Sheffield Mayor Bans Trump from Entering City During Upcoming UK Visit

Sheffield Lord Mayor ‘bans’ Donald Trump from city ahead of UK visit

The tweet by Takei, who has previously called president Trump a "liar", was liked by fellow Sci-Fi actor Mark Hamill, who is best known for his portrayal of Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars film series.

The Green Party councillor tweeted Mr Trump was a "wasteman" and "henceforth banned from the great city of Sheffield".

Now, Magid Magid is continuing his swaggy moves, and this time, he's dropping a "what's good?" to President Donald Trump.

Other reasons include U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, separating migrant children from families at the U.S-Mexico border and "defending the violence and actions of White Supremacists".

Instead, the day of Trump's arrival on July 13 should be celebrated as Mexico Solidarity Day, Mr Magid said, as he wore a "Trump is a Wasteman" t-shirt, teamed with green Doctor Martin boots. At 28, Magid is the youngest person to ever hold the post.

He may be unconventional, with his inauguration images being of him squatting on a stair column, looking more cool than council, but he is certainly popular.

Mark Zuckerberg tops Warren Buffett to become the world’s 3rd richest person
The "Oracle of Omaha" has donated about 290 million Class B shares, which are now worth more than $50 billion, Bloomberg noted. Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, have pledged to give away 99 percent of their Facebook stock over their lifetimes.

Magid came to the Brexit-backing northern city with his mum and five siblings in 1994 when he was just five, having fled war-torn Somalia and spent six months in an Ethiopian refugee camp.

After university he ran a digital marketing business, then returned to Sheffield to see off the rise of Ukip.

Magid is the first Lord Mayor to have a degree in marine biology and was once a contestant on Channel 4's reality show The Hunted.

The decision does not really outlaw Trump's visit because Magid does not have the power to ban anyone from Sheffield, which is one of the country's largest cities with a population of around 570,000.

He also encouraged people to join demonstrations against Trump (tens of thousands of people are reportedly planning to protest the president's visit) and urged Britons to lobby their local representatives "to take a vocal stand" against him.

The gesture is utterly symbolic - there's no indication that Trump plans to visit Sheffield, and mayors can not unilaterally prevent anyone from visiting their city.
