Donald Trump took the offensive on Twitter yesterday to slam London Mayor Sadiq Khan for the second time in the past few days, this time calling him “pathetic” and attacking the Muslim mayor for telling Londoners there was “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!

“Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his ‘no reason to be alarmed’ statement,” said the U.S. president on the social media platform. “MSM (mainstream media) working hard to sell it!”
Khan responded on Sunday to Trump’s first criticism of his advice to London citizens in the wake of the attack with a spokesperson saying the mayor had “more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump’s ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks.”
On Sunday, mere hours after a terror attack on London Bridge killed seven people of multiple nationalities and injured 48, Trump took to Twitter to chastise Khan over his statement in which the mayor told Londoners they would see “an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days – no reason to be alarmed.” Trump then tweeted “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’”
