Mo Farah responds to Donald Trump’s immigration ban

Mo Farah has responded to Donald Trump’s immigration ban that could leave him separated from his wife and four children.

He said that it is ‘deeply troubling’ that he will have to have a conversation with his children saying he may not be able to come home to them.

In a statement issued in response to Donald Trump’s travel ban, Sir Mo Farah said: ‘On 1st January this year, Her Majesty The Queen made me a Knight of the Realm. On 27th January, President Donald Trump seems to have made me an alien.

‘I am a British citizen who has lived in America for the past six years – working hard, contributing to society, paying my taxes and bringing up our four children in the place they now call home. ‘Now, me and many others like me are being told that we may not be welcome.

‘It’s deeply troubling that I will have to tell my children that Daddy might not be able to come home – to explain why the President has introduced a policy that comes from a place of ignorance and prejudice.

I was welcomed into Britain from Somalia at eight years old and given the chance to succeed and realise my dreams.
