London Mayor Invites Anti-Trump US Workers to Relocate

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has extended an offer to any “talented” Americans who are looking to leave the country after Donald Trump was elected president.

“I heard one of the most googled things since Wednesday has been, ‘How do you emigrate?'” he said, while speaking alongside Google chief Sundar Pichai on Wednesday, the Evening Standard reports.

Google is adding another 10-story expansion to their London headquarters.

“If talented people based in the U.S. want to come here to London, my message is simple — London is open. And our website’s not going to crash.”

“Coming from the U.S., we’ve obviously been through an important moment and it’s important to remember it’s a democratic process,” Pichai added. “It’s a robust and challenging democratic process. But it’s important that we now have a smooth transition.

“We’ve had a deeply divided election, but we now hopefully can move beyond the rhetoric of the campaign to actually getting things done.”

Khan was elected in May and became the first Muslim mayor of a major Western capital. During that time, he said Trump’s “views of Islam are ignorant,” and hoped the billionaire would not win.

“When he won, I wished him well,” Trump said of Khan on ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” on May 16. “Now I don’t care about him. It doesn’t make any difference to me how he does.”
