London Mayor Sadiq Khan Compares Boris Johnson and Donald Trump to Nazis on 80th Anniversary of Start of World War II
Sunday was the 80th anniversary of the Nazi invasion of Poland that officially started World War II.
On this anniversary weekend Sadiq Khan compared UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and US President Donald Trump to the Nazis.
What a clown.
He must still be smarting from when Trump made fun of his height.
….Kahn reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job – only half his height. In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom, and am looking very much forward to my visit. Landing now!

The Daily Mail reported:
London mayor Sadiq Khan has slammed Boris Johnson and Donald Trump as ‘extreme right wing leaders’ and claimed that the lessons of the Second World War are in ‘danger of being forgotten’ because of their rise in popularity.
Khan labelled the US president ‘the global poster-boy for white nationalism’ and said that he inspired right wing leaders around the world, including the Prime Minister and Nigel Farage.
The London mayor added that support for democracy in the western world is at a ‘record low’.
He also believes that Brexit Party leader Farage has pushed Johnson and his Conservative party to become ‘ever more right wing, illiberal and intolerant’.
The mayor wrote in the Observer, : ‘For the first time in more than 70 years, it seems the lessons of the second world war are genuinely at risk of being forgotten or, worse still, being rewritten.
‘The EU and NATO, so instrumental in preventing another bloody world war, are facing unprecedented attacks – often from leaders of the very nations that helped create them.
‘Support for democracy is at a record low across the western world, and the values that define liberal democracies are under siege – from the rule of law and the independence of the judiciary, to a free press and a vibrant civil society.’
