Donald Trump said on Monday that London’s new Muslim mayor made “very rude statements” about him and he’s going to remember those comments.
In an interview with ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” host Piers Morgan, Trump was asked to respond to criticisms made by British politicians about him. He responded by attacking London mayor and David Cameron.
Sadiq Khan, who became the first Muslim to hold the office of mayor of London, has criticized Trump’s views of Islam as ignorant – remarks that Trump called very rude statements that he will remember.
Cameron has also criticized Trump by labeling his suggestion of a ban on Muslims travelling to the U.S. as “divisive, stupid and wrong.”
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee warned he won’t have a good relationship with British Prime Minister David Cameron if he’s elected.
"It looks like we're not going to have a very good relationship. Who knows, I hope to have a good relationship with him but it sounds like he's not willing to address the problem either," Trump said.
"Number one, I'm not stupid, okay? I can tell you that right now. Just the opposite. Number two, in terms of divisive, I don't think I'm a divisive person, I'm a unifier, unlike our president now, I'm a unifier," he added.
Trump’s statements on Islam and Muslims have provoked controversy in the UK. A petition to ban him from the country for hate speech attracted over 500,000 signatures and motivated the members of parliament to debate the proposal.
