Trump says vile enemy' has waged war on us for too long

Trump and Khan, the son of Pakistani immigrants and the first Muslim elected as London's mayor, have been at odds since Khan denounced as "ignorant" Trump's campaign pledge to impose a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States.

Earlier Theresa May defended the mayor, while stopping short of directly criticising Mr Trump.

Trump's middle son, Eric Trump said, "This has become the new norm".

White House social media director Dan Scavino has denied reports that as the Trump White House struggles with its legislative agenda and FBI and congressional investigations into ties between Trump aides and Russian Federation, lawyers are now monitoring the president's tweets.

He received wide condemnation from other users on the social media site for the statement, with one person tweeting that he was an "Opportunist-in-Chief".

"This bloodshed must end, this bloodshed will end", he said, with his wife Melania beside him.

In an interview with ABC's Good Morning America, Donald Trump Jr. said London's Mayor Sadiq Khan "should do something to fix the problem rather than just sit there and pretend there isn't one". "I'm too busy to respond to his tweets, isn't he busy?"

Trump said he had spoken with British Prime Minister Theresa May to express America's "unwavering support" and offer USA assistance as the British government works to protect its citizens and bring the guilty to justice.

The Metropolitan Police is facing the loss of thousands of front line officers under Conservative spending plans, London mayor Sadiq Khan has warned.

Trump also posted on Twitter Sunday that "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".

However, Khan had actually said: "Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days".

A spokesman said the mayor is focused on "working with the police, the emergency services and the government to keep London safe".

In a brief speech at the vigil, London Mayor Sadiq Khan seemed to speak for many as he voiced his sorrow and anger. Mr Trump criticised Mr Khan on Twitter for saying there was "no reason to be alarmed" after the attack .

In another tweet, Mr Trump wrote: "Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now?" He called the courts, which have blocked both versions of the travel ban, "slow and political".

Trump's first comment after the attack came late Saturday on Twitter. "We need the courts to give us back our rights".

Khan is among those who have asked the government to reconsider the invitation, describing the state visit as "inappropriate" given the president's months-long push for a travel ban for passengers from several Muslim majority nations. "We need the travel ban as an extra level of safety!"

The courts have ruled that plaintiffs are likely to succeed in showing that the policy violates United States constitutional prohibitions on religious discrimination.

Khan previously called for the visit to be cancelled following Trump's travel ban on mainly Muslim countries in January.
