London Mayor Sadiq Khan: UK Shouldn't 'Roll Out the Red Carpet' for Trump
In the wake of the deadly terror attack in London, President Donald Trump's war of words with London Mayor Sadiq Khan continues.
On Sunday, Trump criticized Khan for telling citizens there is "no reason to be alarmed” amid increased police presence following the attack that left seven dead and dozens more injured.

Although Khan brushed off Trump's remark, the president doubled down in his censure on Tuesday.
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!

In an interview with the U.K.'s Channel 4 News, Khan said that as he deals with the fallout from the horrific terror attack, he hasn't "got the time to respond to tweets from Donald Trump."
Khan also said that he thinks a planned state visit to the U.K. for Trump should be called off.
"I don't think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the USA in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for," Khan said.
"When you have a special relationship it's no different from when you have got a close mate," he continued. "You stand with them in times of adversity, but you call them out when they are wrong. And there are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong."
