Sadiq Khan came under pressure this morning after a furious attack from US president Donald Trump last night, who hit out at the London mayor for failing on terrorism.

BBC Radio 4’s Martha Kearney questioned why the Labour politician had permitted a giant 20-foot blimp portraying Mr Trump as a baby as part of today’s large-scale anti-Trump protests in London.

Mr Khan and the US president have been embroiled in a long-running feud after Mr Trump blamed the London mayor for a spate of terror attacks in the capital.

In an explosive interview with The Sun published last night the US president accused the London mayor of doing “a bad job” on terrorism.

He complained that Mr Khan had given permission for the ‘Trump baby’ blimp to fly over Westminster this morning.

Mr Trump said that he was pleased to be spending little time in the capital on his three-day trip as a result.

The US leader added: “I used to love London as a city. I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?”

In the interview released last night, Mr Trump also said: “Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place. Look at what is going on in London.

“I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism.

“I think he has done a bad job on crime if you look, all of the horrible things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in.

“You have a mayor who has done a terrible job in London. He has done a terrible job.”

Kearney used these outraged remarks to grill the London mayor, who responded by citing free speech.

Mr Khan penned an article in the Evening Standard where he warned that “far-Right and nationalist populism is on the rise”.

In a remark directed to the US president, Mr Khan added: “This includes hatred of those who are different and the deliberate stoking of people’s basest fears and insecurities, instead of trying to address them; a constant focus on that which divides us, rather than that which unites us; and the awful scapegoating of some of the most vulnerable people in our societies. This offends many Londoners.”

Kearney pointed to this remark in her interview, saying: “In effect, you compared Trump’s policies to the Nazis. You said ‘Politics, ideas and views that we thought were rejected and defeated after the Second World War have resurfaced’. This is our closest ally.”
