Trump wants UK’s right-wing leader to join him during London visit

The Mail on Sunday said people close to Farage had revealed that Trump was trying to ensure that the leader of the newly-established Brexit Party would be present during a state banquet hosted by British queen when the US president visits London in early June. They said however that the British government could block Trump’s move as Prime Minister Theresa May and her allies in the Tory party have been openly opposed to one such invitation for Farage. “Overtures have been made about Nigel going in with the US contingent. We have been told that his attendance would be a 'red line' for No 10, but it's not clear if they would be able to stop him coming,” said a Farage ally. Notable British politicians, including Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, Parliament Speaker John Bercow and London mayor Sadiq Khan have boycotted the ceremony in protest against Trump’s policies. Both the White House and the Buckingham Palace, which is the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II, refused to comment on the report. The UK government also said that the list of guests for Trump’s visit has yet to be finalized. Farage, a former leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) and a fierce advocate of right-wing politics, has seen his popularity surge since he established Brexit Party in January. The new party is expected to win the European Parliament elections this Thursday. Farage was the first UK politician to visit and congratulate Trump in New York after he was elected in 2016. He has always sought to defend Trump’s controversial policies in the face of increasing criticism in Britain. Trump’s reported efforts to have Farage in London visit comes as the White House has reportedly been irked by British government’s decision to begin a series if crucial debates in the British parliament about UK’S withdrawal from the European Union on June 3, the same day Trump arrives in the UK. “It did strike us as odd and if you want the President to spend his whole trip talking about Brexit, then this was the way to do it,” said a US government source. Right campaigners and political activists have criticized the Buckingham Palace and the UK government for inviting Trump to the UK for a full state-visit. The US president faced huge protests in London and other UK cities when he traveled to the country last year for a working visit.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
