Trump's United Kingdom trip should be canceled, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan

President Trump's public feud with London Mayor Sadiq Khan is not sitting well with Prime Minister Theresa May.

On Sunday, following a Saturday terrorist incident in London that killed 7 and injured 48, Trump tweeted out a message criticizing Khan.

Khan initially refused to engage with Trump, who was seemingly using Khan's comments to push his own stance on immigration, but he has since come out and suggested that Trump's planned state visit to the United Kingdom should no longer take place given his argumentative response to the London mayor. He was clear to note the conditional nature of his rejection of Trump, telling the British broadcaster, "When you have a special relationship, it is no different from when you have got a close mate".

Tim Farron, leader of the Liberal Democrats, made a similar call on Monday, saying Trump was insulting Britain's values "at a time of introspection and mourning".

"I don't know how to tell you this, but I really don't care", Khan told the Associated Press when asked questions regarding Trump's tweets, noting he "really couldn't be bothered about what Donald TrumpDonald TrumpLondon mayor on Trump tweets: "I really don't care" Trump decides against Russian Federation investigation "war room": report Linda McMahon: "We're not even staffed up to where we need to be" MORE tweets".

Khan said there was "no reason to be alarmed" by an increased police presence in London following yet another terror attack on Saturday on the London Bridge.

"I think he's a very, very unsafe man", Himes said of Trump, "and touches on some of the uglier undercurrents of American politics".

LeBron's brilliance not enough in Game 2 loss to Warriors
From purely a scoring standpoint, Irving has done fine: 24 points in Game 1 and then 19 points in Game 2 of the Finals. Maybe LeBron, Irving playing his A-game and the Cleveland crowd would be enough for them to manage three wins.

President Trump has used a partial quote of Khan's to accuse the mayor, who is Muslim, of being soft on terrorism.

Trump tweeted another round of criticism Tuesday morning.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan speaks to reporters at the London Ambulance Service headquarters at Waterloo, central London, Tuesday June 6, 2017.

"The invitation has been issued and accepted but I see no reason to change that", he said. "Two weeks later he's proven to be right", Trump Jr. said. "And I think that's what [my father is] trying to say because he's been proven right every time".

"In the aftermath of the London Bridge attack, we have been working with Sadiq Khan, party politics has been put to one side".

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.
