trump who would do such a thing would expect to be treated like a head of state.
