Donald Trump has taken to social media for the second day running to publicly criticise Sadiq Khan’s response to the London Bridge terror attack.

Writing to his 31.4million followers on Monday, the US President said: "Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!"

It's the second day in a row that Mr Trump has launched an attack on Mr Khan.

On Sunday, the Republican appeared to take offence to one particular statement by Mr Khan who said that "Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days. There's no reason to be alarmed".

Seven innocent members of the public were killed after three suspects used a van to mow down pedestrians before stabbing bystanders in nearby Borough Market on Saturday night.

In response to Sunday's outburst, a spokesperson for the London Mayor said Mr Khan "is busy working with the police, emergency services and the government to coordinate the response to this horrific and cowardly terrorist attack".

"He has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks urging Londoners not to be alarmed when they saw more police - including armed officers - on the streets," the spokesperson said.
