He took issue with Trump's ban on travelers from several Muslim-majority countries as well as his decisions to withdraw the US from the Paris climate accord, move the USA embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, enforce the "imprisonment of children at borders", and defend "the violence and actions of White Supremacists".
With nationwide protests in the United Kingdom already planned in anticipation of a visit by U.S. President Donald Trump later this summer, the mayor of the country's fourth largest city on Wednesday announced a council meeting that Trump-being the "wasteman" that he is-would not be welcome in Sheffield.
Magid Magid, 28, made the announcement during a Sheffield City Council meeting while wearing a sombrero.
The mayor of Britain's fourth biggest city used his chair at the helm of a Sheffield City Council meeting this week to troll President Donald Trump, declaring him "banned" from the city and declaring July 13, the day of the USA leader's looming visit to England, "Mexico Solidarity Day".
One thing about the visit is certain - Donald won't be welcome in the Steel City as long as Magid has any say over the matter.
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.
Magid was born in an Ethiopian refugee camp and immigrated to Sheffield when he was 5 years old, BBC reported.

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.
