Sadiq Khan mentioned the American President in the massive Trafalgar Square rally. Sadiq Khan was speaking at a screening of The Salesman, the film director is Muslim, so is the Mayor. Mr Farhadi, who won his second Academy Award at this year’s Oscars but refused to receive the award in a sign of protest against Donald Trump’s order to ban the citizens of the Muslim countries from entering the USA. “We stand in solidarity with all those who are discriminated against because of their nationality, their faith or their background. At a time when people are talking about travel bans, I want to welcome people. At a time when people are motivating communities to divide, I want to unite them,” Mayor Khan said. President Trump previously called Mr Khan “ignorant” and “rude” after he spoke out against the then candidate’s plans for office, but the Mayor said that whatever Trump says it won’t make him silent.
