Trump called the mayor of London “terrible and incompetent”

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — US President Donald Trump entered into an absentee brawl on Twitter with London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who criticized him for canceling his visit to Poland for events dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II.

Earlier, trump canceled a trip to Poland, citing the need to lead measures to eliminate the consequences of Hurricane Dorian. Khan, who participated in events in Poland, said in an interview with Politico that Trump was unable to come because “he was obviously busy – he was fighting a hurricane from a golf course.”

“The incompetent mayor of London, Sadik Khan, was worried that I played a very fast game of golf yesterday,” Trump wrote. At the same time, he wrote both the name and surname of the mayor with errors (Sadiq Khan).

According to Trump, while others can play for hours or weeks to go play golf, he quickly walks through one of his fields. “Very inexpensive – President (Barack) Obama would fly to Hawaii for this,” Trump said.

The current US president has criticized Obama for expensive golf trips in the past. Trump critics claim that after the election, he himself forces taxpayers to spend many millions of dollars on ensuring his safety on vacation and on travel expenses.

Trump also advised Khan to focus on the fight against crime in London, which, according to the American president, “completely out of control.”

“People are afraid to just walk the streets. He is a terrible mayor who should not interfere in our affairs!” – concluded Trump.

Khan and Trump have repeatedly exchanged barbs in absentia. On his first visit to London, Trump called Khan “a complete loser,” and he compared the US president to a tantalizing schoolboy.
