Hillary Clinton Criticizes Donald Trump Over His Response to London Terror Attack

Following the attack, the London mayor released a statement warning his constituents that their city would have an intensified police presence.

A YouGov poll of 1,000 Londoners published on Monday found that Khan was more trusted than both May and national Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to make the right decisions about keeping Britain safe from terrorism."My focus from Saturday night has been working with the police the emergency services and the government to deal with the horrific attack on Saturday", Khan told Sky News when asked about Trump's latest tweet."I just haven't got time to respond to tweets from Donald Trump".

Trump also stressed that his proposal was a "travel ban", a description his aides have disputed in the past.

Meanwhile, even as Trump vows to be tough on terrorism, Politico noted, he has yet to nominate anyone to such key security and diplomatic posts as Transportation Security Administration chief, assistant attorney general for national security, ambassador to Britain, and Federal Bureau of Investigation director. "Cancel the state visit and tell Trump where to get off".

Less than two weeks after a suicide bomber killed 22 and injured scores more at an Ariana Grade concert in Manchester, Islamic terrorists killed seven and injured another 48 people during an attack on London Bridge. Khan's spokesman said he was too busy to respond to Trump's "ill-informed" tweet.

Mr Trump, during a series of tweets following the London Bridge terror assault, misrepresented Mr Khan's statement that there was "no reason to be alarmed" when seeking to reassure Londoners.

Mr Trump hit back, however, tweeting: "Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement".

Khan says that London residents should expect to see an intensified police presence in the wake of the attacks. "There's no reason to be alarmed".

A day after bombings in NY and New Jersey, Khan tells The London Standard that attacks are "part and parcel" of life in major cities. "MSM is working hard to sell it!", Trump said in a Tweet.

In March 2017, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a link to a September 2016 story in which Khan is quoted as saying terror attakcs are "part in parcel of living in a big city".

There are many things about which Donald TrumpDonald TrumpLondon mayor calls for cancellation of Trump visit to UK Dan Rather: "Trump's response to London attack "careless" Qatar split raises problems for USA with Iran, ISIS MORE is wrong".

"I don't think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the U.S. in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for", Khan said to Britain's Channel 4 News.

Trump again hammers Khan, saying the mainstream media is abetting Khan's timidity.

British Prime Minister Theresa May was among those who came to Khan's defense.
