Sadiq Khan today stoked his feud with Donald Trump by saying he hopes the US president loses the election this year.
The London mayor swiped that potential rival Mike Bloomberg ‘gets under the skin’ of Mr Trump because he was wealthier and more successful.
The latest installment in the bitter Transatlantic slanging match comes as the Democrats choose their candidate to take on the White House incumbent.
Asked whether he was hoping Mr Trump will lose the election in November, Mr Kahn told Politico: ‘Of course I am. I like good guys and good women to win, rather than bad guys.

‘The key thing for the Democrats is to choose somebody who can beat Trump.’
Mr Khan made a less than flattering comparison between Mr Trump and Mr Bloomberg, who founded the respected global new service that bears his name.
‘I think Mike Bloomberg is interesting, He clearly gets under Trump’s skin. If it’s Bloomberg vs Trump it will be a really interesting campaign,’ Mr Khan said.
