Theresa May Criticizes Trump for Sparring With London Mayor

10 June 2017, 07:06 | Bernice Figueroa

Boris Johnson has launched a strident defence of his successor, Labour's Sadiq Khan, in the row between the London Mayor and Donald Trump but says there is no reason to rescind the US President's state visit scheduled for later in the year.

Khuram Shazad Butt, 27 and Rachid Redouane, 30, both of Barking, carried out the attack with a third assailant, named on Tuesday as Youssef Zaghba, which killed seven people and injured 48.

"Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement", Trump tweeted on Monday.

The London Mayor has now said the United Kingdom should not "roll out the red carpet" for President Trump.

Theresa May had earlier dodged repeated questioning about President Trump's tweets, declining to criticise the president and instead opting to praise Mr Khan and their close working relationship following the attacks.

"And that's a million miles from the Islam that I know.You speak to the three million-plus British Muslims, they also condemn unequivocally these men", he added.

Khan's spokesperson said Trump took the mayor's words out of context.


"MSM [mainstream media] working hard to sell it!"

The criticism came two days after Trump tweeted criticism of the Muslim mayor, who had told Londoners not to be alarmed by an increased police presence on London streets following the attack.

While he covered a few different topics, including Russian Federation, there was one answer that stood out in particular: his thoughts on his father's inflammatory tweets about London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Following Kahn's statement to the press, President Trump, again, sent out a tweet criticizing London's first Muslim mayor. The point is there is a reason to be alarmed.

The Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow has already said Trump will not be allowed to address Parliament after his travel ban, aimed at Muslim majority countries, sparked outrage among many MPs and a petition calling for Trump to be banned from Britain. "I think it's time for the people there to probably act and do something a lot more proactive than what's been going on, and I do think that's something people have to do. And I think that's what [my father is] trying to say because he's been proven right every time".

Reporters repeatedly asked Khan for his thoughts on Trump outside the headquarters of London's Ambulance Service, where he observed a minute of silence Tuesday to honor of the victims of the attacks.
