Trump sons defend his criticism of London mayor

London's Mayor Says 'We Will Never Let These Cowards Win' After Attack

As the attack unfolded, Khan released a statement on his Facebook page updating the public on the situation and urging citizens to "remain calm and vigilant".

"But the fact is we need to make sure the police have the resources and support they need, and as the mayor, my job is to make our city safe and I'll do my best as the mayor to be an advocate and champion for our police to get the tools they need".

In a morning appearance on the U.K.'s Sky News, Khan was asked how authorities can stop future attacks in the city. All three attackers were shot dead by police. The mayor had told London residents not to be concerned by a stepped-up police presence in the city after the incident. "There is no reason to be alarmed by this".

Up to now, the president had expressed his views only on Twitter.

The Prime Minister was repeatedly challenged over her record as home secretary when she presided over cuts that have seen 20,000 fewer police officers on the country's street.

Khan said he had been too busy dealing with the fallout from the attack to respond directly to the tweet. He took the Mayor of London's quotes out of context, and even when corrected, argued that Khan was making a "pathetic excuse". "Thank you, Mayor Khan, for your leadership during this crisis".

Legal challenges to the executive order contend that it amounts to an unconstitutional religious test, something borne from Trump's campaign when he repeatedly called for a Muslim ban.


What was potentially missing at the weekend was an ambassador who was able to immediately reach high-ranking officials at the White House, the National Security Council or the Department of State to manage communications and set a tone moving forward.

"State visits are given to world leaders who have had a distinguished service, who have a track record, and in the circumstances, where Donald Trump as president had a Muslim ban, had changed the policies of the U.S., the long-standing policies around refugees, in the circumstances when many British people disagree with many of Donald Trump's policies, we shouldn't be having a state visit".

The 46-year-old mayor, who assumed office in May 2016 after serving in Parliament, generally praised the "special relationship" between the United States and Britain. And as the president of the world's superpower, Mr Trump should be advised to do the same: think before he tweets.

Trump's first tweet after the attack was more sympathetic, saying: "Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U". Every once in a while, in an interview, he'll say a "strong Europe" is important to him. It happened again and we keep appeasing it and keep saying, 'okay, it's going to be great.

"Keep Calm and Carry On" was a phrase produced by the British government at the beginning of World War II to raise morale and encourage fortitude during troubling times.

"Every time he puts something out there he gets criticized by the media".
