Trump Blasts London Mayor Sadiq Khan for Saying ‘No Reason to Be Alarmed’ After London Attack

President Trump ripped into London’s left-wing Mayor Sadiq Khan Sunday in the wake of a terror attack at the London Bridge that left seven dead and dozens injured. Khan told Londoners there is “no reason to be alarmed,” referring to the armed police officers being dispatched, but Trump’s ambiguous remarks resulted in him being attacked by an unyielding media.

“At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is “no reason to be alarmed!” –@realDonaldTrump

Terrorists drove a van through crowds near London Bridge Saturday night, before rampaging through a nearby market and stabbing people, before they were eventually being shot by armed police.

Khan, who became London’s first Muslim mayor last year and has become known for making bizarre remarks about terrorism, told Londoners that there was nothing to be alarmed about as the city ramps up its police presence in the wake of the attack.

“Londoners should be aware that there will be additional armed and unarmed police officers on our streets from tonight in order to keep Londoners, and all those visiting out city safe,” he said.

“I want to reassure all Londoners, and all our visitors, not to be alarmed. Our city remains one of the safest in the world,” he said.


Khan also reportedly said that London is “one of the safest global cities in the world if not the safest global cities in the world” just hours after the attack.

Khan has become well-known in America for his politically correct statements about terrorism. In September, Khan said terrorism is “part and parcel of living in a big city” and in May last year called Trump’s views on Muslims “ignorant.”

“London has proved him wrong,” he said.
