London Mayor Khan: No Rolling 'Out the Red Carpet' for Trump

London's Mayor Sadiq Khan says he does not think the British capital should "roll out the red carpet" for President Donald Trump for his 2018 visit.

In an interview with CNN, Khan said "state visits are different from a normal visit."

"And at a time when the president of the USA has policies that many in our country disagree with, I am not sure it is appropriate for our government to roll out the red carpet," he said.

The planned visit – announced by U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May at the G-20 summit, CNN reported – was delayed until next year amid concerns it will trigger protests.

Khan, the first Muslim mayor of a western capital city, is not ruling out a meeting with Trump, CNN reported.

"If someone has views that I think can be changed I am ready to play my role," he told CNN. "If you somehow think it is not possible to be a Muslim and a proud westerner, I am happy to disabuse you of that idea, whether you are a reporter for CNN or Donald Trump."
