Trump accuses London Mayor Khan of "pathetic excuse" over attack statement

Trump accuses London Mayor Khan of

After the tragedy, the mayor said: "Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days".

President Donald Trump's two adult sons are defending their father's controversial Twitter attack against London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

London mayor Sadiq Khan has called on the Government to cancel the planned state visit by Donald Trump after the U.S. president continued to criticise his response to the London Bridge terror attack.

Mr Khan had said people should not be alarmed by an increased police presence on the streets.

Khan and Trump have clashed in the past, with Khan, a human rights lawyer and practicing Muslim, slamming Trump's call for a travel ban, saying that the president has an "ignorant view of Islam".

His comments caused outrage among British officials.

Even when asked whether she would welcome "a period of silence" from Trump, May said: "I'm very clear that Sadiq Khan is doing a doing job as mayor of London". "And this president is trying to do something to protect the people of this country".

After Mr Trump as a presidential candidate announced his plan, Mr Khan told the BBC he hoped he would "lose badly", adding that he was a "buffoon".

President Trump today tweeted that the mainstream media is abeting London Mayor Sadiq Khan's spin that Trump took his remarks out of context when he derided Khan for telling Londoners not to be alarmed in the aftermath of a terrorist attack.

But now that the official invitation had been offered to the USA leader, the Foreign Secretary said: "I see no reason to rescind it". "One of the things about having close mates and having a special relationship is to not just stand with them in adversity but call them out when they are wrong". Khan's spokesperson initially said that the mayor would not respond, as he has "more important things to do".

The president then appeared to believe that Khan was saying Londoners should not be alarmed by the attack.

"I commend the strong leadership of the @MayorofLondon as he leads the city forward after this heinous attack", the acting ambassador, Lewis Lukens, tweeted on Sunday.

Trump's son, Donald Trump, Jr., resurfaces that September tweet after an attack at Westminster.

Khan, the first Muslim to be elected mayor of a major European city, strongly condemned the attacks.

Meanwhile, one of the men responsible for Saturday's attack is believed to have appeared in Channel 4 documentary The Jihadis Next Door a year ago.

The Prime Minister did, however, decline to comment directly on the attack by Trump, nor did she criticise the President.
