United States mayors back Sadiq Khan in Donald Trump Twitter row

United States mayors back Sadiq Khan in Donald Trump Twitter row

"Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement", Trump said in a second tweet later Monday.

After Mr Trump as a presidential candidate announced his plan, Mr Khan told the BBC he hoped he would "lose badly", adding that he was a "buffoon".

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

On Sunday, a spokesman for the London mayor said he was working with the police, emergency services and government to coordinate the response to the attack, and had "more important things to do" than to respond to Trump.

The article goes on to fact check Trump's recent statements on attacks overseas, including last week's shooting in the Philippines which he wrongly referred to as a "terrorist attack".

Mr Khan called the president "ignorant" and "wrong" in interviews today his strongest remarks since the latest row began, and said the visit should be cancelled. "There is no reason to be alarmed by this".

Djokovic makes winning French Open start on Agassi's watch
Title-holder Djokovic strolled through his opener against Marcel Granollers of Spain, advancing 6-3, 6-4, 6-2. I know how to do this really well. "Since the beginning of the season I am happy the way that I played".

The articles, the posting of the video, and the text that accompanied it - which labelled London Mayor Sadiq Khan an "embarrassment" - all came in the context of a high-profile dispute between Khan and Trump. Mr Khan had been trying to reassure Londoners that they had no need to be alarmed by the extra numbers of armed police deployed in the wake of the terrorist attack on Saturday evening. "Why would you want to stop them coming?"

"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. Still, May never directly criticized the American President for his statements following the attack. In a true shocker, the inexplicably employed CNN contributor and cyborgian Trump loyalist defended Trump's attack on the mayor of a city recovering from a terrorist attack.

Asked about the spat with Mr Trump, Mr Khan told ITV1's Good Morning Britain: "We're not kids in a playground, he's the president of the US".

President Trump has been widely criticized around the world for his attack on Sadiq Khan, and for trying to use the London attack to justify his proposed travel ban.

The Trump administration is expected to take the proposal to the Supreme Court next week.

Lewis Lukens, the acting USA ambassador to the United Kingdom (a permanent one has yet to be confirmed) tweeted: "I commend the strong leadership of the Mayor of London as he leads the city forward after this heinous attack".
