The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has dismissed criticism from US President Donald Trump over his response to Saturday’s terror attack.
The attack in London Bridge and Borough Market killed seven and injured 48.
President Trump accused London Mayor Sadiq Khan of downplaying the attack by telling Londoners there was “no reason to be alarmed”.
The Hill reported: London mayor Sadiq Khan’s spokesperson responded to criticism from President Trump on Sunday by saying Khan had “more important things to do” than respond.
Khan’s spokesperson said that the mayor too is busy coordinating the response to the “horrific and cowardly terrorist attack” to fully respond to Trump’s early Sunday morning tweet, BuzzFeed News reported.
“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,” the spokesperson said.
Trump tweeted Sunday that the “Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’” after a terror attack in London left at least seven dead and nearly 50 wounded. Khan had told residents to not be alarmed by an increased police presence in the city.
