President Trump on Tuesday kept up his war of insults with London Mayor Sadiq Khan on the second day of his three-day state visit to the United Kingdom, although he refrained from repeating his description of him as a “loser” and making fun of his height.

In an editorial published ahead of Trump’s arrival, Khan said it is “un-British to be rolling out the red carpet” for him. Khan also compared Trump to murderous dictators and part of a growing global threat of far-right politics. 
“I don’t think he should be criticizing a representative of the United States that can do so much good for the United Kingdom,” Trump told reporters at a press conference with outgoing U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May. “He should be positive, not negative. He’s a negative force, not a positive force. And if you look at what he said, he hurts the people of this great country.“I think he should actually focus on his job,” Trump added. “It’d be a lot better if he did that.”

Trump’s comments came a day after he called Khan a “stone cold loser” in a tweet shortly before landing in London.

Khan “reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job — only half his height,” Trump continued. “In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom, and am looking very much forward to my visit. Landing now!”

"It's the sort of behavior I'd expect from an 11-year-old," Khan told CNN. "It's not for me to respond in a like manner." (Khan has said he is 5 feet 6, although he is sometimes described as one inch shorter than that. De Blasio is 6 feet 5.)

On Monday, the president and first lady Melania Trump were welcomed to Buckingham Palace by Queen Elizabeth II, who hosted a lunch and dinner with the Trumps, their adult children and other guests as thousands of demonstrators gathered in Central London to protest Trump’s U.K. visit.

At Tuesday’s press conference, Trump downplayed the size of the protests and suggested demonstrators were “put in for political reasons.”

“It was a very, very small group of people,” he said.

With Mr. Trumps countenance and whatever that thing on the top of his noggin is, I would not be quite so hasty as to make fun of others, shall we say short comings.

Where is the criticism of the mayor, who started this?

'Where is the criticism of the mayor, who started this?'

What nonsense.

It was the 'president' 'who started this' just before AF1 landed there.

Uh, noooo. Read your own seed:

Follow the link. That editorial was published on June 1 - three days ago. Trump's tweet went out yesterday in response.

Yeah I know they've been at each other in the past and I also know that either one could just tap out and stop taking part at any time. It's just kind of amazing to me that no matter how many people get into a slap fight with Trump, he is always the bad guy and you never hear one word of criticism about the other person's role in the fight.

Because he is always the bad guy.  Rump could keep his mouth shut instead of being rumplethinskin

I think it's a role he relishes. Gives him fodder for the 'fake news' facade and red meat for his base, a tactic he uses to his advantage...clever in its' duplicity.

Mayor Khan didn't 'start anything' by telling the truth and by not wanting to welcome the turd with open arms.

Oh yes, I forgot. Insults from the Left are always ok because they come with "a good reason." Insults from the Right are always inappropriate. Isn't that about how it goes?
