(BUSINESS INSIDER) – Newly elected Mayor Sadiq Khan of London has stepped up his criticism of Donald Trump, saying Trump's plan to bar non-American Muslims from entering the US is "playing right into the hands of the extremists."
In an interview with Huffington Post UK published early Friday, Khan said he was offering Trump a personal tour of London so the presumptive Republican presidential nominee could meet Muslims who are "comfortable with Western values."
"We showed in London on May the fifth, my election, that actually it's perfectly compatible to be a mainstream Muslim and have Western liberal values," Khan, who is Muslim, told The Huffington Post.

"There are literally hundreds of thousands of Londoners who are Muslim and Western. Meet my family, meet me, meet my friends, meet other Londoners, and hopefully that will reassure that it's possible."
