Pro-Trump supporters disrupt speech and attempt to arrest London mayor Khan
According to Sky News, supporters of President Donald Trump disrupted a speech being made by London Mayor Sadiq Khan and attempted to arrest him.
The group, described as far-right protesters, held up American flags at the event where Khan was expected to speak on gender equality .
According to the report, the event was delayed by several minutes as police ushered the demonstrators, identified as members of the White Pendragons group, out of the building,
During the nonviolent protest, one member announced, “Ladies and gentlemen, we’re here today to make a non-violent, peaceful citizen’s arrest.”
The arrest attempt comes after Khan shot back at Trump’s decision to not visit the country, with Khan tweeting the American president “got the message” that he was “not welcome” in London after the President cancelled his trip.
Following the removal of the protesters, Khan took a jab at Trump, telling his audience: “It is a pleasure to be here even though we were distracted by the actions of what some would call very stable geniuses.”
