Donald Trump lands in UK with some punchy tweets
US President Donald Trump arrived in the United Kingdom on Monday for an official three-day state visit.
Doing what he is known for, Trump has already thrown in rhetorical punches on Twitter by blasting a prominent local critic as 'a stone cold loser'.
Speaking to John Maytham, UK correspondent Gavin Grey says there are huge banners outside the US embassy pin protest against Trump.
.@SadiqKhan, who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London, has been foolishly “nasty” to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom. He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2019
....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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2019
