Trump sons defend his criticism of London mayor

Conservative Parliament member Penny Mordaunt tweeted a transcript of Khan's statements in an effort to defend him.

Trump criticized Khan for his comments following the weekend terror attack in London that killed at least seven people and wounded dozens more. "There's no reason to be alarmed", he had said.

Khan offered no response to Trump's Twitter attack.

This is by no means the first time Trump Jnr, who claimed his father's comments about "grabbing" women by the "pussy" are typical among some men and are "a fact of life" previous year, has launched an attack on Mr Khan.

Trump's extraordinary attacks on the popular mayor of a grieving city have disgusted many Londoners, reigniting opposition to a state visit by the American president to the United Kingdom planned for later this year.

When corrected and informed that Sadiq Khan was referring to extra police presence on streets, Trump proceeded to say: "Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement".

Well, Khan didn't voluntarily take the time to respond to Trump's beyond-weird tactics, but ITV Channel 4 asked him what he thought of Trump's criticism in light of a future state visit to England. And I think that's what he's trying to say, because he's been proven right about it every time.

On Saturday, three attackers careened a white van into pedestrians on London Bridge. "There will always be exceptions" to the ban, Trump says.

"I don't wish to enter into a row between those two individuals who I think are perfectly able to stick up for themselves". You will not win. "I don't know how you do your job under those circumstances". "Your perverse ideology has nothing to do with the true values of Islam and you will never succeed is dividing our city".

And the US acting ambassador to the U.K., Lewis Lukens, also defended Khan.

Vote in our informal, unscientific poll above and tell us how you voted in the comments. Our city is filled with great sorrow and anger tonight but also great resolve and determination. "Some people thrive on feud and division".

In an interview with ABC's Tom Llamas to promote the Trump Organization's upcoming Americana-themed hotel chain - "it has nothing to do with politics", Trump said, even though "more companies could probably do better by being a little bit more patriotic" - the topic turned to the London attack.

He also told Sky News: "I just haven't got time to respond to tweets from Donald Trump".

"In the circumstances where Donald Trump as president had a Muslim ban, had changed the policies of the U.S., the longstanding policies around refugees, in the circumstances where many British people disagree with many of Donald Trump's policies, we shouldn't be having a state visit", he said.

Khan received support from many, including Prime Minister Theresa May.
