Trump lashes out at London's mayor, again

Khan's spokesman said he was too busy to respond to Trump's "ill-informed" tweet.

On June 5, Trump doubled down on his criticism of Khan, accusing the London mayor of spinning his rhetoric.

Trump, in the aftermath of an attack in San Bernardino, California, calls in a statement for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on".

Following the attack, the London mayor released a statement warning his constituents that their city would have an intensified police presence.

Legal challenges to the executive order contend that it amounts to an unconstitutional religious test, something borne from Trump's campaign when he repeatedly called for a Muslim ban.

Khan tells CNN's Christiane Amanpour that Trump's views of Islam "are ignorant".

"It is a reality I'm afraid that London, New York, other major cities around the world have got to be prepared for these sorts of things", he said.

On Monday, Trump once again attacked the London mayor.

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

During the White House briefing Monday, a reporter asked deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders if the president went after Khan because he's Muslim.

Woods told police he was recovering from surgery. "I think he's a good person, and it's kind of sad". Woods then said a statement that it was a reaction to the prescription drugs he had been taking.

"The President was making something that was a very very valid point; That we have to jettison political correctness, we have to apply honesty to the threat, and saying 'it's just business as usual, don't worry about a thing, ' a Pollyannish attitude to a threat that has killed 170 people in the last two years in Europe alone, and maimed more than 700, has to be dealt with honestly".

Three jihadis drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge on Saturday night before running into the bustling Borough Market area where they slit people's throats and stabbed them indiscriminately.

"You will see an increased police presence today, including armed officers and uniformed officers", Khan told London residents.

A minute of silence was held at the vigil Monday and Khan said visitors were welcome to lay tributes.

Prime Minister Theresa May and President Donald Trump walk along The Colonnade of the West Wing at The White House on January 27, 2017.

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

"Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement", Trump tweeted out. MSM is working hard to sell it!"Trump tweeted". "Cancel the state visit and tell Trump where to get off".

However, Mr Khan, the Labour London Mayor, has called on the Government cancel the planned visit on the grounds that the United Kingdom should not "roll out the red carpet" for someone whose "policies go against everything we stand for".

Trump Jr. wrote "You have got to be kidding me?!" above a link to an article reporting comments Khan had made months earlier.
