The mayor on London, Sadiq Khan, got caught in Trump's crosshairs after releasing a statement about increased security.
Trump decided to include just a small portion of the statement in a tweet early on Sunday:
At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!"— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 4, 2017
He then doubled down on his sentiments Monday morning:
Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2017
Unfortunately for Trump, there were many on Twitter who knew the context of the quote:
Khan's statement originally referred to an increased police presence after the attacks, which Twitter was quick to point out:
Prime Minister Theresa May came to Khan's defense, saying, "I think Sadiq Khan is doing a good job and it's wrong to say anything else - he's doing a good job."
May didn't go so far as to criticize Trump over his remarks, however.
But that didn't stop Twitter users from calling out Trump on his bad form:
Including NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio:
Mayor Sadiq Khan is doing an extraordinary job supporting Londoners in a time of pain. President Trump's attack on him is unacceptable.— Bill de Blasio (@NYCMayor) June 5, 2017
