Top US diplomat hails London mayor after Trump's criticism

Investigators examined the rented van that mowed down pedestrians on the London Bridge before continuing their assault, stabbing numerous people at bars and restaurants in the nearby Borough Market.

He also went after the Mayor of London, tweeting, "At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and mayor of london says there is "no reason to be alarmed!"

President Donald Trump is criticizing London's mayor on Twitter after he sought to reassure residents about a stepped-up police presence on city streets following a deadly attack there.

President Donald Trump is denouncing as "horrific" the attack on London and vowing that "this bloodshed must end".

"As soon as we heard about the incident we immediately suspended dynamic pricing all around the area of the attacks - and shortly afterward across the whole of central London - just as we did following the attacks in Manchester and Westminster", he said.

May said Monday that Britain's counterterrorism operations are fully funded, but London Mayor Sadiq Khan - a Labour figure - said cuts to police have been draconian.

According to the SITE Intelligence Group, the Islamic State's official Amaq News Agency posted a message on Telegram on Sunday claiming that Saturday's attacks at the London Bridge and the Borough Market here were carried out by ISIS fighters.

Khan swiftly shot down the U.S. president's remarks, made in a series of overnight tweets, as critics accused Trump of exploiting a terror attack for political gain - and not for the first time.

Trump is calling out Mayor Sadiq Khan for saying there's "no reason to be alarmed". You will see an increased police presence today, including armed officers and uniformed officers.

Trump said the attack showed it was time to "stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people, ' after tweeting the night before - as the scenes of panic in London were still unfolding - that it underscored the need for his contested 'travel ban" on several Muslim-majority nations.

The mayor's spokesman said he was too busy to respond to Trump's "ill-informed" tweet. He promoted a proposed travel ban on visitors from six mostly Muslim countries and refugees from around the world that has been blocked by US courts. We must be smart!' "We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!"
