PRO-DONALD Trump protesters called for Sadiq Khan to be ARRESTED as they interrupted a speech he was giving in London.

Mr Khan’s address to a Fabian Society conference had to be suspended for several minutes as demonstrators from the White Pendragons group called for the mayor to be arrested, making statements in support of President Trump and Brexit.

Video on social media shows a man attempting to make a citizen’s arrest on the Mayor, addressing the audience with: “Ladies and gentlemen, we’re here today to make a non-violent, peaceful citizen’s arrest.”

One protester could be seen waving an American flag and holding a sign saying “No 2 Eu.”

He has a long-running feud with the U.S President, after Trump criticised Mr. Khan’s response to the London Bridge terror attacks on Twitter.

And the London Mayor reignited the feud last November, when he slammed the President for sharing videos from far-right group Britain First.

When Mr Khan resumed his speech, he took a dig at the American president who recently described himself as a “very stable genius”.

Mr Khan told delegates: “It is a pleasure to be here even though we were distracted by the actions of what some would call very stable geniuses.”

He also joked about the unexpected event with a reference to Prime Minister Theresa May’s Tory conference speech, which was interrupted by a prankster, saying: “On the plus side I wasn’t served with a P45.”

When attempts were made to kick out the protesters, one announced that if anyone touched them, they would sue for assault.
