Trump supporters demand arrest of London Mayor Sadiq Khan

Pro-Trump protesters attempted to interrupt a speech by London Mayor Sadiq Khan and have called for his arrest, Sky News reported Saturday.

When Khan, a former chair of the Fabian Society, resumed his speech he quipped: "On the plus side, I wasn't served with a P45" - a reference to Theresa May's Tory conference speech that was interrupted by a prankster.

Shortly after Khan began speaking at the society's new year conference, one man told the audience: "Ladies and gentlemen, we're here today to make a non-violent, peaceful citizen's arrest". That didn't pan out.

Khan had commented at the time saying he was "not welcome" to visit the United Kingdom saying "President Trump ... used Twitter to promote a vile, extremist group that exists exclusively to sow division and hatred in our country".

Dismissing the President's excuse that he didn't want to visit London because the new USA embassy had been a bad financial deal, Kassam - - laid the blame squarely on the shoulders of leading Labour party figures including the leader of the opposition Jeremy Corbyn, and London mayor Sadiq Khan - both of whom have done all but promise massive street actions against the President should he visit the city.

As they were being escorted out, they were heard saying: 'We stand under Common Law jurisdiction.

Security forces tried to eject the disrupters however they refused and said, "if you touch us, you'll be done for common assault. We're not leaving, we've paid for a ticket", reported the Evening Standard newspaper.

The demonstrator also accused the Fabian Society of "subverting" the constitution.

Mr Khan has called Donald Trump's policies "divisive", describing them as the "polar opposite" of London's values of "inclusion, diversity and tolerance".

Trump called himself "a very stable genius" last week after accusations he was "intellectually incapable" of holding office.
