Donald Trump ‘wrong’ to attack Sadiq Khan, says PM | London


Theresa May has directly condemned US President Donald Trump’s Twitter attacks on London Mayor Sadiq Khan as “wrong”.

President Trump fired off a series of critical tweets over Mr Khan’s handling of the London Bridge terror attack, mocking the mayor’s comments that there was “no reason to be alarmed” over armed police on the streets.

The row between Mr Trump and Mr Khan saw the US President dismiss criticism of his original post on the subject by redoubling his attack, accusing Mr Khan of making a “pathetic excuse”.

The relationship with America is our deepest and most important defence and security relationship.

Having said that, I think Donald Trump is wrong in what he said about Sadiq Khan, in relation to the attack on London Bridge.

We’ve been working with Sadiq Khan. When you’re working in the aftermath of an attack like that, party politics is put to one side.

– Theresa May, speaking to The Sun
