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:
He then doubled down on his sentiments Monday morning:
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:
