Sadiq Khan criticises 'ill-informed' Donald Trump's response to London attack

Identity Of London Bridge Attackers Revealed 18928491 1469360899795329 1439437859

Trump condemned the last part of that comment, tweeting on Sunday: "At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'". However, YouGov's poll shows that 51 percent of Londoners trust the Khan to keep Britain safe from terrorism, compared to just 30 percent who do not.

Trump said he had spoken with British Prime Minister Theresa May and offered the US' "unwavering support" in investigating the terror attacks at the iconic London Bridge and Borough Market in the heart of the British capital.

London mayor Sadiq Khan has urged the police and security services to respond to questions about why they knew about Khuram Butt but did not act on warnings about his behavior, reported Guardian newspaper.

"I don't think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the United States of America in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for", Khan said during an interview Monday night.

Khan is among those who have asked the government to reconsider the invitation, describing the state visit as "inappropriate" given the president's months-long push for a travel ban for passengers from several Muslim majority nations.

President Trump has hurled more insults at London's mayor, Sadiq Khan.

Lewis Lukens, the acting ambassador at the U.S. Embassy in London, tweeted Sunday: "I commend the strong leadership of the @MayorofLondon as he leads the city forward after this heinous attack".

Trump began by retweeting Drudge Report and eventually sent six total tweets that included a message of support for London and the U.K, a plea for his travel ban and a dig at London mayor Sadiq Khan for advising Londoners to remain calm.

Trump then takes Khan's remark out of context.

He continued: "And all I care about is what's in the best interest of the President because that's what's in the best interest of the country. No reason to be alarmed", Khan said while addressing residents. "It's shameful that we've reinforced a bully personality".

Can't imagine why Khan wouldn't want to hang out with this guy.

Khan tells CNN's Christiane Amanpour that Trump's views of Islam "are ignorant". "So I'm not afraid to say when I think President Trump is getting things wrong".

"At a time when anti-Semitic hate crimes are on the rise - when Americans, Muslims, African-Americans, Latinos are being targeted for racism; when violence motivated by hatred from Portland, Oregon, to College Park, ends the lives of young Americans, this program's vision of spreading tolerance is more urgent than ever", Clinton said. "You can be a Muslim and you can be European". "Frankly, tell him I will remember those statements".
