Mayor of Tower Hamlets John Biggs said: “It is hugely disappointing that Theresa May has invited Donald Trump to visit the UK. “Donald Trump seeks to spread division and legitimise the far-right. His words and actions demonise individuals and communities on basis of their race, religion or ethnicity.
“Tolerance and diversity has strengthened Tower Hamlets for centuries and we must not allow Trump’s visit to undermine that. I have written to the Prime Minister twice to make this very clear, and I’ll continue to make that case in the strongest possible terms.”
