Trump reaches out by attacking London’s mayor

Trump of course made everything worse by being an asshole on Twitter.

Not what a decent head of state is supposed to do.

Naturally people in the UK – once our closest ally, would you believe it?! – are not much pleased.


Donald Trump has sparked fury after hitting out at Sadiq Khan over his response to the London terror attack.


Following the atrocity, Sadiq Khan said he was “grieving” for the victims and said the terrorists “would not win”.

But the US President slammed that response on Twitter, saying: “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’”

He caused confusion with a further tweet, saying: “Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That’s because they used knives and a truck!”

Tottenham MP David Lammy told him: “Stop commenting on what has happened in my city. Put your phone down.”

Funny coincidence, I told him the same thing early this morning when I read his stinking tweets.

“As an international politician, he should know better than taking cheap and unwarranted shots at the people actually on the ground,” a follower agreed.

He should know better and, even more basically, he should be a minimally decent enough human being not to take cheap and unwarranted shots at the people actually on the ground. He has a repulsive instinct for doing the nastiest thing possible in any given situation.

Mr Khan’s statement appeared to have been taken out of context by Mr Trump. The Mayor had said this morning: “Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days.

“There’s no reason to be alarmed.”

A spokesman for Mr Khan later branded Mr Trump’s comment “ill-informed” and said the president had deliberately taken out of context remarks made by the mayor to reassure people about the increased police presence in the wake of the attack.

He said: “The mayor is busy working with the police, emergency services and the Government to co-ordinate the response to this horrific and cowardly terrorist attack and provide leadership and reassurance to Londoners and visitors to our city.

“He has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump’s ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks urging Londoners not to be alarmed when they saw more police – including armed officers – on the streets.”

But our ugly squalid malevolent president has nothing better to do than insult the mayor of the city dealing with the attack.

We apologize to Sadiq Khan, to the people of London, to the world.
