Trump not welcome in Sheffield.

Sheffield’s Lord Mayor has “banned” US President Donald Trump from visiting the city.

Magid Magid made the announcement while chairing a Sheffield City Council meeting and donning a sombrero “in solidarity” with Mexico.

Hmm. I think wearing a sombrero “in solidarity” with Mexico is kind of like a man wearing Manolos “in solidarity” with women. Sombreros are not some kind of Mexican national garment just as stilettos are not required footware for women.

The council said Mr Magid does not have the power to ban anyone from the city, but that full council “may through a collective, democratic debate and process, agree to condemn the views of an individual or organisation”.

The mayor tweeted: “I Magid Magid, Lord Mayor & first citizen of this city hereby declare that not only is Donald J Trump a WASTEMAN, but he is also henceforth banned from the great city of Sheffield!

“I further declare July 13th to be Mexico Solidarity Day!”

Mr Trump is due to come to the UK for his state visit on 13 July but Mr Magid admitted he is unlikely to visit Sheffield.

I suppose Mr Magid didn’t want to tweet “The great city of Sheffield thinks Donald Trump is a big poopyhead!”
