Donald Trump arrives in the UK

Donald Trump has arrived in the U.K. and made Buckingham Palace his first stop where he will meet with Prince Charles and have tea with Queen Elizabeth II.

Just hours before his arrival, President Trump was busy on Twitter launching an attack on London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who has been a vocal critic of the president. Trump tweeted, “.@SadiqKhan, who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London, has been foolishly ‘nasty’ to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom. He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me.”

Trump also took the opportunity to compare Khan to another mayor and frequent critic of his, New York’s Bill de Blasio. He wrote, “Kahn reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job – only half his height. In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom, and am looking very much forward to my visit. Landing now!”

Hot Takes:

  • Trump did all of this tweeting during his flight to London.
  • Protesters are already out in full force. Every effort is being made to keep them far away from the president.
  • Trump is also scheduled to meet with outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May.
