Sheffield’s Lord Mayor Magid Magid put on a sombrero while making the announcement at a city council meeting, the BBC reported Wednesday.

The Green Party councillor on Twitter called Trump a “wasteman” – a British slang word for someone with no merit.

Magid even wore a matching T-shirt with the phrase.

I Magid Magid, Lord Mayor & first citizen of this city hereby declare that not only is Donald J Trump (@realDonaldTrump) a WASTEMAN, but he is also henceforth banned from the great city of Sheffield!

I further declare July 13th to be Mexico Solidarity Day!

He also declared July 13 to be “Mexico Solidarity Day,” the same day when Trump is scheduled to arrive in the United Kingdom for his working visit with Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II.

The BBC noted that Magid does not actually have the power to ban anyone from the city without approval from the council.

Magid listed five reasons why Trump is a “wasteman,” including pulling the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement, his travel ban targeting majority-Muslim countries and his defense of white supremacists who marched in Charlottesville, Va., last year.

Magid was born in an Ethiopian refugee camp and immigrated to Sheffield when he was 5 years old, the BBC reported. At 28 years old, Magid is the youngest mayor to be elected in the city.

The mayor also criticized Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy that has caused the “imprisonment of children at borders.”

He also called on his supporters to stage protests against Trump and to donate to organizations combating his policies.
