Trump responded to the idiocy of Sadiq Khan telling the citizens of London, “There is no reason to be alarmed!” (After all, Khan told us that “Muslim terrorist attacks are just part of living in a big city”)
NY Daily News President Trump blasted London’s mayor Sunday and called for an end to political correctness in a series of furious tweets focusing on the deadly UK terror attacks.
“At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’” Trump wrote.
London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan, used the phrase “no reason to be alarmed” to highlight his city’s safety record and urged Londoners to continue with their lives. But Khan added that he was “appalled” by the attacks and would be ramping up the police presence through the city.
During Sunday’s tweetstorm, Trump stressed an end to political correctness — possibly because Khan declined to mention the term “radical Islam” in a statement to residents.
“We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people,” Trump wrote. “If we don’t get smart it will only get worse.”
Trump also highlighted the terrorists’ weapons of choice. “Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That’s because they used knives and a truck!” he added.
The missives follow his Saturday tweet calling for U.S. courts to restore the “Travel Ban as an extra level of safety” — but it’s unclear how a travel ban could have thwarted Saturday’s bloodshed in London.
