London Mayor Sadiq Khan, a Muslim, warned:
Sadiq Khan said on ITV’s Good Morning Britain wrote:Donald Trump is doing the job of extremist groups like ISIS through his ignorant and divisive views on Islam.
By giving the impression there is a clash of civilizations, are you doing the job of Daesh and extremists for them by saying the West hates Islam.
The vast majority of Muslims are law abiding, peaceful. I accept there are a small minority of people who do bad things, they are terrorists, they are criminals, using the name of Islam to justify what they do.
My election as the first Muslim mayor of a major Western capital showed hope trumps fear and unity trumps division.
With the greatest respect to Donald Trump, your views on Islam are ignorant. Western liberal values and mainstream Islam are compatible.
His policies would mean Leicester, the Premier League champions, couldn’t take Riyad Mahrez to America. They’d mean Nadiya Hussain, the Great British Bake Off champion, couldn’t go to America.
In the same program Monday, Trump said:
Donald Trump said on ITV’s Good Morning Britain wrote:Khan is very rude to have criticized me and challenged me to an IQ test. I am not stupid!
When Khan won, I wished him well. Now I don’t care about him.
I’m not stupid, I can tell you that right now, just the opposite. I don’t think I’m a divisive person, I’m a unifier, unlike our president now.
