Donald Trump's last statement before leaving Washington for London was a slap at the city's mayor, Sadiq Khan, who called him 'a 20th century fascist' just days ago.

'I don't think much of him. He's the twin of de Blasio except shorter,' he told DailyMail.com on the South Lawn of the White House, in response to a question about whether he would be willing to meet with Khan during his UK State Visit.

Like Khan, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has a hate-hate relationship with the president.

Calls for free folic acid to be given to Irish women as minister considers it ahead of Budget

Calls for free folic acid to be given to Irish women as minister considers it ahead of Budget Taking folic acid every day helps prevent your unborn baby from developing serious and possibly fatal conditions. If you’re of childbearing years – and are capable of getting pregnant – medical experts have said women should be taking 400 micrograms of folic acid daily. A report from the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) a number of years ago found that one in five women don’t consume folic acid at all. Fine Gael TD Kate O’Connell raised the issue with the health minister during an Oireachtas committee meeting this week. “We have the highest rate of neural tube defects.

De Blasio, a towering hulk of a newly minted presidential candidate, stands at 6'5". Khan is reportedly 5'6" tall.

Trump strode to Marine One for his departure Sunday night, ignoring a follow-up question about whether he would be willing to meet with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Khan reacted Saturday in the Observer to Trump's apparent eagerness to weigh in on the future of Brexit and what will soon be a fierce contest to succeed Theresa May as Conservative Party leader and prime minister.

Hundreds of thousands of protesters are expected to descend on central London beginning Monday when the president arrives to meet Prime Minister Theresa May at No. 10 Downing Street.

The man himself may have left… but the Donald Trump baby blimp is finally in Ireland

'The far right is on the rise around the world, threatening our hard-won rights and freedoms and the values that have defined our liberal, democratic societies for more than 70 years.

'This is a man who also tried to exploit Londoners' fears following a horrific terrorist attack on our city, amplified the tweets of a British far-right racist group, denounced as fake news the robust scientific evidence warning of the dangers of climate change;

'And is now trying to interfere shamelessly in the Conservative party leadership race by backing Boris Johnson because he believes it would enable him to gain an ally in Number 10 for his divisive agenda.'

A constant fight between Trump and de Blasio has alternatively simmered and raged for more than a decade, with the New York real estate mogul complaining about the liberal mayor even before he ran the city.

De Blasio was New York's public advocate before winning the top job, and a city councilman before that.

The president mocked him last month when rumors of his entry into a packed Democratic presidential field turned out to be true.

'The Dems are getting another beauty to join their group. Bill de Blasio of NYC, considered the worst mayor in the U.S., will supposedly be making an announcement for president today,' Trump tweeted on May 16.

'He is a JOKE, but if you like high taxes & crime, he’s your man. NYC HATES HIM!'

The feud between Khan and Trump began in 2016 when the president, then a candidate, challenged him to an IQ test after the mayor said his views on Islam were 'ignorant.'

Trump had at the time called for a 'complete and total ban' on Muslims entering the U.S. as a short-term strategy to lower the threat of terrorist attacks.

Speaking to the BBC shortly afterwards, the mayor said: 'Look, it was Donald Trump that began this by saying his blanket ban on Muslims would make an exception for me as Mayor of London.'

'And the point I made with respect to Donald Trump is there's nothing exceptional about me. What about other Londoners who are business people, men and women, who happen to be Muslim and want to do business in America? What about other Londoners who want to go and study in America but happen to be Muslim?'

They clashed again in June 2017 when the US President called Khan's response to the London Bridge terror attack 'pathetic.'

Khan had previously warned Londoners that there would be an increased police presence on the streets and that there was 'no reason to be alarmed.'

Trump made other news as he jetted east, tweeting that Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Kevin Hassett would be leaving the administration.

He praised the 'great job' Kevin Hassett had done and promised a replacement 'as soon as I get back to the U.S.'
