In the midst of a nation reeling from a terror attack, once our ally, Trump attacks the mayor of the city, who happens to be a Muslim. His response was crude, thoughtless, not accurate and not remotely presidential.
Donald Trump’s tweet referencing Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, response to the terror has attack has not only embarrassed this nation, but has caused Khan to once again suggest that Trump is not welcome in the UK. He wrongly suggested that the Mayor said there was no reason to be alarmed by the terror attack. That is not what he said. Trump got it wrong. Khan was letting people the citizens of London know that in response to the terror attack they would be a large police presence and not to be alarmed.
Trump didn’t apologize and sent yet another idiotic tweet:
When asked about Donald Trump’s impending visit to the UK, according to the Huffington Post Khan said,
I don’t think we should be rolling out the red carpet to the president of the USA in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for.
I can’t blame him or any nation that doesn’t want him in their midst. He is a disgrace.
