London Mayor Sadiq Khan sad, last week, that he didn’t believe President Donald Trump was worthy of a state banquet hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace. It turns out, though, he won’t have to suffer through seeing Trump honored by the royal family.

Queen Elizabeth has declined to invite Khan to Trump’s state dinner, snubbing London’s top administrator, apparently over fears he’ll be inappropriately aggressive toward the American leader, Express.co.uk reports.

Khan has been an outspoken critic of Queen Elizabeth’s decision to host Trump for an official state visit, even going so far as to say that Trump doesn’t deserve the honor, despite being President of the United States.

“Of course we should have a close relationship with the president of the United States, but we shouldn’t be rolling out the red carpet; we shouldn’t have a state banquet,” Khan told a radio program last week. “History tells us only two presidents have had a state visit. I think President Trump is certainly not in the same class as those two.”

Sunday, the mayor’s office admitted that he was not asked to join in the celebration, meant not just to commemorate Trump’s first official visit to the United Kingdom, but also to memorialize the “special relationship” forged between the two nations during the Second World War II on the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion.

“The mayor has not been invited to the state banquet,” Khan’s spokesperson told media.

Invitations were, instead, sent to Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, both of whom declined to attend the banquet. Cable told media that his RSVP should be considered a “boycott.”

“We should not be beguiled by pomp and circumstance into hobnobbing with a man who is on record as a misogynist and a racist,” Cable said.

There is no love lost between Khan and Trump; the pair have been at odds before Trump was even elected in 2016. Khan has repeated criticized Trump over his treatment of women and minorities, and lashed out at Trump over his domestic policies, particularly Trump’s attitude toward Islam. Khan is Muslim and is the first Muslim mayor of London.

Trump has, in turn, critiqued Khan over his “knife control” policies, meant to keep stabbings and random knifings down in London’s city center, and was especially perturbed last year when Khan approved a ridiculous “Baby Trump” balloon to fly over downtown London during the President’s last visit.

It is not known whether “Baby Trump,” which has been on something of a “tour” of protests in the United States, will reappear as part of the protests expected to mark the President’s second trip to the UK and his first official state visit, but at least Khan won’t get the opportunity to sneak Baby Trump into dinner in his suit pocket.

President Trump is due to arrive in the United Kingdom on June 4th or 5th, and he will attend not just a state banquet hosted by the Queen and other members of the British royal family at Buckingham Palace, but a host of other meetings with leaders of the UK’s conservative party. He will also participate in several events in the UK commemorating the role the British military played in hosting, training, and partnering with the American military ahead of the D-Day landings, June 6, 1944.

The President will then travel to France to participate in the official D-Day 75 celebration on Omaha Beach in Normandy.

      I’d like to hear just what treatment of “women and minorities” this idiot is talking about. He has many women in high positions in his corporation and many in office in his administration. He has done more for African Americans, Asians, Hispanics, AND Women in creating jobs and opportunities than any other president EVER! But let’s not fool ourselves, the women running for the presidency in debates and treatment will get the SAME treatment as Male opponents, so the ladies should not run expecting to use the Gender Card. And BTW, can any Dem candidate so far other than “elderly, outdated” Joe Biden, even CONSIDER handling the foreign policies for Iran, Russia, China, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, and the one to come – Africa, with any knowledge or experience? No! Trump has debated these issues and viewpoints on how to handle them for 30 years and his instincts are usually right.

    1 – Why in the blue hell is a CITY MAYOR even qualified to speak to why a NATIONAL LEADER is invited by the Queen? He’s a fraud and an idiot.

    2 – Cable’s “protest” is just a stunt, he’ll soon say “he wasn’t really invited, but the Queen had to make the gesture” or some other BS when his stunt doesn’t land him on TV daily.

    3 – The “knife control” jabs are definitely warranted, as many people, seeing knives used more and more due to the massive difficulties finding other weapons, want GPS trackers in all blades.

    4 – Obama is a racist as much as Trump, as any person. Khan is far more racist, as he’s on record telling Brits that TERRORISM is “part and parcel” of living in a major city. Trump is just a New Yorker and very bluntly spoken. As for the mysogony, well, when you illegally record someone without their knowledge, and goad them into saying things you can later twist, you tend to get the sound bites you want.

    5 – Britain was once THE world power, now they’re a laughing stock.

      Britain is not a “laughing stock:” It has been under invasion for a long time. USA is not far behind, thanks to Obama. There are dozens of Muslims in office in USA; thousands are being trained to go into politics; & schools are switching from brainwashing kids in Communism to indoctrinating into Islam. Search “Islamization of American schools,” Qatar Foundation International, & “cair textbook school.”

      These politicians are showing their ignorance. They should not be in politics nor in public service. They seem to be in service for themselves alone, not for their country and their people. Diplomacy would be a lot better. Then they can learn more and be more knowledgeable in serving their constituents.

        “They don’t want to appear racist so they put the head racist in charge. It is coming back to bite them.”

        That statement describes the USA and Obama in every word.

        The US was becoming pretty much unified between races, until Obama came along saying things to turn the blacks against whites… He set us back decades in racial relations with his hateful innuendo and sophistry… He is one of the biggest mistakes the American people have EVER made; trying to be racially accepting gave us a racial nightmare.

        We also learned that when you vote a minority into a high government position, you can’t complain about anything he/she does, without being labeled a “Racist”… So, other politicians are afraid to oppose him on anything he does or says… Is that happening in London with Khan?

        Or are the Muslims a majority instead of a minority there now?

Country soon won’t be worth spit with the barbaric , sadistic cult ruling them with sharia laws ! & their pompous parliament ignores the invasion & does NOTHING either !

    1951 – Truman while she was still Princess Elizabeth
    1957 – Dwight D Eisenhower
    1961 – JFK ☹
    1969 – Nixon
    1976 – Ford – that’s the spirit!
    1977 – Carter
    1982 – Reagan – giddyap for the Gipper?
    1989 – George H.W. Bush
    1994 – Clinton
    2003 – W
    2011 – BHO

    So she met with all and much more of a statesperson than these clowns in London (and many in US Congress) today and knows how to make a nation take pride.

    We Americans are suppose to be upset because a liberal Muslim doesn’t like our President! When did a mayor in London start having such an important opinion that it would matter to us. I for one couldn’t care less what the Islam mayor thinks of our President. President Trump is doing a great job in spite of the 80 different investigations that are going on about him.

    The last time I made a remark about Mayor Khan I was put in Twitter Jail for a week.
    Personally I think the people of London made a huge mistake putting him in office, a belief that continues to grow with his ignorance concerning President Trump and even the English language. a Misogynist is one who “Hates or mistrusts women” and President Trump has never shown either trait, while Kahn’s people, the Arabs, have exhibited those traits for centuries. As for the ‘racist’ business, one of the Trump employees did something bad years ago, he was fired. It was neither Trump nor his policies that created that incident. As for his distrust of Muslims that can be placed on the Muslim’s own heads for waging war against America, a war that has run since the earliest days of our existence as a country.
    What is even worse is the hypocrisy of Kahn, the member of a Cult (Islam) that is no better than Nazism was, with the same goals and even worse ideals. Islam allows for sex slaves, relegates their women to less than second-class citizens, in dress, mutilation (FGM), even death to those who disgrace the family for things like reporting a rape or just going out with a man who is not a Muslim.
    A man who is a member of Islam has no standing in calling a person either misogynist or racist given their beliefs.
