President Trump has already begun to receive backlash for criticizing the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, for his Tweets about “no reason to be alarmed” in the wake of the London terror attacks. Critics are saying that the President took the mayor’s statement out of context.
But although Khan was referring to increased police presence on the streets, many Brits DO see this in itself as a reason to be alarmed. Terrorists attack, and the government response is to turn the UK into a police state!!! This is a major reason to be alarmed!
Just a short time ago, after the Manchester attack, soldiers were on British streets, and although the English love their armed forces, nobody wants to live in a city where we need military personnel on every street corner.
So when Trump calls out Sadiq Khan for saying “no reason to be alarmed,” he is spot-on in every sense. The British public does not want a police state, they do not want to live with a constant terror threat, and they do not want armed military protecting them from 5th columnists in the community. They want Islamic terrorism finished off once and for all!
As reported in the Daily Caller:
“At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!,’” Trump tweeted.
Trump and Khan have had a longstanding feud of sorts. The Mayor of London tweeted in May 2016 that “Trump’s ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe. It risks alienating mainstream Muslims. London has proved him wrong.”
At the time, Scavino, who manages Trump’s social media, replied to Khan and said, “it’s called not being politically correct.” The president’s aide brought back attention to this Sunday and tweeted, “[Mayor of London] – refer to below tweet 13 months ago, after you criticized…now President [Trump] — and WAKE UP!!!!”
