US mayors back Sadiq Khan in Donald Trump Twitter row


Prime Minister Theresa May, the Conservative Party leader, was asked earlier on Monday about Trump's criticism of Khan.

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.

"I don't think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the United States of America in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for", Khan said in an interview with Britain's Channel 4 News.

USA president Donald Trump has described the London Bridge terror attack as "horrific" and vowed that "this bloodshed must end".

That appears to be in response to Mr Khan's comments that Londoners shouldn't be alarmed by the increased presence of armed police on the streets, a standard reassurance during the deployment of armed officers. No reason to be alarmed.

Trump's latest missive at Khan was part of several Monday morning tweeted statements from the president.

Khan's spokesman said he was too busy to respond to Trump's "ill-informed" tweet and Khan later told the BBC that "some people thrive on feud and division. There are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong", he said.

"Cuts on this scale would make it harder to foil future terrorist attacks on our city - and as the mayor of London I'm simply not willing to stand by and let that happen".

In March, after an attack by an Islamic militant that left five people dead in Westminster, central London, Trump's son Donald Trump Jr. issued a tweet that criticized Khan.

The condemnation has been led by Tony Blair's former press secretary Alastair Campbell, who likened Trump's strategist Steve Bannon to a Nazi officer in a volcanic tweet.

In a Sunday tweet, Trump mischaracterized Khan's remarks by suggesting the mayor had said there was "no reason to be alarmed" about the attack itself.

Notably, even the United States Embassy appreciated Khan in the aftermath of the London terror attack with Acting Ambassador Lew Lukens commending the London mayor's leadership. He said on Twitter that others "can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!" "We have constant attacks going on, not just there, but across the globe, and we have to start putting national security and global security at an all-time high", she said. The mayor had told London residents not to be concerned by a stepped-up police presence in the city after the incident.

What the Qatar feud means for the United States
As the forward headquarters of US Central Command , it is seen as crucial in the US-led campaign against the Islamic State group. As David notes, "the biggest USA air base in the Middle East is in Qatar, while the Navy's fifth fleet is based in Bahrain".


His administration last week asked the US Supreme Court to immediately reinstate the ban - and today he called on the US Justice Department to attempt to speed up the process, and "seek a much tougher version".
