Trump renews Twitter attack on London's mayor

In his response to Saturday's London attacks, Donald Trump on Sunday criticised London Mayor Sadiq Khan for saying that there was no reason to be alarmed.

The Mayor of London recently called on the government to rescind President Trump's state visit.

"I don't think we should be rolling out the red carpet to the president of the U.S. in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for", said Khan, who has heavily criticized Trump since he called for a "total and complete shutdown" of Muslims entering the United States when he was still a presidential candidate. "MSM is working hard to sell it!", Trump said in a Tweet.

"I don't wish to enter into a row between those two individuals who are I think are probably perfectly able to stick up for themselves", he said of Trump and Khan. Trump's tweet came under sharp criticism as other world leaders sent messages of support and solidarity to the U.K. Amid the backlash, Trump followed up with yet another tweet attacking Khan.

He is also the first player since Wilt Chamberlain in 1967 to average a triple-double over the first two Finals games. You'd think Brown would have some choice words for the organisation, given they fired him twice - first in 2010.

But Mr. Trump mischaracterized Khan's statement to London residents following a vehicle and knife attack that left seven people dead and dozens injured.

The ex-LBC radio host has appeared on the Fox News channel in the wake of the attack on Saturday night, on a programme that Trump is known to watch religiously.

Prime Minister May, the Conservative Party leader, was asked earlier on Monday about Trump's criticism of Khan. All three attackers were shot dead by police.

"There's no reason to be alarmed", he says. Trump wrote. MSM referred to mainstream media.

Qatar has also been expelled from a Saudi-led coalition fighting against rebels who overthrew the government in Yemen. Qatar has dismissed the terrorism charge and welcomed a Kuwaiti mediation effort.

Khan, who belongs to the opposition Labour Party and is the first Muslim to be elected mayor of a major Western European city, is popular in London and his response to Saturday's killings has been widely praised as dignified. No reason to be alarmed. A spokesman for Khan responded that the mayor "has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context" his remarks. One of the things the police, all of us, need to do is make sure we're as safe as we possibly can be.

Khan said earlier this year Trump should be denied a state visit to Britain due to his "cruel and shameful" immigration policies.

He went much further in Monday's tweet.

"I just haven't got time to respond to tweets from Donald Trump". We aren't going to allow anybody, whether it is Donald Trump or anybody else, to divide our communities.

Additionally, the attackers launched a "spear-phishing" attack on local government officials in charge of voting in some areas. Victor admitted to intentionally leaking the classified document when confronted with the allegations, prosecutors said.
