Trump lashes out at London's mayor, again

Trump lashes out at London's mayor, again
Trump launched an attack on the London Mayor, while apparently misconstruing a statement made by him post the incident.
Trump's comments drew widespread scorn in Britain but the USA leader went on the attack again on Monday, saying in a tweet: "Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement". "MSM is working hard to sell it!"
Khan, while being interviewed by the UK's Channel 4 News following a vigil held near the city's famous Tower Bridge, said that as he deals with the fallout from the latest attack on the British capital, he hasn't "got the time to respond to tweets from Donald Trump". "There is no reason to be alarmed by this". "We have constant attacks going on, not just there but across the globe, and we have to start putting national security and global security at an all time high", she told a White House briefing.
Khan's spokesman repeated his response of a day earlier: "Nothing has changed since yesterday".
On Monday, Jeremy Corbyn called for her resignation over the issue, and former David Cameron aide Steve Hilton said Mrs May should take responsibility for the problems facing police forces.
"America sends our thoughts and prayers and our deepest sympathies to the victims of this evil slaughter and we renew our resolve, stronger than ever before, to protect the United States and its allies from a vile enemy that has waged war on innocent life, and it's gone on too long", Trump said.
"I think Sadiq Khan is doing a good job and it's wrong to say anything else - he's doing a good job", she told a press conference on Monday.
Khan's statement on Sunday morning condemned the attack and gave a number of details about what had happened and what measures were being taken in response. It's being touted that he was referring specifically to "a visible increase in police activity on the streets of London in the wake of the attack".
"I think that the point is there is reason to be alarmed", Sanders replied. "One of the things the police, all of us need to do is make sure we're as safe as we possibly can be", Khan said.
Trump said London Mayor Sadiq Khan had offered a "pathetic excuse" and "had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement".
Donald Trump Jr stepped in to defend his father, saying the London Mayor needed to "do something to fix the problem rather than sit there and pretend there isn't one".
The president spent much of the weekend responding to the attack on Twitter.
The president's decision to lash out at the London mayor was widely questioned, with several critics asking why Trump was picking a fight with Khan as his city attempts to recover from Saturday's attacks.
"Honestly, I've got better and more important things to focus on".
The two men have history.
In January of this year, Khan insisted Trump's state visit to Britain be canceled after the US President attempted to impose a travel ban on Muslim nations - a policy that he labeled "cruel and shameful".
A day after bombings in NY and New Jersey, Khan tells The London Standard that attacks are "part and parcel" of life in major cities.
