London's New Muslim Mayor, Sadiq Khan accuses Donald Trump of making the world 'less safe' because of his 'ignorant view of Islam'


London's new Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan today accused Donald Trump of making both the UK and the US 'less safe' because of his 'ignorant view of Islam'. 

The astonishing attack came despite the Republican presidential candidate offering to exempt Mr Khan from his plan to ban Muslims from entering the United States.


Sadiq Khan, who became the first Muslim mayor of any major European capital, immediately rejected Trump's apparent attempt to mend fences

After Mr Khan was elected the first Muslim mayor of a major European capital last week, Mr Trump insisted he was 'happy' to see him win because he can 'lead by example'. 


And he revealed he will allow 'exceptions' to his controversial plans to bar all non-American Muslims from entering the US, which he first announced last December in the aftermath of the terror attacks in San Bernardino, California.  


But today Mr Khan emphatically rejected Mr Trump's apparent attempts to mend fences with London's Muslim community, telling the Republican: 'This isn't just about me - it's about my friends, my family and everyone who comes from a background similar to mine, anywhere in the world'. 

Mr Khan said his call to ban Muslims entering the US 'risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of the extremists.'


He added: 'Donald Trump and those around him think that western liberal values are incompatible with mainstream Islam - London has proved him wrong.'
