Donald Trump continues to shamefully attack London Mayor Sadiq Khan by continuing to twist his words following the latest terrorist attacks in the United Kingdom.
On Sunday, Trump attacked Khan, claiming he told residents “not to be alarmed” about the terrorist attack that claimed seven lives and injured 48. In fact, Khan was referring to the increased police presence in the aftermath of the attack.
At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!"

On Monday, Trump tweeted: “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!”

Um, the media isn’t working to sell his words. Donald Trump is twisting his words and it’s just despicable. CNN host Reza Aslan was right when he tweeted that Donald Trump is a “piece of shit” before he deleted it on Sunday.
Here’s Mayor Khan’s full statement, which Trump took out of context: “Londoners will see increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days. There’s no reason to be alarmed.” (Watch Mayor Khan’s full statement following the London attacks below)
We are all shocked and angry today – but this is our city. We will never let these cowards win and we will never be cowed by terrorism. pic.twitter.com/o7ZMwg28mv

Reaction on Twitter:
Why would you intentionally warp the mayor's words from their obvious context? Whatever is wrong with you is getting worse by the day. https://t.co/GptjV4xsrx

Looks like baby-in-chief is still upset that someone who's actually important won't pay attention to him. https://t.co/0bdesInv3p

Pathetic excuse for a president. Intellect was never there, but not even an ounce of human decency. Pathetic https://t.co/paZ5mxMgXd
