NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Presumptive U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said he was offended by London's new mayor who had called his view of Islam ignorant. London's first Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan wrote on Twitter last week: "Trump's ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe." In an interview clip aired by broadcaster ITV on Sunday, Trump said: "When he won, I wished him well. Now I don't care about him. I mean, it doesn't make any difference to me about him. Let's see how he does." When asked if he was offended by Khan, Trump replied: "Yeah, I am because he doesn't know me, never met me, doesn't know what I am all about." Trump said Khan's comments were rude and nasty. Trump vowed last December to ban all Muslims from entering the United States if he succeeded in his bid to become the next U.S. president.
