BellaNaija - Donald Trump slams Mayor of London over Attack

US President Donald Trump slammed London Mayor Sadiq Khan, gun control supporters and political correctness after a terrorist attack in London left seven dead and dozens wounded. Trump wrote on Twitter yesterday:

At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’

Seeking to reassure London residents and visitors, Khan had told BBC Radio 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.

Khan took to Twitter with his message of reassurance as well:

We are all shocked and angry today – but this is our city. We will never let these cowards win and we will never be cowed by terrorism.

Following Trump’s barrage of tweets, the London mayor’s press office said:

He (Khan) 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.

It also noted that Khan “is busy working with the police, emergency services and the government to coordinate the response to this horrific and cowardly terrorist attack.”

Trump also posted on Twitter Sunday that “we must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people. If we don’t get smart it will only get worse.”

An hour later the US president wrote: “Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That’s because they used knives and a truck!”

Trump issued his first reaction to the attack just one hour after reports emerged, calling for his suspended ban on travellers from six Muslim-majority countries to be implemented. He tweeted:

We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!

An hour before his travel ban tweet, Trump retweeted a headline from the conservative Drudge Report website about a possible attack in London. Trump also issued a message of support to Britain, writing, “Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U. K., we will be there – WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!”

Earlier this week the Trump administration asked the Supreme Court to review the legality of the president’s executive order on a travel ban, which a series of lower court rulings have kept from going into effect. The courts have ruled that plaintiffs are likely to succeed at trial in showing that the policy violates US constitutional prohibitions on religious discrimination. Trump issued an initial travel ban for seven countries in January. After the initial ban became tied up in the courts, his administration issued a revised executive order which limited the ban to six countries.

    I love Donald Trump! He says it as it is!

    I just keep wondering why some Americans, in the name of political correctness, are not supportive of this good man, who wants to protect them from Islam and its crazy adherents.

      It maybe because there are living survivors of the holocaust who have vowed never again. Go pick up a book and read about how it all started, it will answer all of your questions. Extremism is not a religion.

      @Passerby, you clearly don’t know anything about history. The Nazis didn’t annihilate 6 million Jews because the Bible instructed them to. They didn’t recite biblical verses before they sent Jews to gas chambers. They were driven by the ideology that the Aryan race was superior to other races. How could you suggest that christianity played a role in the dastardly crimes they committed? You have to go back to your history books.

      Yes he says it as it is and then goes to Saudi and sings a different tune and even dances with the leaders whilst receiving a title and bling…..be deceiving yourselves. Whilst many of you self righteous people are causing division by hating on people of other faith. The man you think will rescue you ( with tweets) is not walking his talk.

      @Fact, Trump’s visist to Saudi Arabia is a smart move. He wants to do business with them, but he doesn’t want them in America.

      Its interesting speaking to bigots because they expose their ignorance. Dear Darius where do you think the Nazi ideology that the Aryan race was superior came from. Look up Mark of Cain. Dear Darius and other bigots out there people have used relgious text to validate evil since jesus times . jim jones mass murderer extraordinaire went under the guise of christianity to commit his crimes. Read history my dear and see the farmiliar patttern of this evil. Look at the evil. not the religion they hide behind.

      Check your history books again, Christians had their period of killing spree biko. Now na muslims turn until they decide to have sense.

      P.S: I’m not endorsing anything oh

      “…where do you think the Nazi ideology that the Aryan race was superior came from?”

      Are you in any way implying that it came from the Bible? Which verse in the Bible supports the superiority of one race over another? Is it the same Bible that says: “love your enemies and pray for those that persecute you?” Something is definitely wrong with you!

      In Islam, there are verses you recite before you slaughter another human being. Infact, there are 123 verses in the Quran about fighting and killing for Allah. Do we have such a verse or such verses in the Bible?

      And that Igbo boy spewing trash like an illiterate, I hope you fall a victim to Islamic terrorism. If you survive, that’s only when you’ll understand that Islamic terrorism is unjustifiable.

    • Fact

      June 5, 2017 at 3:05 pm

      Darius don’t misinform people o.
      Those verses in the Quran are centered around an incidence. They were revealed when Allah instructed the prophet to fight against the idol worshippers in Mecca after they had been killing torturing and terrorizing Muslims for 13 years. He instructed them to defend themselves.

      Many verses also state that they shouldnt transgress: only fight when they attack.

      You and the terrorists have something g in common when you quote out of context and misinform people to cause chaos. Pls try to get accurate information.

      LMAO Darius please keep up , you are so engrossed in your hate campaign you cant see the woods for the tree. The Nazi used text in the bible to propergate race superiority . also slave trade dealers used text in the bible to support the slave trade. Some of the worst atrocities on humanity have been propergated by humans weiding the religious text, yeap the bible, Quran and other text. Just because you say you are christian or muslim doesnt make u so!! Yes Darius good christians will not twist the bible but EXTREMIST have done and still do. Pretty much the same way isis, boko haram twist the Quran.They are not muslims. I know this Darius because unlike u hate hasnt beclouded my jugdment and i have not been programmed to believe the hate hype. Free yourself with information. Read up about IRA and the loyalist, and their lovely bombing caimpaign in uk. Google davide copeland, look at WACO texas and timothy mcveigh, see also Mark of Cain and how this is still used by far right groups. You do know the KKK are “christian”. Did you know those skin heads are atrracted to trump like rogaine .Be informed stay informed. Lastly i would recommend you read the Quran back to back, speak to muslims, also read the bible back to back. Stop spewing hate under the anonymity of social media. Thats what cowards /terrorist do.

    even as a president trump is very much behaving like a fool. it is not necessarily travelers that commit those attacks. its citizens. imagine if the west did not get themselves involved in the muslim’s business, just because of oil. All could be well. as they say “YOU LEAP WHAT YOU SOW.” so very true in this instance. you made your bed, now happily lay in it. PERIOD.

