Hillary slams Trump over tweet on London Mayor

New York: Hillary Clinton has slammed United States President Donald Trump over his recent tweets on London terror attack and for misconstruing London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s remarks post the attack.

“This is not a time to lash out, to incite fear, or to use tragedy and terror for political gain,” CNN quoted Clinton, as saying, on Monday.

Referring to Trump’s tweet criticising London Mayor Sadiq Khan, Hilary said, “It’s a time for steady, determined leadership — like we are seeing from local authorities in London, including the Mayor of London.”

Trump launched an attack on the London Mayor, while apparently misconstruing a statement made by him post the incident.

Trump had tweeted, “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is “no reason to be alarmed!”

This was in reference to Khan’s statement that there was no cause for alarm. It’s being touted that he was referring specifically to “a visible increase in police activity on the streets of London in the wake of the attack.”

“Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days. There’s no reason to be alarmed,” Khan had said.

Trump later branded Khan’s statement on the terror attack as a ‘pathetic excuse’.

“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!”Trump tweeted.
