Trump criticizes London's mayor, again

Trump criticizes London's mayor, again

In a follow-up tweet, he added: "We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people. That was the point he was trying to make".

"At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'"

"You have to be kidding me?!: Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan", he tweeted.

Trump had gone after Khan a day earlier for telling Londoners not to be alarmed, but faced criticism for taking the mayor's remarks out of context.

Khan had warned Londoners that an increased police presence in the wake of the attacks was nothing to worry about. "No reason to be alarmed", was the full statement.

Mrs May has said the President was "wrong" to criticise Mr Khan. Khan poses a particular challenge to Trump's panic-fueled approach on two levels.

Trump was not done, however, inanely tweeting, "Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? It's social media", Gorka told CNN.

In a statement, the US Conference of Mayors, whose membership includes the more that 1,400 US cities with populations of 30,000 or more, said it "stands united" with Mr Khan.

"I commend the strong leadership of the @MayorofLondon as he leads the city forward after this heinous attack".




Dick and Mayor Sadiq Khan visited London Bridge on Monday as commuters returned to the scene of the attacks after some security cordons were removed.

Shortly after becoming mayor, Khan criticized Trump's proposed Muslim ban, saying Trump's "ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe - it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays in to the hands of the extremists".

Trump also found himself in hot water over his tough-talking tweets defending his ban on travelers from several Muslim countries, which is now stalled in the federal courts. In January 2017, Khan, London's first Muslim mayor, stated that Trump's visit to England should be cancelled when he tried to implement a travel ban on Muslim nations.

Trump's tweets this morning are an attack on his Justice Department and that executive order, which he signed.

Seven people died on Saturday and dozens were injured, 21 of them critically, in the attack.

"There's been calls made by a lot of very responsible people on this who are very anxious that she was at the Home Office for all this time, presided over these cuts in police numbers and is now saying that we have a problem - yes, we do have a problem: we should never have cut the police numbers", he said. "The courts are slow and political!" he said, attacking the judiciary in a way that is rare in American politics.

"Trump is an embarrassment to America", Farron said.

"There's nothing better to do than come here and pay respect to such an very bad situation, you know, just to come out and be with everybody in a time where everybody needs to be together", said Matthew Chamberlain, 21, from south London.

"I think that to suggest something like that is utterly ridiculous", deputy White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters.
