President Donald Trump’s son has ridiculed the Mayor of London, hours after Wednesday’s suspected terrorist attack. Donald Trump Jr retweeted a September 2016 interview with Sadiq Khan, in which he said that readiness for a terrorist attack was “part and parcel of living in a great global city”.
Mr Trump Jr tweeted a link to the article, commenting in disgust: “You have to be kidding me?! Terror attacks are part of living in the big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan.”
On social media it was pointed out that Mr Khan did not say that attacks were to be expected, but rather that the threat of them was part of life.
The mayor’s statement was made after the New York bombing, in which 29 people were wounded by homemade explosives placed in rubbish bins in Manhattan.
“Part and parcel of living in a great global city is you’ve got to be prepared for these things, you’ve got to be vigilant, you’ve got to support the police doing an incredibly hard job,” said Mr Khan, who was in New York at the time.
