Trump denounces 'horrific' London terror attack, vows that 'this bloodshed must end'

"As a proud and patriotic British Muslim, I say this".

May's Conservative government has worked closely with Khan, who represents the rival Labour party, she told the newspaper.

That, he said, is "no reason to be alarmed", adding that "one of the things the. But I would leave a state visit for later".

"Police officers in our communities act as the eyes and ears of the security services, providing the intelligence and information that allow us to disrupt attempted terrorist attacks".

Khan, while being interviewed by the UK's Channel 4 News following a vigil held near the city's famous Tower Bridge, said that as he deals with the fallout from the latest attack on the British capital, he hasn't "got the time to respond to tweets from Donald Trump". But maybe, rather than the mayor of London attacking, maybe he should do something about it. Trump has used the policy, stalled now in U.S. courts, as an example of the sort of toughness that he says Khan refuses to show amid terrorism attacks that are riling the United Kingdom.

Trump on Monday doubled down on his attacks on the London mayor.

When a lone attacker killed five people in London on the Westminster Bridge and its surroundings in March, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a link to those comments by Khan six months earlier.

Still, some people have taken the issue more lightheartedly, suggesting that Trump's tweets were like something out of a DC comic book.

Trump had first criticized Khan Sunday, tweeting, "At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!"

Trump has leaped on the London attacks as evidence of the need for hardline security measures in the United States, including a ban on travelers from some Muslim countries.

Asked if Mr Trump's official trip to Britain will go ahead, Mrs May said: "Yes". Trump said. He followed that by calling the Democrats "obstructionist".

New York City mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted: "Mayor Sadiq Khan is doing an extraordinary job supporting Londoners in a time of pain".

"Not that I'm aware of", White House principal deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at a news conference when asked if the President's tweets were being vetted by lawyers or aides. He forcefully referred to his controversial executive order on immigration-that seeks to block people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the USA - as a "travel ban". "This is a man insulting our national values at a time of introspection and mourning".

Speaking to Channel 4 news, Khan felt Trump's out-of-context criticisms and continued attacks on Twitter meant that the United Kingdom should not "roll out the red carpet" for the president as "his policies go against everything we stand for".

He said: "I am here to show respect to the people who were murdered and the injured.The whole world shows them respect.We will win and continue normal life".

But a spokesman for Mr Khan branded the comment "ill-informed" and said the president had deliberately taken out of context remarks made by the mayor to reassure people about the increased police presence in the wake of the attack.
