As Donald Trump escalated his Twitter campaign against London Mayor Sadiq Khan on Monday, Khan appeared on ITV's Good Morning Britain this morning and was asked by co-host Piers Morgan about the Trump situation, implying the U.S. President and Mayor were "at war with each other".
"Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his ´no reason to be alarmed´ statement". In the immediate aftermath of the attack, Khan said there was "no cause for alarm" when referring to a visible increase in police activity on the streets of London.
Mr Khan, a Muslim, has previously criticised the president's plans to temporarily restrict travel to the United States from six mainly Muslim countries.
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. "There are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong".
Khan says he does not think they should roll out the red carpet to the US President in the circumstances where his policies go against everything they stand for.
Meanwhile, Collins said he enjoys Trump's tweets, and so do most of his supporters, "because he's jabbing in a way, working around the press".
"I think Donald Trump has ignorant views about Islam".
The Prime Minister said party politics should be "put to one side" after the U.S. president blasted Sadiq Khan in tweets that were widely condemned by politicians of all stripes.
Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Tuesday that he saw "no reason to rescind" the invitation to Trump for a state visit.
In the recent attack at London Bridge, 7 people were killed and 48 were left injured. "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. "We will never let these cowards win and we will never be cowed by terrorism". Trump, meanwhile, has said that "it is ignorant for him to say that" and has raised questions about London's approach to confronting terrorism.
"But then you go to other countries and you look at Nice and you look at different places all over Europe and you look at what's happening with Germany, it's a mess. My thoughts are with all the victims of this horrific attack #lovewins".
Trump criticises London Mayor.
On Monday, the president attacked the Justice Department for revising the original measure, leaving it "watered down" and "politically correct".
