London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan thinks Donald Trump is a racist, a sexist, and a homophobe — and wants his own Labour party to do more to “call him out,” APA reports citing Politico.

Last week Labour — on course for power on current polling — extended what appeared to be an olive branch to the Republican presidential hopeful when foreign affairs chief David Lammy said Trump was “often misunderstood” on policy.

But while Khan accepted he had “more latitude” than some of his colleagues to speak freely, the London mayor told POLITICO Trump was far from “misunderstood.”

“I’m quite clear, I understand on Trump,” said Khan. “He’s a racist. He’s a sexist. He’s a homophobe. And it’s very important, particularly when you’ve got a special relationship, that you treat them as a best mate.

“If my best mate was a racist, or a sexist or a homophobe, I’d call him out and I’d explain to him why those views are wrong.”
