Mr Khan earlier said the state visit should be scrapped: "State visits are given to world leaders who have had a distinguished service, who have a track record, and in the circumstances, where Donald Trump as president had a Muslim ban, had changed the policies of the U.S., the long-standing policies around refugees, in the circumstances when many British people disagree with many of Donald Trump's policies, we shouldn't be having a state visit".
Theresa May had earlier dodged repeated questioning about President Trump's tweets, declining to criticise the president and instead opting to praise Mr Khan and their close working relationship following the attacks.
Khan's spokesperson said Trump took the mayor's words out of context.
Trump accused Khan of downplaying the attacks, after telling Londoners that "there's no reason to be alarmed".
Although Khan responded to past attacks from the president, he denied doing so this week, with his office saying that the mayor "has more important things than responding to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet". "I think it's time for the people there to probably act and do something a lot more proactive than what's been going on, and I do think that's something people have to do".Читайте также: Marrero hits two home runs to lift Red Sox over White Sox
Khan, who became the first Muslim mayor of a major Western capital city when he was elected in 2016, in October called Trump's campaign pledge to ban Muslims from entering the United States "ignorant". "There's no reason to be alarmed".
"This is a time for us to reach out to the world, to understand more about what is happening - not just in our own country, but indeed across the globe", said Clinton.
But Trump apparently inferred that Khan was saying there was no need for residents to be alarmed about terrorism as he promptly tweeted, "At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!"
"I don't think that's actually true", Sanders said, according to The Guardian.
Trump tweeted another round of criticism Tuesday morning. "[Mainstream media] is working hard to sell it!" tweeted Trump.
David Rank, the charge d'affaires at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, abruptly ended a 27-year career in an announcement Monday, reportedly resigning over Trump's decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate accord.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
