Donald Trump is about to land in London having weighed in on Brexit, Huawei, Meghan Markle and mocking Sadiq Khan’s height all as he took off for Britain.
The US President is in the UK for three days where the Queen will throw a state banquet at Buckingham Palace in his honour tonight after he meets Prince Charles for tea.
The president departed from Joint Base Andrews near Washington DC aboard Air Force One last night and will land at Stansted at 9am.
The Trumps will head to Buckingham Palace for a reception with the Queen, Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.
The Duke of Sussex will also attend a private lunch at the palace – although his wife, who is on maternity leave, will be at home with their four-week-old son, Archie.
Mr Trump has already denied calling the Duchess of Sussex ‘nasty’ when he was recently confronted with comments she made before the 2016 US elections saying she would leave the country if he won.
As he took off he mocked the height of Sadiq Khan as he took off for London from Washington last night after the city’s mayor called him ‘a 20th century fascist’.
‘I don’t think much of him. He’s the twin of de Blasio except shorter,’ he told DailyMail.com on the South Lawn of the White House, in response to a question about whether he would be willing to meet with Khan during his UK State Visit.
Like Khan, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has a hate-hate relationship with the president. De Blasio, a towering hulk of a newly minted presidential candidate, stands at 6’5′. Khan is reportedly 5’6′ tall.
Trump strode to Marine One for his departure Sunday night, ignoring a follow-up question about whether he would be willing to meet with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
