London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who could potentially be banned from entering the United States, has urged Donald Trump to “bring divided communities back together.”
“But he has clearly won the US presidential election. The campaign divided America and the world and emotions are understandably running high. I hope Donald Trump will now do everything in his power to unite people and bring divided communities back together. I wish him well,” he added.
Khan, who was rooting for Hillary Clinton in the US elections 2016, tweeted Tuesday afternoon that “I hope she does [win.]”
Big night ahead for our friends in the US. May the best candidate win.. (and I hope she does!) #ElectionDay

Initially, Khan rejected Trump’s offer to exclude him from the ban on Muslims entering the United States, highlighting that both the UK and the US had seen “huge benefits” from immigration.
Previously Khan warned that Trump’s “ignorant” view of Islam could make both Britain and the US less safe.
Demonstrators took to the streets across the United States for a third night to protest against Donald Trump’s shocking presidential election win, voicing fears that the real estate mogul’s triumph would deal a blow to civil rights.
