Prior to his arrival he tweeted 2 times.
After his arrival he has tweeted 4 times.
1. @SadiqKhan, who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London, has been foolishly “nasty” to the visiting President of the United States…
2. Landing now!
.@SadiqKhan, who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London, has been foolishly “nasty” to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom. He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me……— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2019
….Kahn reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job – only half his height. In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom, and am looking very much forward to my visit. Landing now!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2019
Sadiq Khan, the first Muslim Mayor of London, on Saturday had an op-ed published on The Guardian‘s website, in it, the Mayor explained that it was, “un-British to be rolling out the red carpet this week for a formal state visit for a president whose divisive behaviour flies in the face of the ideals America was founded upon – equality, liberty and religious freedom.”
Khan goes on to say, “Rather than bestowing Trump with a grand platform of acceptability to the world, we should be speaking out and saying that this behaviour is unacceptable – and that it poses a grave threat to the values and principles we have fought hard to defend – often together – for decades.”
Politico reports that as the President arrived in the U.K., he made mention of the feud between he and the London Mayor to Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who was there to greet the President on the tarmac.
Hunt told channel 4 news when asked if the President insulting Khan via tweet, by calling the London Mayor a “stone cold loser, and nasty,” was acceptable, Hunt said, “Jon, it’s not my job to approve the tweets put out by the President of the United States.”
“I’m sure the President was angry – and he says what he thinks”.— Channel 4 News (@Channel4News) June 3, 2019

Mayor and Democrat Presidential hopeful Bill de Blasio weighed in on the feud and the comparison between he and Khan via Twitter.
#ConDon takes another shot at me. But I’m a total @SadiqKhan stan, so consider any comparison a compliment. Plus the Mayor is a much better British doppelgänger than Brexit Bojo…. https://t.co/HkSbR8Hzml— Bill de Blasio (@BilldeBlasio) June 3, 2019

4. but U.S. is taking Billions!
China is subsidizing its product in order that it can continue to be sold in the USA. Many firms are leaving China for other countries, including the United States, in order to avoid paying the Tariffs. No visible increase in costs or inflation, but U.S. is taking Billions!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2019
Tariffs are a tax on the U.S. consumer, that billion the U.S. is taking in are in fact American tax dollars.
As to the “China is subsidizing” the U.S. has been subsidizing products for decades, that includes farmers who the U.S. has bailed out at the cost of $12 billion, with another $16 billion planned since the President has increased the Chinese tariffs last month.
As a reminder.

5. The only problem is that @CNN is the primary source of news available from the U.S. After watching it for a short while, I turned it off.
6. I believe that if people stoped using or subscribing to @ATT, they would be forced to make big changes at @CNN
Just arrived in the United Kingdom. The only problem is that @CNN is the primary source of news available from the U.S. After watching it for a short while, I turned it off. All negative & so much Fake News, very bad for U.S. Big ratings drop. Why doesn’t owner @ATT do something?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2019
I believe that if people stoped using or subscribing to @ATT, they would be forced to make big changes at @CNN, which is dying in the ratings anyway. It is so unfair with such bad, Fake News! Why wouldn’t they act. When the World watches @CNN, it gets a false picture of USA. Sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2019

For What It’s Worth.
Here are screen grabs of the President’s tweets, in which he spelled Stopped wrong and also misspelled Khan’s last name. They might eventually be replaced, maybe…
Authors note: Because the President issued the tweets in a thread, if he deletes one, both will be replaced.
This post will be updated within reason.
