Over the weekend, Donald Trump singlehandedly destroyed his relationship with the UK in a series of tweets attacking London Mayor Sadiq Khan during a time of crisis.
At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!"

Then he doubled down:
Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!

Donald Trump is scheduled to visit Britain, but that could easily change. Obviously, the British are appalled by Trump and won’t be welcoming him into their country after his deplorable remarks over the weekend.
Khan requested that the British government cancel Trump’s scheduled visit. Khan said in a statement:
“I don’t think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the USA in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for.”
“When you have a special relationship it is no different from when you have got a close mate. You stand with them in times of adversity but you call them out when they are wrong. There are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong.”
It’s revolting the way Donald Trump chose to insult a leader of one of America’s greatest allies during a terrorist attack. Trump is successfully alienating himself from all of America’s European allies. He already lost the faith of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. World leaders also saw his decision to withdraw from the Paris Accord as a slap in the face.
Do you think Trump should be banned?
