London Mayor slams Trump for golfing during Hurricane Dorian
U.S. President Donald Trump has once again been blasted. This time, it is London Mayor Sadiq Khan who criticized the President for golfing while the State of Emergency has been declared on several U.S. states that Hurrican Dorian will be heading to.
In an interview, Khan told Politico in a sarcastic tone that President Trump is "clearly busy dealing with a hurricane out on the golf course."
Their animosity towards each other started from the time President Trump took office in 2017. To which Khan and the President took turns in criticizing each other. The London mayor said that President Trump is a "global poster-boy for white nationalism". This was in an essay that was published last Saturday.
Khan told Politico on Sunday that
These people have been inspired by mainstream politicians who subscribe to their point of view. He [Trump] is a guy who amplifies racist tweets; amplifies the tweets of fascists; says things that are deeply objectionable. If I don't stand up and call that out, I think I'm doing a disservice to Londoners who chose me as their mayor
President Trump has declared the State of Emergency for Georgia last Sunday as Hurricane Dorian heads towards Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina. The hurricane missed Puerto Rico and Florida's southern parts.
However, it left devastating effects on the Bahamas and boe down some portions of the Eastern Seaboard. Several federal officials warned people to expect strong winds to affect the areas under State of Emergency this week.
