This week the President of the United States is in Great Britain on his first official visit to the country. It is no secret that many within the nation do not like the American President.
Trump has sparked a national controversy with some comments that he has made to some leaders of Great Britain.
Before the President was set to land he made mention that Boris Johnson would be a good choice for the nations next Prime Minister. It was also said that he does not really care for Meghan Markle and what she represents.
One person that the President has had issues within the recent past is the current Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.
President Trump has written about the Mayor that he has, “done a terrible job … has been foolishly ‘nasty’ to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom.”
He also said that the Mayor is a “stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London.” The President also stated that he was like the, “very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio.”
The President has also stated that he is looking forward to his visit and that he considers and enjoys himself of being a good friend to the British people and country.
The Mayor of London may have been the one that started the firestorm of opinions and remarks from the President.
Khan was noted as saying that “It’s un-British to roll out the red carpet for Donald Trump.” He really has not had anything nice to say to the President and has made it known that he does not like him.
Khan has a bad opinion of several key leaders around the world and sees what they represent as fascist and a danger to the world. The President is seen by Kahn as one of these people. He has noted that the ideals of the President are not very American and really do not represent what the United States stands for.
The President was the recipient of a royal salute as he headed to Buckingham Palace. It was there that he met up with the Queen and other members of the Royal Family.
One family member that was not in attendance was Meghan Markle. The President is scheduled to have lunch with many of the Royal Family and to privately meet with Prince Charles while he is visiting the country.
Many protesters are already set to take to the streets in protest of his visit. This happened a year back when the President visited the country and protesters took to the streets in disapproval of Trump’s arrival.
It can only stand to reason that the protesters do not like Trump because of the ideals that he stands for. His campaign promise was to make the nation of America great again and that has not been popular with the rest of the world.
It is time for the nation to focus on itself in order to stay strong and a good ally to those that rely on America for aid and help.
Mayor Khan and others have a message for Trump that reads, “Tomorrow’s protest against Donald Trump’s state visit is an opportunity to stand in solidarity with those he’s attacked in America, around the world and in our own country – just this morning, @SadiqKhan.”
Much of the protests will center around the disagreement of values that each person has against Trump and the White House. Kahn is a big supporter of many of the liberal freedoms that people seem to think to exist because they want them to exist.
He maintains that people should be able to live as they please and do what they want and when they want to do them. The problem with such a view is what happens when those ideals trample people and destroy them in the process.
The visit of the President to the British nation is highly debated. As he meets with each member of leadership one can only hope that something good comes out of each visit.
The President not only cares for the citizens of America, but he also cares from those living in Great Britain.
