The Mayor who banned Donald Trump from his city has won a seat in the European Parliament.
Magid Magid branded the US President a ‘wasteman’ and barred him Sheffield during his time as Mayor of the city.
The councillor, whose mother fled to Britain from war-torn Somalia when he and his siblings were children, is opposed to Trump’s views on immigration.
Magid, who won a seat for the Green Party in Yorkshire and Humber and is also known as Magic Magid, tweeted: “We did it. Today is about a Green Wave cascading through Europe & landing on the shores of Yorkshire for the first time. We’re just getting started.
