Trump 'got the message' over UK visit: London Mayor

London's Mayor sat down and flicked through a paper when his speech was disrupted

Video shared on social media showed the moment the activists interrupted Mr Khan's speech, just after the mayor was introduced to the stage.

And in a dig at the United States president's recent Twitter meltdown, he said: 'It is a pleasure to be here even though we were distracted by the actions of what some would call very stable geniuses'.

The protest comes just one day after Khan - who has been an outspoken critic of the American president - issued a statement about Trump canceling his London visit over an inaccurate claim of President Obama selling the former USA embassy "for peanuts". Please stand back, do not touch us.

One said: "Millions of British people support Donald Trump".

The mayor sat as the moderator stood and tried negotiate with them to stop.

"Arrest him!" the protesters said, according to the Guardian.

The group told ITV News' Paul Brand that they were called "White Pendragon" and thought the Fabians were "subverting society".

In a press conference outside, the group struggled to clarify their issue with the Fabians.

Khan resumed his speech on equality about 20 minutes after the disruption started.

Khan added: "The US has got a special relationship [with Britain]".

A demonstrator holds a pro-Brexit sign and a U.S flag, at the speech by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.

Trump tweeted that he would not visit to open the embassy, saying the decision was because Barack Obama had sold the previous building in Grosvenor Square "for peanuts" and built an expensive replacement in a poor location in south London. Khan said: "As a south Londoner, I take his comments about Nine Elms very personally".

Johnson attacked Khan over Trump's cancelled visit, saying he was a "puffed up pompous popinjay".

In a move that reinforces Theresa May's determination to remain publicly close to Trump, despite accusations of racism and his liaisons with the far right, Downing Street backed an accusation from the foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, that Labour was risking transatlantic ties.
