In Chicago, London mayor says Trump plays to 'extremists'
by Rick Pearson
London Mayor Sadiq Khan contended Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump represented the views of "extremists" by trying to say that mainstream believers in the Muslim religion cannot hold Western values.
Speaking to reporters in Chicago on Thursday night during his first visit to the U.S. since winning his mayoral contest in May, Khan called himself a "big fan" of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and said he hoped she used the time until Nov. 8 "infusing, energizing people to vote" for her.
Khan's comments came after speaking to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, where he did not directly address the GOP presidential candidate by name — except once, rhetorically. His public comments about the U.S. presidential election were stronger during an earlier appearance in Montreal with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
