Trump Cites London Attack To Make Gun Control Point

Flanked by Amber Rudd and Diane Abbott, Khan also accused United States President Donald Trump of seeking to divide communities in Britain after he took to the social media to criticise his leadership in the wake of the attack. The Guardian notes that Khan himself said Trump shouldn't be allowed to come to London until he revoked his proposed travel ban on people from six predominantly Muslim countries. For the sin of disagreeing with Trump politically (Khan, who is Muslim, past year slammed Trump's call for a Muslim immigration ban, and voiced support for Hillary Clinton) he has earned Team Trump's scorn.

Khan told British TV station Channel 4 on Monday evening: "I don't think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the U.S. in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for".

No date has been set for the visit, which was agreed during May's visit to Washington in January and viewed as a sign of her desire to maintain good ties with Britain's traditional close ally as Trump began his presidency.

And when Trump actually went to Europe in May, The Post reported he showed more interest in berating European leaders than befriending them.

Politicians in the United Kingdom on Monday called on the prime minister to withdraw the invitation for Mr Trump's state visit later this year.

Reporters repeatedly asked Khan for his thoughts on Trump outside the headquarters of London's Ambulance Service, where he observed a minute of silence Tuesday to honor of the victims of the attacks.

However, he denied Trump's tweets are "official statements", saying that such statements go through several legal filters before they are released.

"The point is, there is a reason to be alarmed".

Seven people were killed in the incident, launched by three armed assailants, and more than 50 were injured. "No reason to be alarmed".

Mr Trump had faced a barrage of criticism on Sunday over an earlier tweet attacking Mr Khan.

Police have not identified the third person killed by police after Saturday's attack.

"I don't see that the president is picking a fight with the mayor of London at all", said deputy press secretary, Sarah Huckabee-Sanders. "All day, every day", Trump Jr. said.

"We write on behalf of individuals who have been blocked from your most-followed Twitter account, @realDonaldTrump, because they disagreed with, criticized, or mocked you or your actions as president", the Knight Institute letter reads. He announced his intentions, if elected, to phone Trump and "ask him if he would kindly reconsider that".
