London Mayor Sadiq Khan said Britain should not roll out the red carpet for Presdient Donald Trump's state visit in the United Kingdom, calling him a “global threat” of the rising “far right."

Anti-Trump Khan also accused Brexit party leader Nigel Farage and national populist leaders like Hungary’s Viktor Orbán and Italy’s Matteo Salvini of imitating “20th-century fascists”.

Khan accused Trump of using “xenophobia, racism and ‘otherness’ as an electoral tactic."

He then compared the president's actions to “the actions of European dictators of the 1930s and 40s… the military juntas of the 1970s and 80s… Vladimir Putin or Kim Jong-un," in his article in the Observer.

“Donald Trump is just one of the most egregious examples of a growing global threat,” Khan wrote.

“The far right is on the rise around the world… Viktor Orbán in Hungary, Matteo Salvini in Italy, Marine Le Pen in France and Nigel Farage here in the UK are using the same divisive tropes of the fascists of the 20th century to garner support," he added.

"Trump is seen as a figurehead of this global far-right movement. Through his words and actions, he has given comfort to far-right political leaders, and it’s no coincidence that his former campaign manager, Steve Bannon, has been touring the world, spreading hateful views and bolstering the far right wherever he goes," Khan concluded.

Last month, we reported Khan had not been invited to the state banquet held in Donald Trump's honor during his official visit to the UK.

The anti-Brexit Mayor said Trump was "not in the same class" as Barack Obama.

Khan, who announced plans to slash the number of police in the UK capital last year, said in March he had 'done all I can' as he was grilled over his complete failure of tackling London's violent knife.

The London Mayor claimed he had done 'as much as I am allowed to do under the law' by raising taxes and using business rates funds to invest in policing.
