06 Juin, 2017, 11:52 | Author: Claudine Rigal

Trump mocked Khan's comment on Sunday, suggesting in a tweet that the mayor was downplaying the attacks.

US President Donald Trump has again lashed out at London Mayor Sadiq Khan over his assurances to Londoners following Saturday's terror attack.

'Police services have become much more efficient, ' she said, adding: 'In the face of this changing threat, I will be seeking for London and for policing generally more resourcing'. "You've got to be prepared for these things, you've got to be vigilant". "Work is ongoing to understand more about them, their connections and whether they were assisted or supported by anyone else". "He is wrong about his travel ban on Muslims, and he is wrong about many other things". "We are not going to let Donald Trump divide our communities", Khan told the BBC.

"What would Donald Trump have to say for you to criticize him publicly?" a reporter asked, addressing the issue more directly.

Khan called him a "buffoon" in December of 2015.

Trump's tweet renewed his mischaracterization of Khan's statement to London residents following the attack that left seven people dead and dozens injured. "No reason to be alarmed", was the full statement.

A row erupted between as Mr Trump mocked the Mayor of London for saying there was "no reason to be alarmed" by the additional police presence on the capital's streets following the attack. "[Mainsteam media] is working hard to sell it!" the commander-in-chief tweeted at 9:49 a.m.

Theresa May praised Mr Khan for his handling of the attack. I think the media wants to spin it that way.

He argues the measure is needed to prevent attacks in the USA, but critics say the policy is discriminatory and has little national security justification.

Khan had made the comment about not being alarmed in a Sunday morning statement about heightened police activity. May said the vote would take place as scheduled Thursday because "violence can never be allowed to disrupt the democratic process".

However, although Trump announced on January 19 he had picked Woody Johnson, the owner of the New York Jets, to be the ambassador to the UK, Johnson has yet to be formally nominated to the Senate for confirmation.

Trump responded on a British television show, saying he would "remember" Khan's words.

Trump and Khan have traded criticism since before the real estate mogul was elected United States president.

Trump's criticism of the mayor revived a spat with Khan from the 2016 campaign, when Khan responded to questions about candidate Trump's proposed ban on Muslim visitors to the United States.
