Donald Trump has renewed his attack on Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, over his reaction to the terror attack at London Bridge and Borough Market.
Khan had told Londoners there was “no reason to be alarmed” about an increased police presence in the coming days.
Trump has leapt on the London attacks as evidence of the need for hardline security measures in the United States, including a “ban” on travelers from Muslim countries.
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!

Trump’s comments caused outrage among British officials, many of whom call London home.
British Prime Minister Theresa May was among those who came to Khan’s defense.
“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 staff said he was too busy to respond to Trump’s tweets.
