Trump sons defend his criticism of London mayor

Adjust Comment Print

Khan on Monday called on the British government to cancel a state visit from Trump.

London's mayor Sadiq Khan warned extremists they will never win as mourners gathered at a tribute to the victims of the London Bridge terror attack.

Khan had told Londoners there was "no reason to be alarmed" about an increased police presence in the coming days following the attack, a remark Trump mischaracterized in a Sunday tweet, suggesting the mayor had said there was "no reason to be alarmed" about the attack itself. And it's not right.

Picking fights with Trump has been good business for all sorts of American left-wing personalities, beginning with the media.

Trump launched an attack on the London Mayor, while apparently misconstruing a statement made by him post the incident. Maybe he's hoping to follow his predecessor as mayor, Boris Johnson, into the cabinet in a future administration and figures being loudly anti-Trump is the way to go. After his election previous year, Khan tweeted criticism of then-candidate Trump's rhetoric, saying that his "ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe".

On Monday, Clinton called for strengthened ties with global allies - a clear contrast with Trump, who has in recent days alarmed North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and withdrawn the United States from a Paris climate accord.

Trump is expected to visit the United Kingdom later this year.

This was in reference to Khan's statement that there was no cause for alarm.

"I don't think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the United States of America in circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for", Khan told Britain's Channel 4 News. You stand with them in times of adversity, but you call them out when they are wrong.

"I don't know how to tell you this, but I really don't care", Khan told the Associated Press when asked questions regarding Trump's tweets, noting he "really couldn't be bothered about what Donald TrumpDonald TrumpLondon mayor on Trump tweets: "I really don't care" Trump decides against Russian Federation investigation "war room": report Linda McMahon: "We're not even staffed up to where we need to be" MORE tweets". But after starting a Twitter feud with London mayor Sadiq Khan, Khan is calling for the trip's cancellation.

Trump on Sunday addressed Khan's comments and wrote via Twitter and said, "At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'"

"What have you got against them?" "There are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong".

"Thank you, Mayor Khan, for your leadership during this crisis".
