Alt-Right Trump Supporters Attempt to 'Arrest' London Mayor Sadiq Khan

"Making his reflection on the London's mayors increasing concern with matters of state instead of effectively running the city he was elected to lead, Kassam concluded: "...to borrow a phrase from Donald Trump, London is turning into a shithole under Sadiq Khan".

The demonstrators, from a group called the White Pendragons, were escorted from the venue by police.

Mr Khan's address to a Fabian Society conference in London was interrupted by activists moments after he was introduced to the stage.

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".

As security began to appear, those in the audience started to heckle and slow-hand-clap.

However their attempts to eject those responsible for the disruption were initially met with aversion from the protesters, one of whom could be heard saying: "We stand under Common Law jurisdiction".




The protest was seen to be in response to comments made by Khan following Trump's decision to cancel his visit to London next month because he was opposed to the location and price tag of the new U.S. embassy, which he was set to attend the opening of. "We're not leaving, we've paid for a ticket", reported the Evening Standard newspaper.

The London mayor added: "It is a pleasure to be here even though we were distracted by the actions of what some would call very stable geniuses".

The protesters claimed that the Fabian Society was "subverting our English constitution", with one quoting the Magna Carta.

Mr Trump was scheduled to travel to London to open a new embassy, but he cancelled.

Mr Trump recently used the words "stable" and "genius" to describe himself.
