Trump renews feud with London mayor over terror attack

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

Mr Khan had said people should not be alarmed by an increased police presence on the streets.

But Mr Trump on Sunday accused him of playing down the threat and on Monday said the mayor’s clarification of his statement was a “pathetic excuse”.

Seven people were killed and 48 injured in the attacks on Saturday night.

After the tragedy, the mayor said: “Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days. No reason to be alarmed.”

The US president criticised Mr Khan for this but failed to provide the context, writing: “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!'”
