Donald Trump Is Not Welcome In London Says Mayor Sadiq Khan

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan

That, he said, is "no reason to be alarmed", adding that "one of the things the".

A spokesperson for Khan Sunday called Trump's remark "ill-informed" and said it took the mayor's words out of context.

The attack raised security as a major theme of the general election, set for Thursday 8 June. "No reason to be alarmed".

In particular, they foresee Democratic accusations that Trump's exchanges with Comey about the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign were an effort to obstruct justice.

Though Clinton did not name Trump particularly, her comments seemed to reference the president's tweets.

"It's not policy, it's not an executive order. And what they have been given is just petty politics and insults", Inslee told CNN's Ana Cabrera.

A few minutes later, Mr Trump's scattered thoughts turned to guns and he tweeted: Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? At the time, Mr Trump said he was "happy" London had elected Mr Khan and suggested the Labour politician was likely to be part of the exception to his plans for a barring Muslims.

As the horror unfolded in London, Trump, presumably watching on television, spotted a political opening, and touted his blocked plan to restrict entry into the United States of residents of a group of mostly Muslim nations.

President Donald Trump lashed out at his own Justice Department Monday for seeking the Supreme Court's backing for a "watered down, politically correct version" of the travel ban he signed in March instead of a broader directive that was also blocked by the courts. Trump tweeted Saturday after the attack.

The ban has been blocked by U.S. courts but last week, Mr Trump's administration formally asked the Supreme Court to allow it to take effect, arguing that restricting immigration by refugees and visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen is necessary for national security. Trump has used the policy, stalled now in USA courts, as an example of the sort of toughness that he says Khan refuses to show amid terrorism attacks that are riling the United Kingdom. Today, he also accused the American courts of being "slow" and "political". The mounting evidence since January 20 shows that Trump's notion of leadership revolves around creating a politics of unreasonably low expectations so that any measure of near-adult behavior by the man will be seen as remarkable, or even presidential, while his hopes abound that the normal methods of judging legislators will fade from view.

Trump also stressed that his proposal was a "travel ban", a description his aides have disputed in the past.

"I don't know how to tell you this, but I really don't care", Khan told the Associated Press when asked questions regarding Trump's tweets, noting he "really couldn't be bothered about what Donald TrumpDonald TrumpLondon mayor on Trump tweets: "I really don't care" Trump decides against Russian Federation investigation "war room": report Linda McMahon: "We're not even staffed up to where we need to be" MORE tweets".

Prime Minister Theresa May came to Khan's defense, saying he was doing a "good job" and that they were working together closely in the wake of the weekend attack.
