In an interview published last night, London Mayor Sadiq Khan was criticised by Donald Trump, the President of the United States of America. Trump blamed him for the crime and terrorism in the capital.
Talking to The Sun on the eve prior to his first trip to the United Kingdom as the US President, Trump continued his tirades with the London mayor after he said that the London Mayor “has done a very bad job on terrorism.”
President Trump slammed the migration for the terror attacks in London in 2017.
He stated: “I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad.”
He added: “I look at cities in Europe, and I can be specific if you’d like. You have a mayor who has done a terrible job in London. He has done a terrible job.
Trump continued: “Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place. Look at what is going on in London. I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism.”
The US President also took aim at Khan regarding his handling of crime in London.
He stated: “I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the horrible things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in.”
The City was the victim of four terror attacks that all happened in 2017 at London Bridge, Westminster, Parsons Green Tube Station, and Finsbury Park Mosque.
Donald Trump and Sadiq Khan have been at odds for the past two years after the London Mayor attacked the US President’s “Muslim ban” – a plan to temporarily stop all Muslims from entering the United States of America.
Trump said that he thought that Khan should show a lot more respect for him and his office.
He stated: “I think he has not been hospitable to a government that is very important. Now he might not like the current President, but I represent the United States,” he said.
A spokesperson from the Metropolitan Police refused to comment regarding the matter. He stated: “We don’t want to get into an argument with the President of the United States.
