Police reveals the identity of all three London terrorists

Trump had gone after Khan a day earlier for telling Londoners not to be alarmed, but faced criticism for taking the mayor's remarks out of context.

"Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement". In the tweet, Trump alleges that the Mayor requested Londoners to not be alarmed despite the attacks.

In January of this year, Khan insisted Trump's state visit to Britain be canceled after the US President attempted to impose a travel ban on Muslim nations - a policy that he labeled "cruel and shameful".

Mr Trump had launched a series of comments about Mr Khan, whom he has criticised before, in which he said he was being "politically correct".

Khan said it will be harder to stop future terrorist attacks if Prime Minister Theresa May wins Thursday's general election and carries out planned changes to the Metropolitan Police's funding, reported Bloomberg.

Asked on C4 what he thinks Trump has against him, Khan said, "Since Saturday I've been working with the police, with the emergency services, with the government and others to deal with the horrific attacks..."

Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump told ABC News that the United Kingdom needs to do more to defend against terrorism.

After his election a year ago, Khan tweeted criticism of then-candidate Trump's rhetoric, saying his "ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe".

While she did avoid condemning the president outright, she said that, "Khan is doing a good job and it's wrong to say anything else".

The crowd of all ages and races stood quietly for the impeccably-held minute's silence at a vigil a short walk away from the scene of Saturday's bloodshed in which seven people were killed and 48 injured. The point is there is a reason to be alarmed.

"It's somewhat freakish the way the president went after the mayor", said Senator Ben Cardin, (D) Maryland.

Khan's lengthy statement on Sunday morning, heard in full by Reuters, strongly condemned the attack and gave a number of details about what had happened and what measures were being taken in response. The mayor's team said he has more important things to do than respond to Trump.

"I'm very clear that Sadiq is doing a good job as mayor of London, we are working with him, working together".

However, the acting US ambassador to the UK Lewis Lukens praised Khan's effort and the US Embassy in London tweeted Lukens' comment.

On Monday, Clinton called for strengthened ties with global allies - a clear contrast with Trump, who has in recent days alarmed North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and withdrawn the United States from a Paris climate accord.

"Notice we're not having a gun debate right now, because they didn't kill with guns".
