Trump sons defend his criticism of London mayor

"Maybe he should do something to fix the problem rather than just sit there and pretend there isn't one".

President Donald Trump's two adult sons are defending their father's controversial Twitter attack against London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Khan said Saturday said Londoners should not be alarmed by an increased police presence on the city's streets.

When Mr Khan issued a statement saying he was too busy dealing with the aftermath of a terror attack to respond to the President's comments, Mr Trump doubled down with a second insult.

This had been followed by Mr Trump firing off an incendiary barrage of tweets attacking Mr Khan for his plea for calm - and promoting his contentious travel ban on several Muslim-majority countries.

"Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his ´no reason to be alarmed´ statement".

"At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!'" Trump tweets".

Trump accused Khan of making a "pathetic excuse" over his statement urging Londoners not to be alarmed by the presence of additional police on the streets in response to the attack.

Reporters repeatedly asked Khan for his thoughts on Trump outside the headquarters of London's Ambulance Service, where he observed a minute of silence Tuesday to honor of the victims of the attacks.

Trump and Khan have spent the previous year sniping at one another, largely over Trump's proposed travel ban that would temporarily bar some Muslims from entering the United States. Trump wrote. MSM referred to mainstream media.

"I don't know how to tell you this, but I really don't care", he told The Associated Press.

And some Labour Party candidates and parliamentarians called for Trump's state visit to the United Kingdom later this year to be cancelled, the BBC reported.

Prime Minister Theresa May, asked by The Sun newspaper whether the controversial trip would go ahead, answered "Yes".

"In the circumstances where Donald Trump as president had a Muslim ban, had changed the policies of the U.S., the longstanding policies around refugees, in the circumstances where many British people disagree with many of Donald Trump's policies, we shouldn't be having a state visit", he said.

More than 1.8 million people have signed an online petition saying Trump should not make the state visit as it "could cause embarrassment" to the monarch. They drew an implicit rebuke by the acting US ambassador to the United Kingdom, who praised Khan's "strong leadership" on Twitter.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said she did not think it was fair to characterize Trump's tweets as "picking a fight" with Khan, who is the first Muslim elected as London mayor.

"At a time when anti-Semitic hate crimes are on the rise - when Americans, Muslims, African-Americans, Latinos are being targeted for racism; when violence motivated by hatred from Portland, Oregon, to College Park, ends the lives of young Americans, this program's vision of spreading tolerance is more urgent than ever", Clinton said. They love Britain, they want to come here to study, to be a tourist, to start up a business, to work, to learn. You stand with them in times of adversity, but you call them out when they are wrong.

"You besmirch the presidency, you taint previous Presidents with your behaviour & you bring shame on your great country and its great people". We are the safest global city in the world.
