( Daily Mail ) Donald Trump has criticized London mayor Sadiq Khan just hours after a terror attack in the city on Saturday night left at least seven people dead and 48 injured.
The president took to Twitter early on Sunday morning to criticize Khan for telling residents of his city that there is ‘no reason to be alarmed’ after three terrorists ran over a crowd of people and stabbed several others before being shot dead.
But Khan’s remarks had been taken out of context.
The mayor was talking about an increased police presence in the British capital when he said there was ‘no reason to be alarmed’.
Khan had earlier released a statement condemning the attacks as ‘barbaric’ and ‘cowardly’.
Trump said on Sunday morning: ‘We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people. If we don’t get smart it will only get worse.’
‘At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is “no reason to be alarmed!”‘
‘Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That’s because they used knives and a truck!’
