    Magid Magid, 28, has attracted some media attention with his clown antics as the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, a city in South Yorkshire. Magid was born in Somalia and moved to Britain at the age of five. He speaks on behalf of Sheffield’s predominantly white population.

    Magid is the youngest, first mayor to come from the Green Party, and the first Somali to hold the position.

    He moved from Somalia to Yorkshire in 1994 after the Somali Civil War broke out. As a migrant, Magid has delivered sharp criticism of Trump and his views on immigration, the BBC reported.

    Magid has denounced the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance policy” towards illegal immigrants – many who come from Mexico. The Somalian says he wants to show solidarity with the Mexican community in his city instead.

    He has now tweeted that Trump was banned from coming to Sheffield during his visit to the UK scheduled for next week. Magid called Trump a “wasteman” who was “henceforth banned from the great city of Sheffield”. A “wasteman” is slang for a person of little merit. It is however unlikely that Trump would visit Sheffield during this stay.

    The Muslim mayor also chaired the Sheffield City Council meeting wearing a sombrero “in solidarity” with Mexico. “I further declare July 13th to be Mexico Solidarity Day!”

    He ripped “[Trump’s] ridiculous Muslim ban, withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement, moving a US Embassy to Jerusalem, enforcing the imprisonment of children at borders and defending white supremacists”.

    In his mayoral inaugural speech Magid said: “I hope by the fact I am a black, Muslim immigrant – everything the Daily Mail probably hates – people will look and say, ‘In Sheffield we’re proud of doing things differently and celebrating our differences’.”

    The Republican president will land at Stansted airport on Thursday July 12 for a three-day visit to the UK, where he will meet Prime Minister Theresa May and the Queen.

    Nigel Farage has meanwhile responded to reports that Downing Street has banned him from meeting the US President by confirming that the reports were “undoubtedly true” as the government “hates me”.

    An unnamed source close to the former United Kingdom Independence Party leader (UKIP) told the Telegraph on Tuesday that the ban against Farage was a “red line [issue] for 10 Downing Street” in the planning of Trump’s visit.
