Mr Khan's address to a Fabian Society conference in London was interrupted by activists moments after he was introduced to the stage.

The protest comes just one day after Khan - who has been an outspoken critic of the American president - issued a statement about Trump canceling his London visit over an inaccurate claim of President Obama selling the former US embassy "for peanuts".

Khan had just stood to speak when the group stood and heckled him, one holding up a U.S. flag.

Protestors disrupted proceedings with statements backing Donald Trump as well as the UK's decision to leave the European Union.

The mayor sat as the moderator stood and tried negotiate with them to stop.

The protestors shouted they wanted the mayor to be arrested.

The group, believed to be from the White Pendragons, told the audience: "Ladies and gentlemen, we're here today to make a non-violent, peaceful citizen's arrest".

Her actions made Manning a hero to anti-war and anti-secrecy activists but U.S. establishment figures branded her a traitor. President Obama commuted her sentence , and Manning was released from military prison last year after serving seven years.

In a press conference outside, the group struggled to clarify their issue with the Fabians. Many of us love America.

It comes after Sadiq Khan said Donald Trump had realised he is "not welcome" in London after cancelling a planned visit.

The London mayor, who has previously criticised Trump over his comments on terror attacks and immigration policy targeting Muslims, will reiterate his opposition in a speech on Saturday.

He said May and Trump enjoyed a good relationship, adding: "The US is one of our oldest and most valued allies, and our strong and deep partnership will endure". The new building was the most advanced USA embassy in the world and "did not cost the United States taxpayer a cent", he said, being financed by the sale of the old site and other London properties.

After they had been led out, Khan aimed another jab at President Trump.

Downing Street later clarified the foreign secretary was speaking in his capacity as a minister.
