Two of the London Bridge/Borough Market attackers from Barking - Third man named

London Mayor Sadiq Khan escalated his war of words with President Trump late Monday, suggesting the US president's planned state visit to Britain should be canceled.

Trump launched an astonishing attack on Mr Khan just hours after three terrorists killed seven people in London on Saturday night.

In a second tweet, Trump said: "Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement".

Khan on Monday called on the British government to cancel a state visit from Trump.

Khan told broadcaster Channel 4 that Britain should not "roll out the red carpet" for Trump, while Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said May "must withdraw the state visit".

Khan went on to add that in a special relationship, you need to call out your friends even when they are wrong, implying that it was wrong on Trump's part to share such views. You stand with them in times of adversity but you call them out when they are wrong.

She told The Sun that the President's comments about Khan were "wrong" and said politics should be put aside during terror attacks.

Khan's comments came after Trump criticized the mayor's reaction to Saturday's London attack.

"Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days".

Trump expects Senate health care bill in summer
Susan Collins of ME , have explicitly said that they would like the GOP to pursue a comprehensive and bipartisan health care bill. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., on Tuesday accused Trump of holding the subsidies "hostage".


Mr Khan's spokesman initially said the mayor had "more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet".

"I think he's a very, very unsafe man", Himes said of Trump, "and touches on some of the uglier undercurrents of American politics".

"MSM [mainstream media] working hard to sell it!"

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan speaks to reporters at the London Ambulance Service headquarters at Waterloo, central London, Tuesday June 6, 2017.

British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson - Khan's predecessor as mayor of London - told BBC radio Tuesday that "the invitation has been issued and accepted and I see no reason to change that".

Khan said earlier this year Trump should be denied a state visit to Britain due to his "cruel and shameful" immigration policies.

"At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'" the former reality TV star said on Twitter. "And I think that's what he's trying to say because he's been proven right every time".

It was not until the Westminster attack in March of this year that Mr Khan again had friction with the Trump family.
