Sub-municipality London refuses Trump coming
london - The London borough of Greenwich does not feel like receiving US President Trump on its territory. The council of the district has formally decided that Donald Trump is not welcome if the state visit continues next year.
She called on the government to withdraw the invitation for the visit.
Greenwich reacts to the tweets that Trump shared of an extreme right-wing grouping in Britain, Britain First.
'The council also sees with sadness that the president is prejudiced about women and ethnic minorities, which has resulted in clear examples of divisions and hatred in the United States,' the newspaper The Independent quotes from the statement.
Although Prime Minister May condemned the retweets, she did not withdraw the invitation. Moreover, the American ambassador in Great Britain has invited Trump for a working visit when the new embassy is opened early next year. Incidentally, it is not in Greenwich.
The mayor of London is also not waiting for the state visit. Sadiq Khan has already called several times to abandon it. He has repeatedly collided with Trump, including after attacking him through Twitter after attacks in the city.
