London’s Mayor Slams Trump Retort, Says ‘We Will Never Let These Cowards Win

London's mayor defiantly declared that the city is open after a terrorist attack in the heart of the British capital killed seven people and injured dozens.

"We are all shocked and angry today, but this is our city," Mayor Sadiq Khan said Sunday. "We will never let these cowards win, and we will never be cowed by terrorism."
A short while later, U.S. President Donald Trump took to Twitter to slam the mayor's response to the attack, posting, "7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says 'there is no reason to be alarmed!'"
Responding to that, a spokesman for Khan later said in a statement: "The Mayor is busy working with the police, emergency services, and the government to coordinate the response to this horrific and cowardly terrorist attack and provide leadership and reassurance to Londoners and visitors to our city.
"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."......YES!!
Khan also said he does not believe general elections later in the week should be postponed or moved after the attacks.
"They want to stop us voting on Thursday in the general elections, and enjoying the democracy that we have," he said.
Seven people were killed and nearly 50 were injured in a terrorist attack involving a vehicle striking pedestrians on London Bridge and three attackers stabbing people in nearby Borough Market, authorities said. The three attackers were shot and killed by police.
Khan said he was "appalled and furious" at the attacks, but he said he believes London is one of the safest cities in the world. He said there would be extra police presence in London on Sunday.
"There aren't words to describe the grief and anger that our city will be feeling today," Khan said.
An outpouring of support was expressed by leaders and others around Europe and across the globe.
Trump was more restrained Sunday night, saying at the annual fundraising gala for Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C., that he had spoken with May and had promised the United States' "unwavering support."
"This bloodshed must end," Trump said. "This bloodshed will end."
