According to REUTERS, Republican President Donald Trump “once again criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan on Monday over his response to a deadly attack on the city, while the British public and politicians lauded the mayor for his handling of the aftermath.”
“Khan had said on Sunday morning that people would see an increased police presence on the streets of the capital and should not be alarmed by that.”

“Trump’s comments drew widespread scorn in Britain but the U.S. leader went on the attack again on Monday, saying in a tweet:”
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!

“Khan said he had been too busy dealing with the fallout from the attack to respond directly to the tweet.”
