Trump sons defend his criticism of London mayor

Khan is London's first Muslim mayor.

Sadiq Khan praised officers for doing a "fantastic job" with the resources they have but said it was "a fact that, over the last seven years, we as a city have lost £600 million from our budget - we have had to close police stations, sell police buildings and we've lost thousands of police staff".

Khan said Monday the United Kingdom should cancel Trump's offciail state visit after his critical comments. She also pushed back against criticism that the president had mischaracterized Khan's remarks, saying that "the media wants to spin it that way".

In a morning appearance on the U.K.'s Sky News, Khan was asked how authorities can stop future attacks in the city.

The second attacker named by police was Rachid Redouane (30), who claimed both Moroccan and Libyan heritage and who had lived in Ireland. In the interview, Mr Khan was, in fact, urging Londoners not to be alarmed when they see more police and armed officers on the streets as a precautionary measure derived from previous terror attacks.

Boris Johnson, the outspoken UK Foreign Secretary, said he saw "no reason" to withdraw the invitation to Trump. "One of the things the police and all of us need to do is make sure we're as safe as we possibly can be".

Up to now, the president had expressed his views only on Twitter.

Khan said he had been too busy dealing with the fallout from the attack to respond directly to the tweet. "Thank you, Mayor Khan, for your leadership during this crisis".

Putin: Syria chemical attack was provocation against Assad
The move drew a chorus of criticism from other world leaders including Angela Merkel of Germany and Emmanuel Macron of France. South Africa said the USA has a "moral obligation" to support poorer countries in the global effort against climate change.

Trump called the spokesman's explanation an "excuse" as he continued to tweet.

Defending the executive order - which is a revision of a stricter one signed in Trump's first days as president - has been such a delicate process that lawyers for the Justice Departments have frequently avoided using the words "travel ban" in legal briefs. Acting U.S. Ambassador in London Lewis Lukens bravely faced off against Trump as he vocalized his support for Sadiq online (below).

"I just haven't had the time to respond to tweets from Donald Trump", said Khan.

"I think Donald Trump is wrong in what he said about Sadiq Khan in the aftermath of the London Bridge attack", May said at a press conference on the campaign trail ahead of Thursday's election.

"I know I speak on behalf of everyone in Tees Valley when I say that we stand side by side with you".

Sen. Susan Collins of ME, a Republican member of the Senate intelligence panel, said the ban was "too broad" but agreed with Trump that better immigration procedures are needed.

The phrase "Keep Calm and Carry On" comes from a motivational poster displayed in Great Britain during World War II, and has since been revived as a symbol of the country's "stiff upper lip" mentality when confronting adversity.
