The mayor of London is calling on Britain’s prime minister to cancel any official visits from President Donald Trump and to ask Trump to delete anti-Islam videos he shared on Twitter Wednesday.

“As the mayor of this great diverse city, I have previously called on Theresa May to cancel her ill-judged offer of a state visit to President Trump. After this latest incident, it is increasingly clear that any official visit at all from President Trump to Britain would not be welcomed,” London Mayor Sadiq Khan said in a statement posted on Twitter Thursday.

“The prime minister of our country should be using any influence she and her government claim to have with the President and his administration to ask him to delete these tweets and to apologise to the British people,” he continued.

 
 

On Wednesday, Trump shared three unverified anti-Muslim videos on Twitter that were posted by Jayda Fransen, a leader of the far-right fringe group Britain First. Fransen was recently convicted of religiously aggravated harassment. The videos — which have been mostly debunked — supposedly show acts of violence that Fransen claimed was ignited by Muslims.

What makes you think the videos are not credible?

The videos are real, the descriptions are not.  The boy beating up the other boy is not a Muslim.  The other two are from Syria (?) and several years old.  So when you ascribe false attributes to the videos, they are false.

How does "from Syria" make them invalid?

What makes the Mayor of London's opinion meaningful? Who does this guy think he is that he should tell the President what to do? Not that Trump is much of a president, but still ...

If the mayor of Los Angeles criticized the Queen of England would there be an outrage in England?

Probably.

But polite people don't go where they are not welcome.

they have already been proven to be fake - a least in terms of what Britain First claims they show. And Britain First is a discredited group. One of the people involved has already been convicted of a hate crime.

I've read elsewhere that the video of a young man being thrown off a roof is from Egypt, and the perpetrator was caught, charged and convicted.

Does that mean it wasn't true?

Discredited by who? ISIL?

now you're just trolling with silly questions. The British government has disavowed Britain First. Do your research
