LONDON: London Mayor Sadiq Khan accused Donald Trump on Monday of seeking to divide communities in Britain after the US president criticised his leadership following a terror attack in the city.
“Some people thrive on feud and division.
We are not going to let Donald Trump divide our communities,” Khan told the BBC.
Trump stated on Twitter Monday morning that London Mayor Sadiq Khan had offered a “pathetic excuse” and “had to think fast on his ‘no reason to be alarmed’ statement.”
Trump’s tweet renews his mischaracterization of Khan’s statement to London residents following a vehicle and knife attack that left seven people dead and dozens injured. The mayor had told London residents not to be concerned by a stepped-up police presence in the city after the incident.
