Trump called Sadiq Khan a “stone cold loser,” among other insults, in a tweet shortly before landing in the U.K. for a state visit. The tweet escalated an ongoing war of words between the two leaders ahead of the international trip.

“It’s for him to decide how he behaves,” Khan said. “It’s not for me to respond in a like manner.”
