Trump sons defend his criticism of London mayor

Donald Trump

But now May has spoken out to say, in guarded terms, that Trump was "wrong".

Mr Khan told the Press Association: "I've said for a long time that I think that the invitation from Prime Minister Theresa May to Donald Trump for a state visit was premature".

After Mr Khan said that the US President had "deliberately" taken his remarks "out of context", Mr Trump doubled down, tweeting: "Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement". Prime Minister Theresa May invited Trump a week after his January 20 inauguration.

Trump is due to be granted a formal state visit to the United Kingdom in October but has in recent days embarked in a series of Twitter attacks on Khan. Chief Judge Roger Gregory argued that the revisions did not hide the real motive for issuing the executive order: "President Trump's desire to exclude Muslims from the United States". The London Mayor was especially vocal against the U.S. President's ban on travel from Muslim-majority countries to the U.S., even going as far as to call it a "shameful" and "cruel" policy.

"I don't think that's actually true", Sanders said.

She also said the planned state visit by Trump will go ahead, despite Khan's opposition.

Khan knows that Trump's tweets have partially served to reinforce the preexisting conflict between the two men.

Former Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, defeated by Trump last November, praised Khan's performance in dealing with the attacks.

Trump used the event to highlight the benefits of his controversial travel ban policy.

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.

Asked if Trump was attacking the mayor because he is Muslim, Sanders replied: "Not at all".

Trump's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., defended his father.

"I just haven't got the time to respond to tweets from Donald Trump".

"Of course we should have cordial relations with our closest ally, of course we should have a special relationship, but one of the things about a special relationship is that its like having best mates - you stand shoulder to shoulder with them in times of adversity, but you call them out when they're wrong, and there are so many things that Donald Trump is wrong about, and in those circumstances I'm not in favour of a state visit".

However, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said he saw no reason to cancel the trip.

"I'd rather he didn't come, but if he does, I'd like his vile Tweets juxtaposed against whatever he's been coaxed to read off an autocue", Rowling, celebrated for her Harry Potter books and a frequent critic of Trump, wrote on Twitter.
