President Donald Trump, in a recent interview with The Sun, attacked London Mayor Sadiq Khan over rising crime rates in the city and the unprecedented number of terror attacks on his watch.
“Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place. Look at what is going on in London. I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism,” Trump declared, adding “I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the horrible things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in.”
The president continued that “I think he has not been hospitable to a government that is very important. Now he might not like the current President, but I represent the United States.”
Trump has long had a feud with the Mayor of London who has gone out of his way to antagonize the president during his visit by approving a large blimp depicting the president in a diaper. “I used to love London as a city. I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?” he said of the blimp.
At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is “no reason to be alarmed!”

Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his “no reason to be alarmed” statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!

Trump is not scheduled to spend much time in the city with most of his events in the U.K. taking place in the countryside or at his resort in Aberdeen, Scotland.
