Trump's United Kingdom trip should be canceled, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan

President Donald Trump's tweets criticizing London's mayor in the wake of deadly terror attacks in his city were the wrong way to respond - and would be, even for a "toddler", a House Democrat said Tuesday on CNN.

Trump said London Mayor Sadiq Khan had offered a "pathetic excuse" and "had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement".

The mayor of London says he doesn't care about the repeated insults he has received from the president of the United States, asserting Tuesday that he "really couldn't be bothered about what Donald Trump tweets".

Khan responded later to Trump: "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".

"And that's a million miles from the Islam that I know.You speak to the three million-plus British Muslims, they also condemn unequivocally these men", he added. "There are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong", he said. As well as mocking Khan, Trump sought to turn the London attacks to domestic political advantage by renewing his call to ban travel from some Muslim-majority countries.

Trump tweeted about the mayor's seemingly incongruous remark about the police presence in London following the attack. In the interview, Mr Khan was, in fact, urging Londoners not to be alarmed when they see more police and armed officers on the streets as a precautionary measure derived from previous terror attacks.

"MSM [mainstream media] working hard to sell it!" "I think the media wants to spin it that way".

In the initial aftermath from this weekend's attacks in London, Trump tweeted that Khan should be ashamed of himself for telling his citizens there's "no reason to be alarmed".

The war of words was the latest episode in a long simmering conflict between Trump and Khan, a Muslim who was elected as London's mayor in May 2016. The point is there is a reason to be alarmed.

Trump on Monday doubled down on his attacks on the London mayor. "Two weeks later he's proven to be right", Trump Jr. said.

"It happened again, and we keep appeasing it, and we keep saying, 'OK, it's gonna be great. And I think that's what [my father is] trying to say because he's been proven right every time".

As for Trump, Khan acknowledges that Britain and the US have a "special relationship", no matter who is president.
