DISGRACEFUL: Trump Starts Fight With London's Mayor After Terrorist Attack Further Straining US/UK Ties

If you ever for a moment thought that Donald Trump was anything but a classless piece of garbage...

You were wrong.

The morning after the London terror attacks that killed seven people and wounded dozens more Donald Trump thought it best to start a twitter war with the cities Mayor Sadiq Khan.

It started after Kahn, in an interview on the BBC, tried to reassure a shaken city that had just experience it's third terror related attack in as many months.

Kahn said...

Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days. No reason to be alarmed. One of the things the police and all of us need to do is make sure we’re as safe as we possibly can be.

Trump read this and somehow thought that this would be an opportune time to start criticizing the Mayor...


Perhaps Trump though his base would enjoy the fact that he was attacking the first Muslim mayor of a major European city, though it is more likely that he is just a classless piece of garbage like I said.

Besides taking Kahn's words completely out of context he also ignored the mayor's words from the previous evening when the mayor directly addressed the attack...

My thoughts are with everyone affected, and I’d like to thank the brave men and women of our emergency services who were first on the scene and will be working throughout the night. This was a deliberate and cowardly attack on innocent Londoners and visitors to our city enjoying their Saturday night. I condemn it in the strongest possible terms. There is no justification whatsoever for such barbaric acts.

To Khan's credit he chose not to even address Trump's idiotic attempt to bait him. He instead had a spokesperson release this statement...

The mayor is busy working with the police, emergency services and the government to coordinate the response to this horrific and cowardly terrorist attack and provide leadership and reassurance to Londoners and visitors to our city. 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.

This is not the first time the Mayor has been attacked by the Trump Clan. In March after an attack at Westminster Bridge in which five people died Donald Trump Jr, tweeted...


Just like his dear old dad Trump Jr had taken Kahn's words out of context by cherry picking a speech from six months months before the Westminster attack when Khan was discussing the necessity of providing strong security for Londoners.

Trump and his family are a national embarrassment.
