Sadiq Khan on Tuesday (May 10) hit out at Donald Trump for signalling that he would exempt him from his proposed temporary ban on Muslims entering the US, saying his "ignorant" comments play "into the hands of extremists".

Trump's ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe - it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of the extremists," added Khan.

Trump called for a "total and complete shutdown" of the country's borders to Muslims in the wake of the San Bernardino terrorist attack in December 2015.
