President Donald Trump on Sunday criticized London civil authority Sadiq Khan for his response to Saturday’s deadly terror attacks within the Greater London a remark that a advocator for the civil authority discharged as “ill-informed.”
In Associate in Nursing early morning tweet, Trump named the amount of dead and wounded within the attack on London Bridge, and perceived to chew up Khan for telling Londoners to not be afraid. The tweet took some of the mayor’s message to residents out of context.

Khan conjointly declared that London wouldn’t be cowered by act of terrorism,
telling town that the threat level remains at severe.
“Severe suggests that Associate in Nursing attack across the country remains extremely seemingly,”
he said, warning voters to be argus-eyed.

Some British politicians were fast to back Khan and denounce Trump’s comment.
Trump’s tweet showed he has very little regard for the “special relationship”
between Britain and also the us, aforesaid Tim Farron, leader of Britain’s Liberal Democrats.
“Sadiq Khan has showed calm and dignified resolve in the face of these cowardly terrorist attacks.
He is more of a statesman than Trump will ever be,” he said in a statement.
