President Trump slams London mayor’s complacency; demands travel ban
After the London Bridge and Borough Market attacks that left at least seven dead and nearly 50 injured, President Trump late Saturday urged the courts to approve his executive order banning travel from six Muslim-majority countries.
“We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights,” Trump tweeted. “We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!”
Sadiq Khan, London’s first Muslim mayor, has condemned Trump’s proposed travel ban, saying that “London has proved him wrong.” And how is that?!
Khan was the guy who said after the September bombing in New York City that injured 29 people that terrorism is “part and parcel of living in a big city.”
He was more concerned at the time with air pollution. Terrorism attacks shouldn’t necessarily change security plans, he said, but does demand serious action on air pollution – and on Labour’s ongoing troubles. Say What!?
Trump is tired of Khan’s smug, stupid complacency. “If we don’t get smart,” he said, “terrorism will only get worse. We must get down to the business of securing our people.”
It’s no secret that Trump and Khan hate each other. During the American election last year Khan said he hoped Hillary Clinton would “trounce” Trump.
Well, that didn’t happen. If Khan doesn’t want to listen to Trump maybe he should listen to what people on both sides of the Atlantic posted across the social network after Saturday’s carnage:
You tell him Trump! The guy’s a crackpot.
LONDON IS NOT SAFE. TRUMP IS RIGHT. WAKE UP LONDONERS. YOU NEED TO CHANGE MAYORS. HE IS OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY.
Exactly! It is a coward who refuses to admit a problem because then he would be expected to confront the problem!
Kahn’s a mug.