      What involvement did Sweden have with Muslim countries? Did they not still get attacked by Muslims just a couple months ago ? How about Belgium ? Or even Australia?

    • Darius

      June 5, 2017 at 9:11 am

      I still don’t understand why some people rationalize Islamic terrorism by blaming the West’s foreign policy.

      You don’t want to call a spade a spade becoz you want to create the impression that you are tolerant. Mumu!

      Tell me if Weatern countries are also responsible for Islamic terrorism in these countries: Nigeria, Chad, Yemen, Niger, Mali, the Phillipines, Indonesia, Egypt, Central African Republic, Somalia, Kenya, Pakistan, India, etc.

      marlee – Reap*

      Feyi – A lot of involvement.

      Belgium, for e.g has a heavy Moslem population and they say they are disconnected from the core. Areas like Molenbeek, Antwerp and Anderlecht are quite radicalised.
      “Most of the Muslims in Brussels are from Morocco (70%) and Turkey (20%), with the other 10% from Albania, Egypt, Pakistan and North Africa. They began arriving in Belgium in the 1960s as guest workers. Although the guest-worker program was cancelled in 1974, many immigrants stayed and, using family-reunification laws, brought over their families.”

      Sweden – There are a lot of Syrian refuges there. “The government of Sweden, as well as others in the EU, have uncritically supported the ‘Hillary Clinton doctrine’ which aimed to replace secular governments in the Middle East and replace them with fundamentalist dictatorships. In this way, for instance Sweden participated with air-force support in the bombing of Libya, it has given support to the White Helmets (which represent the ‘rebel’ forces opposing the Syrian government, etc.)

      Australia – “the country has approximately 780 personnel deployed in the Middle East, specifically as part of Operation Okra” (in summary, the fight against Daesh.) There is a long list of military operations involving the country in the Middle East. Anywhere America goes, Australia follows…Always open to displaced people and they have over 100K Syrian refugees.

      Anon, very detailed facts. Don’t forget that it was also through Australia Bush refuel jets to fight Iraq. These people saying logical minded people are trying to be tolerant and mumu are the gullible ones. This isn’t about religion. It is about power! They are using PR to sell it as religion and average human are not thinking nor questioning it! As always, it has been and will always be about power!

      @Anon, congratulations! You have succeeded in saying nothing! The only sin these western countries commit is to allow muslims into their countries and give them citizenship. Why is it that countries in Eastern Europe, Hungary, Poland; Estonia, Slovenia, etc. do not suffer terrorist attacks, even though they participate in American military operations in the Middle East? It’s simple: they don’t allow muslims into their countries. Countries in western Europe gave free reins to terrorist, they are paying for that.

    One very thing I learnt in this life is there is a difference between the correct thing to do and the right thing to do, the right thing to do is to forgive a friend that attempted stabbing you at the back and continue been friends with the person because of your religion that person will see it as a second chance at stabbing you while the right thing to do is to forgive the friend and flee from that person, from social media, calls etc, kill the friendship,i learnt the hard way, now I stick to movies like game of thrones, house of cards, tyrant etc and I so don’t watch Zee and telemundo, as for UK whoever brings in an ant infested wood should be ready to dine with the lizard, this is only the beginning,when they were absorbing the refugees I kept asking my self why can’t rich countries like Saudi,Qatar and UAE absorb them (I stand to be corrected),those ones will come with propaganda and hate and radicalise the aje butter Arab-British citizens, you should not get troubled by the actions of your enemies but by the silence of your friends, I’ve never heard of the king of Saudi or any elite condemn terror attacks in the UK(i might be wrong),what they ought to do was to use fighter jets and relocate them to a safe country in the Middle East, in their eyes they can do no wrong and every blame must be apportioned to Christians and Jews, that’s why I love China and Israel they are not ready to conform to your rules when their safety and development is at stake, my heart goes out to the Londoners and the peace loving Muslims, when ever UK is tired of doing memorial vigils let them go to netanyahu for internship program

    @Feyi, its called collateral damage, not that i like what is happening, but if you think about it logically those innocent people in Lybia, Syria and others don’t deserve what happened to them.

    Truth is terrorism arose from political grievances. That’s why perpetrators are mainly from geopolitically unstable places or sympathetists raised in the West. Hate is viral and so is self righteous bigotry. We ought to be careful because these attitudes only worsen things.
    If it was an Islamic thing then Indonesia should be a hot spot for terror because they are the most populous Islamic country but see how peaceful they are.
    Christ himself would never judge people by the worst amongst them because that is unjust.

    It’s like a white person saying all blacks are gang bangers and criminals. Some white supremacists have actually said blacks are scientifically inferior in intelligence…..stereotypes and bigotry are sinful and ungodly.

    Spread love and kindness and don’t allow messy politics rope you into evil thinking like the terrorists. WWJD?
