Donald Trump has told Theresa May in a phone call he does not want to go ahead with a state visit to Britain until the British public supports him coming. Trump criticized London mayor Khan for his response to the London attack, misquoting the mayor’s message to Londoners not to be alarmed by the increased presence of armed police.
