London's Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has openly criticized former U.S. President Donald Trump, labeling him as a racist, sexist, and homophobe

Khan's comments come in the wake of his urging for the Labour Party, of which he is a member, to take a more assertive stance against Trump.

As the November presidential election approaches, the Labour Party seems to be making efforts to solidify its ties with the Republicans, anticipating a potential Trump return to the Oval Office. However, Khan, a vocal critic of Trump, maintains that the party should refrain from "literally rolling out a red carpet for a state visit."

Khan's comments on Trump followed remarks made by David Lammy, the foreign affairs chief, who seemed to extend an olive branch to the former president earlier this month. Lammy suggested that Trump is "often misunderstood" in terms of policy and expressed his desire for Europeans to contribute more towards a better defended Europe.

Khan, however, dismissed Lammy's stance. Speaking to Politico, Khan stated, "I’m quite clear, I understand, on Trump. He’s a racist. He’s a sexist. He’s a homophobe. And it’s very important, particularly when you’ve got a special relationship, that you treat them as a best mate. If my best mate was a racist, or a sexist or a homophobe, I’d call him out, and I’d explain to him why those views are wrong."

Khan, who was recently re-elected for a third term as the mayor of Britain's most populous city, expressed his concerns about a potential Trump presidency. He stated, "You know, I’ve been speaking to governors from America. I’ve been speaking to mayors from America. Of course, we’ll have a relationship, whoever the President is. But we shouldn’t be literally rolling out a red carpet for a state visit."

Khan and Trump have a history of public disagreements, particularly on issues such as immigration. In 2019, ahead of his state visit to London, Trump referred to Khan as a "stone cold loser" and "very dumb." Responding to these comments in his interview with Politico, Khan retorted, "I’ve got more latitude as a mayor to just to say what I feel about Trump, and I make this point. He called me a ‘stone cold loser.' I’ve won three. How many has he won?"

Khan's comments come at a time when the Labour Party is projected to regain power after 14 years in the upcoming U.K. general election.

Lammy, who has previously criticized Trump as a "neo-Nazi-sympathizing sociopath," recently visited Washington, D.C., where he met with several Democrats and Trump allies, including Ohio GOP Sen. JD Vance and South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham.

In his conversation with Politico, Lammy acknowledged the shock value of Trump's words during his presidency but also highlighted the growth in U.S. spending on European defense under Trump's administration. He argued that Trump's pressure on European nations to increase their defense spending had positive effects. Lammy stated, "When he began his campaign, only four countries were spending their 2% of GDP. The number was 10 by the time he left office. And it is 18 today."
