Trump supporters demand London Mayor arrest

Supporters of US President Donald Trump have disrupted a speech by Sadiq Khan and called for the London Mayor to be arrested.

Mr Khan was about to start speaking to the Fabian Society in London when he was disrupted by protesters from a group called the White Pendragons who shouted pro-Trump and pro-Brexit slogans.

The Mayor sat down and flicked through a newspaper while police escorted the demonstrators away.

Mr Khan tweeted on Friday that Mr Trump had got the message that he was “not welcome” in London after the President cancelled a planned visit to open the new US embassy.

Mr Khan called the President’s policies “divisive” and described them as the “polar opposite” of London’s values.
