Trump And WH Aide Go After London’s Mayor Following Terror Attack Photo of Alex Pfeiffer Alex Pfeiffer
From The Daily Caller
President Donald Trump and White House aide Dan Scavino criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan Sunday for his response to Islamic terrorism.
“At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!,'” Trump tweeted. This seems to be a misquote from the president, as in context Khan was speaking about the police presence in the days to come. Three terrorists rammed a car into London Bridge pedestrians Saturday night and continued to go on a stabbing rampage.
The mayor said in a statement Sunday that: “Londoners will say an increase police presence today and over the course of the next few days. No reason to be alarmed.” A spokesman for the mayor said that Khan “has more important things to do” than reply to an “ill-informed” Trump tweet.
